    Any opinions? And any good tones out of it?

    Not me. Sucks out the subtle tone from my bass and my preamp. Adds a very 'cheap' timbre to the tone to me. Output sounds like a cheap bass. Just my personal feedback.

    I haven't found it to be quite so displeasing - for the price it is a very powerful EQ pedal. But YMMV, I only using mine to drop the signal of hot outputs when switching between basses, not for radical tone shaping.

    I'll have an opinion after this weekend. Picking mine up this Saturday, $60, semi-locally. I'm excited.

    I like mine.
    I shape the tone just s smidge on the low end and high end. It adds a beefy throatyness. I leave it on all the time, it's never off.

    I pretty much just use mine for a little mid boost right before my envelope filter. It's not a half bad little EQ, and can be found for cheap.

    I use an older GE7B that has different EQ points and find it a useful tool. It's mainly used to dial in my preferred fretless tone and add a touch of boost the even it out to my other bass.

    Sweet. Well I have a model from 2002 and it's a very adaptable little EQ pedal for a good price. I use mine to boost low mids and a little treble for punch.
