What's your favorite lunchbox 500 EQ?

What can you guys recommend for a live solo piano situation? I'm really interested in a Xfilter, but not sure if there are any other choices in this price class. Don't want to pay more than a Xfilter.

Maag Eqs are magical. Just got an Ocean Audio Eq and I love it! very versatile. Inexpensive and autographed by Malcom Toft himself. Chandler Little Devil Eqs are also in a league of their own. API eqs will still never go out of style either.

Hey Nathan, have you tried the Ocean Audio EQs? as close to Trident EQs you might get since Malcom Toft now owns this company

Yes! I decided to buy 2x Chandler Little Devil Eq, 2x Maag Eq2 and 2x API 565 (and maybe 2x Kush Clariphonic 500 in a second time..) it seems to be a really great combo ^^

The Chop Shop presents a unique approach to EQ'ing, but make no mistake about it--it's definitely an EQ. I believe it's one that gives you the ability to dial up mix-relevant tonal curves in very few knob tweaks. It specifically does things that most other EQ's don't offer. For instance, the Focus knob lets you quickly shift the tonal "focus" of a sound from bass to treble by turning one knob. I find this really valuable for tracking things like guitars and vocals where sometimes my mic placement leaves a little bit to be desired and I get too much proximity effect or need more presence out of ribbon mic (really nice on acoustic guitar by the way). The Bump lets me put some oomph on things like kick or bass while simultaneously clearing up subsonic mud. I've been gettting good mileage out of the Hi-Cut for putting that “ripping out of the speaker” bite on distorted guitars while making room for cymbals and vocal air. There's usually two or three going on behind the scenes of each section. This allows the music making process to be more artistic and less technical. And that just makes recording more fun.

Talljoe--did you get yours yet?

I did! They look nice in the rack. And the lights are plenty blue. As for how it sounds? I'll find out when we fill up the new studio this weekend. See attached image. BTW, that empty space? Electras.
