Another GEB-7 Question... (i know i know)

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by ImNotGeddyLee, Oct 19, 2001.


  1. ok.. i got it in, its hooked it up, and i am not sure what i want to do with it :)
    i already have a decent all around sound from my GK but i want that hollow justin chancellor sound to cover tool songs and slapping. I know its the "smile" and i should cut the mids and boost the highs and lows (i do this well in basic 3 or 4 band eq) but what frequencies do i cut and what ones do i boost. I know its the highs and the lows but i just cant seem to do it to well with this unit in a basic smile setup. Someone help a clueless EQer out. :confused:

    I'd start by boosting 50 and 100 Hz, cutting around 200-300 Hz, and stay low until 1500 Hz or so. 1500 to 3000 Hz is where all the slapping character is going to be, so that's definitely where you'll be messing around finding "your" sound.

    I personally like the Heavy Metal setting that is in the book. I do not play heavy metal, but i like to kick on the setting for some really deep sound. Check it out.

    OK:

    The photo at www.bossus.com shows frequency bands of 50, 120, 400, 500, 800, 4.5k, and 10k Hz.

    I recommend starting with a slight boost (+2 or so)on 50 and 120, cut 400, 500, and 800 (-4 or so on all of 'em) and boost 4.5 to +3 or +4. I doubt the 10k slider will do much to your tone, but boost it to +3 also. If it doesn't sound "hollow" enough, try pulling down 120 some.

    Let us know how that sounds...
