Boss GE-7

Sorry we are sold out of new previous version GE-7 which we can modify. We sometimes have a used one in excellent shape in stock, if you can add to the cart we have one for you. We also have the new guitar and bass versions in stock, but not modified.

The GE-7 has seven bands ranging from 100Hz to 6.4kHz, ideal for tweaking guitar sounds, with boost/cut of +/- 15dB per band. This lets you completely control your sound and eliminate unwanted feedback, particularly when connected after a distortion effect.

The Pro mod is designed to improve clarity and lower the noise issues that the stock GE-7's have. This is accomplished by upgrading the IC chips and tone capacitors. We replace the cheap stock tone capacitors with high quality film capacitors like we use in the rest of our effects. This improves the overall clarity of the pedal.

VOLTAGE : The stock GE-7 can not be run over 15V. We modify it so it will run
fine from 9V up to 18V. Higher voltage which will give even more clarity and headroom to the pedal.

The stock GE-7 can add some noise if you move the sliders away from center. Even bringing the two lowest sliders DOWN will add noise, try it! Our mod replaces three chips with the King of Tone chip, which is a low noise chip designed for tone controls so it's perfect in this application. These chips take about 40% more power (pedal goes from 16mA to 23mA), so a battery will not
last as long, better to use a power supply. A normal alkaline battery will still last over 15 hours, so you can use batteries if you want.

We also change a bunch of cheap capacitors used for tone control to high grade metal film caps. This lowers noise and improves tone. Thanks to the people on the diystompboxes forum who posted info on modding this pedal. We used their ideas and tweaked it a bit with our favorite parts to make it the best sound for the price. We can modify the old or new GE-7 pedals or sell you a new one with our mod, plus optional LED change.

New for 2012, GEB-7 Bass version mods!

We can now offer the mods on the older version GEB-7 Bass version. Same price, same improved tone and lower noise.

New 2020 and later versions we cannot modify

In late 2020 Boss started making these cheaper in Malaysia, using tiny surface mount parts, which we cannot replace with the high quality through-hole parts. The ones we can modify are usually made in Taiwan (see back plate). Best to take the back plate off and check:

5 of 5 Ridiculously Powerful Tool October 19, 2020
Reviewer: Avery Watson from Austin, TX United States  
I, like many, was turned onto using the GE-7 by Tom Bukovac.  Analogman's mod is incredible! Operates MUCH more quietly than the unmodded version.  I primarily use it as a sculpted boost for leads, which sounds amazing!  But I have used it to thicken thin sounds, dial out weird/unpleasant frequencies, and to clear up darker pickups.

This has become an irreplaceable part of my rig.  Thanks, Tom! But, more importantly, thank you, Mike!! What an awesome pedal!!

5 of 5 Perfect. July 12, 2020
Reviewer: Dan Flaherty from MA  
Analogman GE-7 pro mod is fantastic, it takes an old sleeper pedal and transforms it to a proper work horse. It’s 100% silent and has great headroom while using 18V. Works great for the DG stuff, after a Tube Driver or Cornish pedals. Thanks Mike.

5 of 5 Analogman GE7 November 4, 2019
Reviewer: Dave Miley from Clute, TX United States  
This is just what my pedal board needed !  I use it to add girth and clarity or nail the exact over all tone I need on my OD/Distortion pedals as well as just my basic guitar tone going into an amp. It is easy to dial in . Also very  quiet and totally invisible when not engaged . No tone suck at all !  I will be purchasing another in the near future as this is  a "must have " for any of my guitar rigs !

5 of 5 Analogman nailed it with this mod December 23, 2012
Reviewer: R. B. Smith from Denver, CO United States  
I received my Boss GE-7 with a pro mod two days ago.  I've been A/Bing against my unmodified GE-7 to be sure what I'm hearing is real.  

The only way I can describe the difference is Analogman nailed it with this mod.  I ordered the modded version after struggling with this pedal for over a year.  I'm a bit of an audiophile and I could hear the inherent possibility of what the GE-7 "could" do but couldn't align my suspicion with what it "would" do.  The Analogman mod unlocks the potential of this pedal.  

If you don't have this pedal on your board, you should.  Different rooms and different studios will make your guitar, your amp, your pedals, even your entire signal path sound differently.  The GE-7 - with the Analogman mod - allows you tweak your sound to the room or studio's acoustics and truly shine.

Worth every penny and then some.  Nice work, Analogman.  I'm very grateful for what you've brought to my sound.
