Behringer EQ700 7-Band Graphic Equalizer Effects Pedal

Finding it hard to get the perfect sound from your guitar? Maybe your guitar gets lost in the mix? Do you have major feedback issues with your acoustic? The problem's not your guitar—you need an equalizer! The GRAPHIC EQUALIZER EQ700 provides total control over your tone and puts the brakes on annoying feedback, no matter what the performance situation. You can instantly improve the sound of your guitar with a little help from the BEHRINGER EQ700.

Master of Tone
With 15 dB of available boost or cut per band (that’s a lot!), the EQ700's seven frequency bands have been carefully optimized to provide the ultimate tools for EQing the guitar. Of course, to make full use of the EQ700’s capabilities, it helps to first understand some basics about the frequency range of your axe.

The EQ700 covers the audio spectrum from below 100 Hz to over 6.4 kHz, allowing you to effectively cut or boost specific frequencies to help focus your sound. Special attention has been paid to the critical midrange frequencies, which can make or break your tone. The following section offers tips that will have you sculpting the perfect guitar sound in no time at all.

Understanding EQ
Most performers don’t have a clue about what good equalization can do for their sound. Maybe you’ve heard the old maxim, "Make a sine-wave to get really good sound," or "Make a smiley-face, that always works." Sadly, this qualifies as advice from the uninformed. Just as every room is unique, so is every musical instrument. Even guitars made by the same manufacturer, using the same materials, on the same day can vary a great deal.

People provide a good example of this principal—although we are all similar, we don’t all wear the same size shoes, or even have the same color eyes. There is no one "perfect" equalization curve that fits every scenario; equalization is dynamic.

Applying EQ to the Guitar
Most acoustic and electric guitar energy lies between 100 Hz and 6.4 kHz. Even slight changes in this range can cause a tremendous variation in overall energy and impact, as the human ear is especially sensitive to this range.

Boosting frequencies around 200 Hz - 400 Hz often provides warmth and body, while boosting frequencies in the 3.2 kHz - 6.4 kHz range adds clarity to clean guitar signals. Depending on the amount of distortion, this same range can ruin the sound of an overdriven electric guitar by adding harsh harmonics.

One of the most common mistakes is adding too much bass to acoustic guitars. If the low frequencies are boosted excessively, acoustics can easily get lost in the overall mix. Most acoustic guitars are also prone to feedback in the 200 Hz - 400 Hz range.

A general rule of thumb—the best results are often achieved by finding and reducing the frequency bands that are offending, and then turning up the overall volume, rather than boosting one specific band.

How the specific frequency bands of the EQ700 can shape your sound:

   • 100 Hz (low bass)
      Boost: To add fullness to guitars, especially clean electrics
      Cut: To reduce muddy or boomy tone and control acoustic guitar feedback

    • 200 Hz (soft bass)
      Boost: To increase the warmth of all guitars and provide a slightly harder sound
      Cut: To increase clarity and reduce feedback in acoustic guitars

    • 400 Hz (hard bass)
      Boost: To add definition to rhythm parts
      Cut: To reduce feedback in acoustic guitars (This is a major feedback zone for piezo-equipped flattops)

    • 800 Hz
      Boost: To add an aggressive edge to the overall sound
      Cut: For reducing the nasal or horn-like content, often referred to as the “cheap guitar” syndrome

    • 1.6 kHz
      Boost: To make the guitar cut through the mix. Creates a more distinctive plucked tone
      Cut: To eliminate dullness and competition with vocals (vocal fundamentals occupy the range from about 1.0 kHz - 2.5 kHz)

   • 3.2 kHz
      Boost: To add significant attack to all guitars. Creates an even more distinctive plucked tone
      Cut: To eliminate harshness

   • 6.4 kHz
      Boost: To add edge and increase brightness to all guitars
      Cut: To soften thin-sounding guitars and remove string squeak

Behringer EQ700 7-Band Graphic Equalizer Effects Pedal
Behringer EQ700 7-Band Graphic Equalizer Effects Pedal is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact EQ that's a great value for the priceFirst, it's really yellow. Much more yellow than the photo suggests. Which doesn't matter. Aside from being very, very yellow, the EQ700 is a good, compact EQ for the money. Unlike some Behringer boxes, it's quiet when operating. There is some static when you adjust the bands, but that's the extent of the noise.Be prepared to do a lot of bending over if used as a true foot switch, unless you intend to set it and forget it. Otherwise, the obvious nature of the unit will require you to become a yo-yo whenever you need to make adjustments. The solution: Buy multiples and preset them for your changes. At this price, you can. I'm using three in a very non-traditional application. It's shaping the tone of a Hammond organ. Not a keyboard, an organ. And I wouldn't consider leaving home without it.The advertised 15 dB signal boost is real. Jack up the master volume and you'll be peeling paint on the top end and shattering glass and inducing chest pains with the bottom end this little guy is capable of producing.Durability, another (somewhat unfair) knock on Behringer products, hasn't been an issue. It's held up. It likely helps that it doesn't get the same kind of on-off-on stomping you might give your other pedals. But the sliders do get a workout. And so far, so good.Use a power supply, otherwise you'll drain the battery fairly quickly. Figuring out how to install that battery is the biggest challenge. Use a pen to push in the pins located where the pedal is hinged to the box. Loosen one, then the other, and it pops right off to expose the battery compartment.It gets four stars for the static issue. But otherwise, it's a problem-free five star stomp box that you'll want to add to your board. And it's really yellow.
