Short take: a Good pedalboard EQ. Forget the second amp output. This box has been in and out of my gigging pedalboard for the past 5 years. I got it to fine-tune my rig to the room. I play rock. Its tough metal case has a respectable heft, and the black wrinkle finish looks good (I could have done without the "tribal" graphics; some may go for that sort of thing so each to his/her own.) The red lights on its ten EQ sliders add a great visual touch to a pedalboard. When the stage lights are low, it looks killer! It's front-mounted jacks are welcome in a stuffed board; they are well-made. The slide controls feel good; not cheap. The Input/Output Gain and EQ sliders are rather exposed, so I wouldn't carry it loose in a gig bag for fear of crushing a slide potentiometer. Mount it solidly in a covered hard pedalboard or other protected case. The sound? 18 Volts, so it has a lot of headroom. Great for shaping clean sounds. Too noisy for shaping distorted tones due to excessive hiss. (Any diehard Kerry King fan is gonna be using mega distortion, so why this cost-cut in parts beats me.) This hiss is more pronounced if it's being used to boost instead of cut. The second amp output? Useless due to ground loop hum. This unit does NOT have transformer-isolated outputs! And there is no getting around that requirement if you're gonna "punish two amps at once" without ground-loop hum. If they ditched the useless second amp output for a better signal/noise ratio, I would easily give it 5 stars. But still, it shapes tone well, is sturdy, and has bling. It may be hard to find a better eq that fits in a pedalboard unless you go the boutique route.
I've had this pedal for a year now and the only issue I have is that it creates quite a hiss when it's on. Which is sort of expected. Not too bad though. Nothing any noise compressor shouldn't be able to control. Ten bands of screaming bright highs and thick rumbling lows. Whatever tone you want, it's in there. Stereo outputs perfect for stage performance and recording. My recommendations for this pedal would be the MXR super comp. Having the EQ on the left and the comp on the right. Those two go great together and I never turn them off. While I admit that this is the only EQ I've ever owned. I can honestly say it's probably the only one I'll ever need. Then again, I may just be that dedicated to MXR.
I use the KFK for my rhythm when I am playing and it does it all. It tightens up my sound, gives a little boost in gain if I set it right, and gets rid of the muddiness. The first time I used it I was schocked. It's also built like a tank. I don't think that it will ever die.
I bought one of these to help clear up my clean tone, and a little bite to my distortion. Not only did it do that, it beefed it up a bit. Im still toying with it too!!! I use it mainly with my Jackson( with Duncan Sh-6's and a JB Jr.) and PRS (Allender stock) I actually had to turn the bass on my amp almost all the way down. It took care of my muddy stock sound. This is a sweet EQ. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to take a little more control of your tone. Next to my NS-2, this is probably the best investment I've made for my tone.
This is probably the best equalizer pedal on the market right now. With its sleek tribal graphics and light up bands, the MXR Kerry King EQ is no doubt the coolest looking EQ on the market. It has 10 bands of 12db cut or boost, ranging from 33.25hz to 16khz. This is a good range to shape your tone, which this stompbox does amazingly. If you thought your amps highs, mids and lows were good then you will be blown away by this. Another advantage is the dual outputs. Many touring guitarists have 2 amps or amp heads. With the Kerry King EQ Pedal, all you have to do to switch amps is turn one on and the other off! It's like a channel switcher also. This is a pedal for all genres, and not one to pass by. Plus, it's nearly bulletproof and comes with an 18-volt power supply. There is some competition, though. The Boss 8-band EQ pedal has 3 midrange bands, and goes up to 64khz instead of 16khz. Also, you can get the MXR normal 10-band EQ. It's basically the same thing without the graphic and second output.
When I press the on the pedal, the difference is very noticable. The sound becomes of greater tone and quality with it on and works great with acoustic guitars. I use it along with distortion sometimes but mainly with my acoustic guitar because it just makes it sound much fuller. Not only is the sound great but the pedal looks cool as well.
