Since I'm so cheap, and none seem to provide me with any sort of holy grail of tone, I get none
If you have a few dimes to spare and are missing something consistent and identifiable from your tone that EQ can't seem to fix, you should poke your nose into a few stores that sell some good ones and see if a comp works for you. If you don't have that problem, you're probably good.
