    I see Peavey and Carvin each have current models - the Pro Bass series and the BXR Carvins. What else is out there?

    AMP and Thunderfunk products. Sound phenominal too!

    eden wt550, wt800 and thunderfunk 420 and 550. that I know of...

    they are SEMI-parametric meaning you can vary the frequency and +/- , but not the width of the "Q" or how wide the range of frequencies they affect.

    Few, if any, are fully parametric (frequency, gain, Q), most are semi-parametric. Whatever issues people may have with Eden these days, I believe their semi-parametric EQ is the best in the business. The irony is that the amp sounds fantastic with everything set flat. On Eden EQ, a little dab'll do ya. Everything you want is between 11:00 and 1:00 o'clock.

    Euphonic Audio amps. Huge, versatile EQ sections with just about every variable you could want.

    Very true, I think the thread starter was meaning semi-parametric, but I'm only guessing.

    On the smaller side, GK Micro Bass MB150E head has two bands of semi-parametric.
  9. The Mesa Walkabout has 3 semi para bands of eq on it.

    +1. The Eden EQ is very useful. My only gripe is that the settings are WAY to sensitive, plus/minus 15 db I think. 10 or 12 db would allow for better fine tuning. Adding a couple of clicks really changes the tone drastically. But it is very useful in certain situations.

    The GB Neo-pak has a semi-parametric mid, with shelving bass and treble. It gets the job done beautifully more often than not.

    There are lots of heads out there that have good semi-parametric EQ's. The thing you have to be careful of with them is overlapping frequencies. Depending on how they are designed, some down handle it well. The Eden's do handle it well, very well. Just a little too sensitive IMO.
