    a graphic eq usually has between 10 and 31 adjustable sliders per channel, each at a particular, fixed frequency. you have control over boost or cut, but no control over Q, or exact frequency.

    a parametric eq has just a few controls per channel, but you have complete control over boost (or cut), Q, and center frequency.
