This year I aquired a bjf Sea Blue EQ, a t.c. Dual Parametric EQ, and a Antelope Effects Morning Dew EQ/buffer. They are each part of different rigs right now and have been very usefull as tone shapers, buffers, and boosts. The bjf is at the top of my list. Just an amazing sounding pedal; simple to use and and hard to turn off. The big surprise of the bunch was the Morning Dew. I bought one of the prototypes off the builders emporium here last month on a whim and have been very pleasantly surprised. This pedal is a real triple threat, eq, boost, buffer, in one box. The t.c. is doing great things for fattening and smoothing my low volume, apartment tones. EQ never seemed liked a very sexy or desirable pedal for me to get in the past, but now I wouldn't set up a board without one. ...and knowings half the battle.
