Wow I take back all the bad things I said about Graphic EQs
I started using a boss Graphic EQ pedal that my guitarist had lying around at band practice. He doesn't use it and I was always against them. But the other night I hooked it up for sh**s and giggles and started tweaking the knobs and wow! It really put the punch back into my tone! I couldn't believe how much of a difference it made. I forget the model of it but it really made a huge difference and I am very pleased with my tone now.

I'd love to know which one, been contemplating this myself...
Does a good/decent one have to be expensive?

I too have been curious about this myself. The boss ones always sort of intrigued me. I have quite a bit EQ'ing option going on on my board as is. But I'd still like to know the model you're trying. I see a lot of bassist use them.

Graphics are nice, but parametrics are very cool too. Especially for compensating different room acoustics. I try not to use them for tone shaping but more for problem solving personally.

I have an MXR 6 Band in my chain. Gives me so much more oomph where I need it

I use a Boss GEB-7

I think it was the GE-B7.

I had both a parametric eq and a graphic on my board for a spell but needed the space so i took them off.
I added a 31 band to my rack. Love being able to adjust individual frequencies for each bass or each room. Not sure I could go back to parametric eqs

Duke, I've been looking at 31-band eqs, which one do you use? Are there any features you've found more useable than others(LPF/HPF etc.)?

I use this graphic eq and I love it:

Any EQ is only as good as the person using it.

I rely on my graphic EQ to make sure the bass "sits in the mix" properly at live shows. My amp head has extensive EQ'ing so I don't need a pedal for it, but in my experience, a pedal is just as good, as long as you know how to use it and understand how instruments interact with each other at different frequencies. Ideally, you'd be able to individually EQ the guitars, drums, vocals and other instruments to complement each other, but bass is probably the most important since "boominess" and "muddiness" of room sound are in the meat of the electric bass range.
