In news that precicely 3 people here will give a fuck about, behold my new EQs! Grabbed the pair of these off Reverb and wired them up last night in line behind my BAEs. So far, they're pretty damned nice - pushing the front end of the BAE and then running my shitty Squier bass (which honestly sounds surprisingly good) into it and then through one of these sounded pretty immediately great, and it was surprisingly enjoyable to do a little bit of EQ tweaking to, say, pull out the high end fizz or tighten up the midrange a little on rhythm guitars, or bake in the slight 1.5khz boost I usually end up putting on leads right from the get-go using a really musical sounding EQ. And, these really ARE musical sounding - it's been a LONG time since I've been as happy with the lead sound I was getting out of a single SM57 as I was from this with a little bit of a 8k shelf and a little bit taken off the low end at 220hz, as well as that aforementioned 1.5khz mild boost. I'm pretty happy with them. Besides, for the time being the AxeFX hasn't (to the best of my knowledge) gotten beyond modeling mics and into modeling botique channel equalization, so there's still that.
