It has controls, switches, ac & battery powered. It's a Boss effects pedal. They've sold 100 billion of them, so most of you reading this probably have one and can imagine what it looks like.
Sound quality is good, and because it's an eq pedal you can change the sound an awful lot!
Easy to use, but because of the nature of the product it can take some fiddling before you get the 'sound' you want. But excellent though, does exactly what it is supposed to do.
I've tried out other brands and I have always come back to Boss. This is a great pedal for shaping your sound. You can find a sound you like and just leave it on or use it to change you tone on the fly. This is a great pedal.

Seven band EQ using 7 sliders and one slider for level. 9volt batt with a plug for a power cord(recommended).
This pedal is a nice EQ, great for the money. You can change the sound and tone for your bass up alot with this pedal. Subtle changes in the sliders works best.
Move the slider up and down and change the tone, not too hard. It may take a little working with it but you will fine the sound you want.

7 band equaliser INPUT Jack, OUTPUT Jack, AC Adaptor Jack (DC 9 V).
I mostly play rock music.I use a Fender Precesion, a G&L L-2000 and a Rickenbacker 4003 with this pedal. All sound great through it. Pedal is ideal for this type of music.
Very simple to use. Low eq at one end, high at the other. Just find your sound by fiddling with the sliders.
ITS A BOSS PEOPLE! Cant be faulted in this area!
If you think you my be hindered by having only 3 or 4 eq knobs on your amp, you are right. I felt the same way, and when I got this, I couldn't believe how I played without one. Everyone should have a graphic eq of some sort to have complete control over one's tone. No other piece of equipment is able to change your tone as much as this can.

A typical type of boss stomp box, it has 7 sliders for 50, 120, 400, 500, 800, 4.5k and 10k Hz. When turned on, the eq activates without any noise. Same when turned off, there is no noise. It also has a slider for the level, in case the volume levels happen to be different when on or off, you can adjust accordingly.
The quality of this is top notch. The selection of frequencies is perfect. The sliders are very accurate. When everything is flat, and you activate the pedal, there is absolutely no change at all in sound. The gain for each frequency is + or - 15 dB. If I had to choose only one pedal to use, it would be this.
It could not be easier. Just slide the sliders to where you want them, and stomp the pedal to activate it. Nothing else to it. Finding your own tone is a different thing, just depends on how knowledgable you are with eq's.
The only thing to caution is the sliders. If you go nuts on stage and jump on the pedal, you might accidently adjust the sliders, but that is the case with any pedal out there, so just don't be a moron. Otherwise, it is perfect.
It's amazing how much the sound quality of any bass can be improved with this unit. It's very adjstable and serves it's one purpose well.

7-band eqalizer and level control. Runs on a 9V battery or adaptor.
Any bass I've run through this unit sounds far better. I genreally run an Ibanez or Carvin through it and some other effects into a Peavey or Sam Ash amp with a compressor going through the effects loop (direct with the Sam Ash). Good for any style, no noise, can be used to shape a large variety of tones.
Works just like any equalizer, but with a bypass footswitch. Very easy to use.
It's a Boss, so in other words, I could crack your skull open with it many times over without chipping the paint.
This is a must have pedal for every bassist.

8 Slide Switches let you control a 7 channel equalizer and a master volume control.
AC and Battery powered.
Noiseless, excellent dynamic range for frequency cut/boost. It makes a passive electronics bass, sound excellent with flexiblity in tonality.
Easy to use but takes some time to tweak it to suit your tastes.
This is one pedal I always have on. You should always have at least an EQ on your amp or as a pedal and a compressor. Higly recommended.

Has seven bands made for bass. Runs on batteries or on an AC. Pretty much a typical equalizer.
The equalizer can dial up lots of tones. There hasn't been a tone that I haven't been able to dial up yet. It can get noisy if you crank everything up, but that obviously isn't what its for. Its so you can sculpt your sound. I use it an the end of my effect chain so I can sculpt the final sound before it goes into the bass.
Pretty easy to use, But it takes some fiddling to find the tone you want. Any musician should be able to an EQ.
I simply love this pedal, it has allowed me to "fix" my cheap PA. Also, I can define all the different styles I play. I can acheive a great pop, and keep a good rumble on the low side when slapping octaves, cut the low frequency and mid frequency and get a clear melodic sound. Every bass player should at least try out this pedal if you cant afford a pricey rack mounted EQ.

7 band EQ, it covers the mid frequency very well,
+/- 15 boost, the pedal looks just like all the other Boss pedals.
Currently Im using this with a cheap no-name brand PA, the problem with the PA is that it distorts when turned up, due to my bass's low Frequency. By cutting the low frequency I have totally eliminated the distortion from the PA. I play in a stlye including melodic finger picking, slap, and up beat scale style, this eq pedal has allowed me to change the sound to match each stlye in a unique way. IF you turn up the bass to much my cheap PA turns right back to over distorting and buzzing, but I have used this to my advsntage, because I no longer need to buy a bass overdrive pedal!
A very user friendly pedal, its easy to tinker around with cutting and boosting levels.
As a Boss pedal, this thing would survive a car wreck, it doubles as something to pelt at your cat
I bought this pedal before I installed new pickups on my Epiphone to try and better the tone. It did what I needed it to do and now that the new pickups are in, I don't use it as much.

The GEB-7 comes with a 7-band EQ (7 sliders) that allow you to shape your sound to your desire.
I have it running on a 9-volt battery but it can also run off AC power. It's an EQ-how features can you expect with this pedal?
I use this with my Epiphone Rock Bass and My Yamaha 4-String Fretless. I like to play a lot of slapping and tapping so I am easily able to make the high-end of the bass stand out. My only problems with this unit are that it can become noisy if you boost the levels too much and the sound can become distorted if the battery is too low on power.
You can make a variety of sounds with this pedal. The instruction manual included shows you some sample settings to get started and even has space in the back for you to write down your own settings for future reference. I would like to get a bass sansamp to replace the tonal qualities of this pedal.
Boss pedals are made out of metal and they are tough. You can beat the hell out of them and they will always still work.
