I recently picked up the Empress Para Eq and I'm really diggin' it! I've tried it before and after my beloved overdrive pedal (Kingsley Jester) and so far I'm preferring it "after" the Jester Overdrive.

Do you prefer to use your parametric eq before or after your overdrive pedals?

(I should have titled this Pedal Eq Users as would like to hear from anyone using EQ pedals)

Either way can be interesting, but I've found that PEQ before the OD can really shape the OD sound. I would be interested in experimenting with placing the OD pedal between two PEQ. Boost/cut frequencies going in, Cut/Boost coming out. Reverse that. Lots of different counts with that. You can make your amp/OD sound like a lot of different amps that way.

You forgot the more obvious option: 2 OD's, one before and one after the PEQ.
Great point! Since getting the Jester all of my other OD's have been relegated to the closet so you're right, that option went right past me.
