     Sorry, I should have clarified what I'm looking for.  My studio sound 
is pristine.  The
ceiling height (9'3") of the room emphasizes the frequency B an octave 
below middle C (61 Hz).  Is
a graphic EQ going to fix this easily without messing up the overall 
quality of the sound or am I
better off with a parametric notch filter?  And will that degrade the 
overall sound if I just use
it to kill that particular room resonance?

     Of course having a usable EQ is a good thing for gigs, that would be 
a secondary benefit.  My
first priority is fixing this boomy resonance.  $140 for a parametric is a 
lot cheaper than doing
some sort of room baffle modification.

     I have not A/B'd them properly, though my ear tells me that they are 
in vastly different

     Thanks for the help,
