Question rack eq??

hi, all
i have been thinking about getting a rack eq, the berhinger fbq 1502, http://www.behringer.com/FBQ1502/index.cfm?lang=ENG

but i dont really know how much it would effect my overall sound, would it make a huge difference or only a little? i have never used one before and don't really know what to expect.

Re: rack eq??

I on the other hand have always liked Behringer. I have a couple of units and they sound good to me. I have never used the EQs though.

Obviously they are not as good as tc electronics, but for the price I think they are fine.

Re: rack eq??

Sorry, I forgot to answer the question asked.

I used an eq pedal for a while and it did allow me to tweak the sound. If you have major tone issues, then it may be that your amp/guitar/pickups are not working together. If it is just a question of smoothing out a few bumps, then I would say it's an ok idea.
