A really powerful tool
HH1978, 28.01.2020
I started using it when I realised that the beautiful tones I got from my guitars, amps and pedals at home had a tendency to get drowned when playing with my band.

I chose this equalizer after reading opinions on forums. I was looking for a affordable, simple yet effective equalizer, with a good build quality.

The GE-7 proved really effective at the task. Basically I use it only to make my tone sit nicely in the mix on rehearsals or gigs. I don't use it at home, because what I'm trying to do is to sound as good as home in a band context. I don't use it to create special sounds or to make my amp sound like another one, though it can certainly do that.

I would strongly recommend this unit to any guitarist playing in a band, especially if there are other midrange focused instruments. What works for me is : cut off 100HZ, slightly cut 200HZ, slightly boost 400HZ, slightly cut 800HZ, slightly boost 1KHZ, 3.2KHZ at unity or slightly below, 6,4HZ is basically the presence, so I adjust it depending on the amp and the context.

Building quality is what you expect from Boss.

Worth mentionning I didn't notice any coloration from the buffered bypass when the pedal is off.

an absolute must-have
NEJC, 07.02.2016
Not many guitarists realize how significant an eq can be. But once you start using one, it al becomes clear. I bought mine to use with my fender telecaster standard usa. I felt the guitar needed some more low end and high tones trimming. And when this pedal came in it did exactly that with top grades. There really isn't much to it, you just plug it in, set the equalizer to a desired level and that's it. I like that it's simple. What i dont like is that these meters are extremely sensitive. You need to move the knob for like a smallest amount possible and the result is already very noticeable, so in some cases its quiet difficult to find and then keep this setting, especially if you use it for live shows. Just a touch of some cables on top of an eq can change its character drastically, so i advise some caution and second check after transporting it. Other than that, this pedal works superbly, and i cant play without it.

Great Pedal Universally Used
KMickP, 25.03.2020
Many boards have this pedal and there is a reason for that, it’s compact, sounds great and can be used as a boost to push valve amps to their sweet spot as well as shaping the tone. I am a guitar player and I had one of these 20 years ago when I was gigging in lots of different rooms so this pedal is great for adjusting your tone depending on the acoustics of the gig. Also great for solo boosts and pushing the frequencies to get you heard without deafening your band members! A must have in my view and it’s great value!

Boss GE-7 is an essential part of any guitar players pedal board
HenryJay, 28.09.2014
Many guitar players may not realize that a graphic equalizer is an absolute must. The guitars, preamps, speakers, cabinets and effects all distort the tone of your sound in their own way.

GE-7 helps you with your final touches. With a few tweaks you can make your sound stand out just right. Just bear in mind that you get the best result by weakening the unwanted frequencies - not the other way around. In other words do not start by boosting any frequency, that's really your last resort and adds unwanted hiss.

When the sound is right, you can then boost the volume, if necessary. So GE-7 is a booster as well. I am using two GE-7 units, because otherwise I would need to change the settings for every sound change. Ge-7 has well chosen frequency bands for your adjustment. Guaranteed results!

More useful than you might imagine
Lie-Knot, 06.04.2021
Boss are the boss.

Not only 7 bands of eq but a level control too. Very useful if the output of your guitar is too loud or soft.

Rock solid Boss quality
FLP , 16.12.2020
Like any Boss pedal also this one is rock solid and build to last forever. The EQ clearly affects the sound like it should. Plus the extra power output makes this pedal all worth it.

For boost? Ofcourse!!!
VedranD, 17.09.2015
Since I bought PRS SE Standard 24 which has a feature to split pickups I was looking for a booster to keep signal solid and stable. This is awesome pedal for boosting. You can really feel the difference in a sound just by moving pots 1mm. It doesn't color your tone when on bypass, even when it is setup flat. I just love it, it is amazing. It can do with your sound whatever you want it to do.

I you don't have it get it.
Suri, 06.09.2020
Every guitar rig should have one, at least some EQ pedal, and if you want one, BOSS is just one of the best. It is very transparent and easy to use. If you like "simple" overdrives it is a must, heck, get two and the other one can be used to match almost any amp to your ears, well at least make it passable.

Just get one :D

Great pedal to shape your sound!
the_end, 04.12.2020
This pedal opens a lot of possibilities and is a lot of fun if you're on the more experimental side. Depending on where you put it in your chain it can really create some unexpected tones! I keep mine at the end of the chain to control my final signal but if I could I would have a second one to put somewhere in the middle of the chain. It's easy to use, durable and makes a real difference when used properly.

The only downside that I found is that the slides are very volume sensitive so sometimes I got caught a little off-guard when turning it on after setting up because it would be a lot louder than I expected, but it's something you get used to!

Very very good
Simodamia, 22.02.2019
I use it at the end of the chain.

Very good sound quality.
No noise.
For me the gain feature is useful.

I'd like to choose the middle frequencies, but not many eqs have this feature.
I don't like Boss design.

Good Tank
Latvia, 21.06.2019
Like always, built like a TANK (I think I can give it to my grand grand child later)
Feel like knobs are bit sensitive but still really nice.

Great pedal. As expected!
Stefan113, 07.02.2014
This unit replaced the Behringer copy (the GEQ700) and it blows it away in all departments. Most importantly, it sounds far better. There is less internal noise, even at high boost settings, and it is much more responsive and therefore more versatile. The pedal is of much better build quality - the Behringer copy is plastic, whereas this like all boss pedals is the solid metal, almost bombproof casing. I use the pedal as a solo boost within my 4 piece rock band, in the effects loop of my Marshall combo (JCM900) and the combination of an excellent responsive EQ and the boost/cut facility allows me to get the perfect lead tone with a touch of boost. If I was to have any problems with this pedal, i'd buy exactly the same one again. Simple as that.

Chameleon pedal
EricDC, 25.07.2020
I first got this pedal to put in the effects loop of an amp that had a sensetive master control to tame the volume to not get evicted.
Also great to re-shape the EQ to make an amp sound good at lower volumes.
When used infront of the amp can act as a clean boost or even a pseudo drive pedal when boosting certain frequencies.
You just can not go wrong with this EQ pedal great allrounder.

Great EQ
20.03.2015
I bought this pedal to replace a behringer eq pedal as the switch was a bit sticky. As usual with Boss, this is a very sturdy pedal and does exactly what it says on the tin!
I actually mainly use this with my acoustic guitar, just a little bass and a touch of volume and the piezo pickup turns into a nice kick drum for looping. I also use it to add a touch more volume for lead work so I use the same settings. I have not tested it much outside of that but I'm sure it could handle any eq issues!

Great as a booster
IamHobo, 01.03.2018
The EQ is great anyway, but as a booster, it can't be beat. I leave all the dials flat and put the level up to the 1st marker. It doesn't alter the tone, just gives you instant volume.
It's a little noisy/hissy on my board, but in a live situation you won't notice it.

Pedalboard Standard
AC 2bb, 22.11.2018
This is a classic swiss-knife pedal used by touring guitarists in a million different ways.

I personally use it as nuanced booster for leads, and have come up with settings for each of my guitars. The interface is simple, and the EQ is very musical.

My only grumble is that it's a little annoying that the inidividual band faders cannot somehow be locked in place, although there are very few problem in this world that cannot be solved with gaffer tape...

Boss GE-7
04.02.2015
This pedal I'd recommended to those simple EQ'd head amps. From the Blackstar HT Club Heads to the Marshall JCM 800 Heads, this is what you're looking for to change the tone of your amp in all sorts of ways, from scooping the mids, boosting the bass or boosting the treble. This is the pedal!

Versatile Unit
Mood44, 09.08.2019
Used to have this in my rig back in the 80s after a Boss Compressor and now in 2019 it's back again after a break of 15 years not playing guitar.
Versatile Unit to create tone or boost for a solo.

A must have!
LoïcM, 11.07.2013
Really easy to use and effective EQ.

As always with Boss, the pedal itself is strong and you can probably keep it for years.

It completely improves the sound, you can design it as you want. The changes in the EQ are accurate.

A really good pedal to have at the beginning of your effects chain.

BOSS GE-7
17.10.2014
BOSS GE-7 is a decent pedal if you want more control of your EQ, it's not as good as the graphic equalizers which are built in to amplifiers like Mesa Boogie Marks or Fryette Pittbulls. But it does the job fine. You can use it in front of the amp or in the effects loop if your amplifier has one. The seven band EQ gives you plenty of control. Personally I prefer to use it in the effects loop for a completely clean sound.

I didn't like it much with high gain because it induces a fair bit of noise and it's not transparent, it colors the sound a lot.

Quality is like all other BOSS pedals, it's built like a tank and will probably last for a lifetime.
