Advice- Boss Equalizer Pedal or AmpWedge?
Ok- just want some opinions/advice- I fill-in for an open mic night every couple of weeks, and my main band is DOA.
So for this open mic night I play thru my TC BH250 head into a Swr GoLight 210 Cabinet.
This is right around enough power without pushing my head past 3 oclock on Master Volume.
The only issue is I am getting a lot of boom, and not as much definition as I'd like. The two options in my budget of what I want to spend to fix this on the cheap( Less than or = $80.)
1. Buy the Boss Equalizer pedal (GEB-7) and cut that 50MHz freq down.
2. Buy the Amp Wedge and get some tilt on my 2x10 cabinet (which I would think might improve my clarity)
Anyone with experience using either of these? (Which would you do and why?
Thanks in Advance.
Of the two choices you list, I'd try tilting back the cab, which you can do for free before committing to a purchase :)
My first option would be an fDeck
I agree that you should be able to find some way of tilting the cab back without spending $$.
I like the GEB-7 - but it's usefulness (to me) revolves mainly around the fact you can switch it on and off...It sounds like you're really just looking for a sound to get you through the gig. Why not just turn the bass down a pinch at the amp eq?
yeah, option 3=stick it up on a chair; less lows, more definition, no money at all.
Could be the guitar booming things up with "bass" boost. Their lows get into our low mids where most rooms boom. You're probably zooming in on the wrong frequency range.
To get into it with cab elevation you need two to three ft. A parametric filter is what you really want. Notch out the boom. But look at guitar eq before going there!
While I did get my fDeck for upright, lots of folks swear it tames the boom on BG very well, so I threw that option out there
