Theres a lot of reasons why I ask the Q question. Many of peoples favorite Vintage (and New) EQ's had fixed Q's. They couldnt mess things up with a too narrow "resonancy" Q (bandwidth). ALso, I cant remember specifically ever using a super super narrow Q and have a source sound natural or even good.

Conversely, I dont think I ever used a BW really really wide unless I was trying to achieve a shelving affect. SOooo Im wondering what is really practical, and what makes the controls too touchy. I often think I could have lived with 3 or 4 well chosen Q settings. Eight isnt too bad tho.
