Sound Quality



Ok, it’s a dual ten band GRAPHIC equalizer. GRAPHIC equalizers are criticized for abysmal phase shift. This does have that, but not so bad.

The thing about it, is it just really doesn’t sound that good.

It would probably be GREAT on a guitar, in a effects loop. Because then the guitar speaker, and the low-pass filter the engineer recording the guitar would apply, would prevent you from hearing the nastyness that occurs in the high-end on this thing.

Basically, what I’m saying is use it in applications where it’s degree of ‘fi’, is limited, else, be prepared for some fucking sadness.
