EQ notching with a parametric EQ

I think much of the difference between various OD pedals is removed once you learn to remove offensive frequencies. People keep trying different pedals that will sound good with their rig, when it may not matter all that much which pedal they use if they get rid of the frequencies that bug them. Having said that, I am about ready to start adding pedals in front of my POD HD500x to get some variety beyond what's built in. ( Helix is still too much money )
