I have been searching long time for really great EQ. In my opinion EQ and reverb are THE MOST important pedals in any rig. Doesn't matter you play metal, rock, blues or country and Equator nailed it. I'm metal player and been looking long time for EQ, that would shape low end and lower mids and change em into incredible roar. Equator is a first EQ I have did it. It took me few days to learn and tweak this pedal, but final result is incredible. So my rig is Peavey 6505+ to Fryette Powerstation PS-100 to Friedman Runt 2x12 120Watts cab ( V30"s)Run Equator as a first pedal in FX loop , before delay and reverb at 18Volt from Cioks DC-7. Before I bought it, have read review that it's noisy. To be honest every EQ is kind of noisy .MXR are very noisy, WMD utility EQ noisy, Whirlwind EQ noisy...etc, etc, but Equator isn't really that noisy. There is a small amount of noise at 18V , but totally acceptable to the point you don't have to use noise gate. Also important is how you set your volume knob on the pedal. I matched signal level coming from fx send with pedal. Now I concentrated on two mids frequencies. Mid 1 and Mid2 frequencies ( lower row) These two knobs ( actually job they doing) are genius. Together with bass knobs allow you to shape your low end to very wide tonality spectrum. From juicy and tight pure metal low end , to doom destruction. It simply need a little bit time to understand this pedal and spend a bit time to tweak it. In general all pots reacts really great for adjustments. No hissing high or boomy bass. Equator is really great tool and I really recommend it to everybody...doesn't matter what kind of music you play.

Like every Wampler pedal I own, this one has an abundance of self noise. I know the man himself tells you to change out your power supply but I'm running off batteries so moot point. That being said, if you can live with a little noise the pedal does do as advertised. Find it very useful for puling out some of the honk of a Tumnus or pulling back some of the icepick of a tele. I picked up two and plan on keeping them.
