Yes You Do Need A Graphic EQ Pedal! Plus: Latest Kingsley Jester
Published on 21 Aug 2015
In this episode, Daniel and Mick explore the basics of the much maligned graphic EQ pedal, and how it can be immensely useful on your pedalboard.
Using a standard Boss GE-7, they explain how you can use an EQ pedal as a global tone shaper, a solo boost, a rhythm cut and also to shape the sound of your overdrive sounds, depending where you place it in the signal chain.
If you're having problems cutting through a mix, retaining clarity in your sound or need something to help with volume cuts or boosts, a graphic EQ pedal could be the very thing.
They also take a brief look at the latest Kingsley Jester valve overdrive pedal, using it as the filth maker in all of today's tones. For more on the Jester, go here:
Amps used are the Mallard 18-watt Marshall clone into a 2x12 with Greenbacks and a Lazy J 20 combo. Dan is playing his 2002 Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Standard, and Mick is playing his Fender American Vintage ’62 Stratocaster. As always, switching is handled effortlessly by TheGigRig G2.
