    So i have a Fishman Plat Stage running into my GK MB200 head. I've been playing alot with the knobs to dial in a sound that pleases me, between both the head and preamp. While i can dial in a decent tone, i can't help but think an EQ pedal would greatly enhance my ability to do so. The bass/treble/mid sweep on the Fishman seems kind of limiting.

    Would an EQ pedal be a worthy addition to the chain or would you think just springing for a beefier preamp would be a better option? Also, any EQ pedals that you might suggest?

    Although a lo-tech suggestion, I’ve had good results and years of reliability with a humble Boss Bass EQ. 1MOhm input, seven band eq plus plenty of gain boost (or cut).

    While EQ will help it will also change
    the signal, so sometimes it can complicate the issue I’d reccommend
    getting a preamp that will solve your issues.
