    or
    MXR 6 band : http://www.music123.com/MXR-6-Band-Equalizer-i232674.music

    Actually all your guitar related frequencies are covered in trhe 6 band.
    the 10 band EQ pedal has some useless low and high frenquency controls that don't have much impact on the guitar tone.

    Basically, 100 Hz to 6000 Hz is your range of interest while shaping teh guitar tone.

    You can also get the extremely VFM 7 band Behringer DEQ here I think.

    Good, if possible, lap up the Behringer, usually Behringers are cheap versions of Boss pedals. :)
    And they get the thing done too :)

    lol, not sure if that would work though.

    Amp EQ settings vary depending on guitar, pickups etc.

    And oh don't ever use anything that says Metal to get the souped-up warm Marshall tone (basically the Slash tone you are looking for).

    nothing beats turning the knobs yourself.
    keep the drive setting to distortion though.
    also use the tone knobs of your guitar

    Dude, you gotta find it out yourself, or someone has to be physically present to help you with it.

    On the other hand, what you can do is record somestuff, and compare the tone to Slash. If you find it difficult, you can post it here. Ppl can comment whether they find it similar, or if it requires certain tweaks.

    But ofcourse, for doing that you should have a good quality mic (not the usual computer ones), a good mic that covers the whole frequency spectrum.
    The cheap microphones impart a telephonic quality to the tone, which doesn't really reflect the tru tone you are getting from the amp.
