haze015 Posted December 15, 2016 Author Share Posted December 15, 2016 Not strictly true. The majority of commercial graphic eq pedals use a series of bandpass filters, with fixed centre frequencies and resonance. They are terrible in terms of phase shift where the frequency bands overlap. With a guitar it's not that notocable but for high end audio it's unacceptable. That's why they're uncommon in modern studios, usually reserved for specialist applications like kick drum eq. Whilst true, how an EQ uses bandpass filters is different to a bandpass filter. Unless able to mute all except one on a graphic EQ pedal it won't achieve the same as a bandpass wah/filter, nor is there control over the frequencies. Although it is possible to get something close with one, it certainly shouldn't be chosen over a wah/auto-wah/filter unless its all that is available.
