    I am looking for an inexpensive EQ pedal just for tweaking the sound for the in ears coming out of an Eden WTDI.

    Anyone tried the Pyle Pro? Pyle Pro PPDLEQB1 7-Band Graphic Equalizer Bass Guitar Pedal 248-4536

    This Arion looks better. Arion MEQ-2 7-band Bass Graphic Equalizer Pedal | Allparts.com

    I have tried the guitar version of the Boss 7 band and it was okay, kind of noisy. I actually like the danelectro fish and chips EQ better, but those don't have much resolution on the low end bands.

    What's your price point? Cheap means different things to different folks. Behringer has their copy of the Boss Bass EQ, which is dirt cheap. I've used it before, and from what I recall it wasn't particularly noisey, though like most Behringer the housing is cheap plastic.

    I like the Arion's frequency set better.

    Looking for under $75USD new or used. I tend to stay away from Behringer, but its good to know that the Behringer EQ was not noisey.

    Probably should mention I am looking for a graphic EQ, not a parametric EQ.

    You might be able to find an MXR 10 Band EQ at that price used. I've had a couple and they are very nice-low noise, lots of frequencies to play with. :)

    I have a couple of cheap boss clone eqs on my board, the Behringer and a Chord pedal. Both are ok, no noise issues to speak of, but I only use them to cut, not boost.

    That Arion on does look good though, I could do with one with more control in the low end.

    MXR 10-band and Boss 7-band are both good and cheap.

    Danelectro Fish and Chips 7 Band EQ is what I have and it does what it supposed to, I dig it.
    Less than $30 new

    Bah. My Behringer BEQ700 is going on 5 years old and is still working. I still use it at home for practice straight into the mixer board as a "preamp" when I am just working on scales and such. It served me every weekend for two years before I built a full bass effects board.

    Yes, it is plastic. But, I used it as an always-on effect and I baby my pedals. The way some people stomp on their boxes, you'd a thunk they saw a Texas Cockroach.

    MXR 6-Band is good enough for me.
