The Sea Blue EQ is a clear warm tubelike treble/bass booster – the EQ controls do go +/- and it is built in such a way that if pushed hard, it will distort in a pleasant way much like an expensive tube EQ would. It is also said to have an overall warming clarity that improves the fidelity of all distortions.

This pedal is handmade in St. Louis and comes to us from Bare Foot Guitar Effects. There are a few choices to be made aesthetically with this one. You can go with either a stock paint job or a custom one that features a cartoon drawing of a sea animal (see below). This pedal’s claim to enhance any distortion intrigues me. I’d like to give it a go. – Gus Green
