I currently use an MXR 10 band. i bought it b/c i needed something, at the time, to tame some of the sub-bass and frequencies above 4-5k. Besides that, everything is flat except for slight boosts at 250hz and 1k.
I have been looking elsewhere for something different mainly b/c I just acquired an fdeck HPF-3 which renders what I've been doing with the mxr for sub bass kind of pointless. So I've been contemplating guitar eq pedals so I have more flexibility with my mids, and then I'll just cut everything above 4-5k again. The Empress para eq really intrigues me, but i feel like i won't be able to roll off all of those 4k-plus highs if i want to boost at 1k for example. So i feel like if I kept my 10 band and got the empress also, I'd have lots of flexibility given the 10 fixed bands with the mxr and shaping the other frequencies inbetween with the empress. then there's amp eq which is kept flat mostly.
does this sound like a good plan or do you folks think it's needless to have 2 eq pedals? I also kind of want an LPF too.....AM I crazy or what!?!?!?!
