Boss EQ-200 Graphic Equalizer Pedal

The BOSS EQ-200 is possibly the most versatile graphic equalizer pedal ever devised for guitar and bass. And thanks to its stereo I/O, it could be a big benefit to your keyboard rig too. The EQ-200 actually offers dual EQs that can be configured for stereo, series, or parallel operation, and an insert function even allows you to add external effects pedals with pre- and/or post-equalization. Each band offers 15dB of boost or cut, and thanks to its global level control, you can even tailor the BOSS EQ-200 graphic EQ pedal to be your go-to boost pedal as well.

Dual 10-band EQ

Studio-quality sound – 32-bit/96 kHz to be precise – isn’t too common on EQ pedals. Boss aren’t messing around; you also get a whopping 15dB cut/boost on each frequency, a huge tonal palette. You can also adjust the center frequency for each band to work with just about any instrument.

It goes a step further though – the 10-band EQ comes in dual-channel form. The signal flow of these channels can be adjusted to suit your needs. Link them, use them independently, patch in other effects for pre/post-EQ processing – great for overdrives.

Maximum control

As with the rest of the 200 Series, the EQ-200 boasts a comprehensive but user-friendly control panel. First up, the graphic display gives you a handy real-time view of your EQ curve. The two channels are toggled with a dedicated panel button, and navigating deeper parameters is super quick and accessible. The Panel Lock function also disables all controls to prevent accidental changes.

Four onboard slots for presets let you easily save your favourite sounds, with the footswitch letting you recall them instantly. The Manual setting reflects the current panel settings, giving you that little bit of extra flexibility on stage or in the studio. The footswitches can be assigned to turn channels on/off, or you can control using external footswitches, expression pedals, MIDI and much more.
