Hi All

I am using a Boss GE7 Equilizer in front of a cranked JVM head, pretty straightworward I thought, but it is totally noisy. As pre-amp equalization is pretty important, I wonder that is happening. Is it just this one or should I look for some other product?
Cheers, Heiko

Check so the dB-"boost" on it if it's set to mid position. If it's boosting the signal I could very well belive it's noisy.

Or try putting it in the fx loop and se if that makes it more quiet.

I personally really dislike stompbox Eqs, they all kinda add this buzz, and don't really help shape my sound either.

Also check if batteries are running low or if you have proper ac power..I would suggest always running stompboxes on batteries in order for them to be as quiet as possible.

Probably the most likely error that Bogdan states. That you run on a adaptor instead of battery (or that the batt has gone bad)

Effects loop or as Bogdan says the power might be creating buzz. Don't really know what type of noise it is. Is it a hissing or buzzing noise?
