The THROTTLE BOX EQ™ combines the enhanced tone shaping power of our popular Boogie® Five-Band Graphic Equalizer with foot switchable HI/LO performance Modes and easy “Top Panel” access to the previously internal BOOST feature of the original THROTTLE BOX™.

The middle range of the GAIN control delivers overdrive tones that can cover everything from Blues to Modern Metal, depending on the selection of either LO or HI GAIN Modes. Cranking things up into the upper one-third of the GAIN control in HI mode unleashes a hot-rod that’s blistering with searing top-end harmonics.

For Hard Rock and Metal our Graphic EQ set to the popular mid-scooped “V-Curve” has over a four decade track record of creating the heaviest sounds around. With limitless curve possibilities, the Graphic expands the potential for sonic diversity across all styles as well as being able to unleash Mayhem.

Like the original, this expanded THROTTLE BOX includes two gain modes but are controlled by a HI/LO foot switch. There are also dedicated HI LEVEL and LO LEVEL Output controls, allowing you to set the desired volume level for each gain mode individually. The EQ can be assigned to either or both of these gain modes.  A MID CUT control allows global scooping of the mids in addition to whatever you might do with the graphic sliders.

The internally selectable BOOST switch hidden under the Bottom Plate on the original THROTTLE BOX appears on this EQ version as an easily accessible Top Panel BOOST switch for easy access to that extra dose of gain enhancement.
