Excellent little tool

TonyOsax, 19.05.2017
I have been trying to set up my looper to play backing tracks through a Mackie SRM 350 pa speaker to get enough volume to practice my sax. The volume is fine but the speaker is ridiculously bass heavy and unusable at home.

I have tried taming the bass with a small Behringer mixer which helps a bit, but it's not hitting the right frequencies and it's a cumbersome solution. I had thought about a graphic eq pedal but had doubts that it would be effective because of my experiences with the Behringer. Then I discovered the Artec Parametric EQ and decided to take a risk with it because of its potential ability to target the frequencies I want to control.

It works! It does exactly what I need and is very effective. It's very simple to operate - you can set a boost or cut and then turn the frequency knob until you hit the offending frequency. Then you can alter the Q setting to adjust the range of frequencies you want to modify.

The build quality is good, at least for what I need. I do agree with other reviewers that having tiny frequency and q control knobs with an even tinier black on black centre point marker is a very poor design. It was ok at home where I could hold it up to a bright light to see, but using it live to adjust the tone would be a challenge to say the least.

The sound quality is good and I didn't detect any noise or impairment of the signal going to the speaker. It works well with the supplied battery it is a much tidier solution than a mixer with an external power supply. I don't know what the battery life is yet.

So, in summary, for my very specific requirement it is an excellent solution and the Artec is a fraction of the price of other parametric eq pedals.

Not for me...

I have used a graphic EQ pedal on my guitar for some time and regard as a very underrated piece of kit.
However having read that parametric EQ is gives more control I thought I would give this Artec a go especially as it is relatively cheap.I also thought it would be an inexpensive way to get that honky stuck wah sound.
Let's talk about the build quality first.The case is some sort of cast metal and seems very sturdy.Battery access is screwless(hooray!).The controls generally are OK but the gain and width knobs are very small have no markers on them so it is difficult to know where you are.
So what's it like in use?Firstly forget the stuck wah sound.It just about gets you in the right ball park--but only just.And using the knobs to shape your tone does not make a huge amount of difference.
Maybe I'm not using the Artec correctly--there were no instructions/manual included--so for now I'll stick with my graphic EQ.It is easier to use and has a greater range.

EQ is perhaps the least noticed of all types of audio processing, but also the most important.
