This pedal was made by Japanese effects company Maxon and was made in the late '70s to early '80s before the model GE-9 replaced it. The GE-601 is a simple 6 band graphic eq. It covers 5 octaves of frequency starting 100 Hz,200 Hz, 400 Hz, 800 Hz, 1.6 kHz & 3.2 kHz. Each band has its own slider that can boost or cut by 12 dB. The pedal also has an overall output level slider that is +/- 12 dB. The eq can fix feedback problems with an amplified acoustic, but it really shines as a clean boosting pedal at the end of an effects chain. The pedal has an amazing clarity that drives a tube amp just perfectly. I personally use it with a bit of low end & top end boost with the output slider at +6-9 dB for signal boost. The GE-601 gives a bit extra oomph that cuts through when soloing. A really well designed pedal that offers some other colors to your fuzz & dirt boxes. I would buy another in a heartbeat as a backup.
Good condition, works perfectly. Includes original box and manual.
