Boss GE-7 - are the new ones as noisy as the old ones? People used to switch out some caps and IC's to make them quieter, as I understand it. Is that necessary these days?

Also are the newer Boss GE-7's fully SMD these days??

Bonus question - Are there any other 7 band EQ pedals on the market that are much quieter than the Boss? I don't need tons of features.

I have a Boss EQ-200 but I want to move over to an analog EQ pedal.
 
I have a Monte Allums modded through hole GE-7, it's very quiet, I don't know about the new SMD GE-7 but I would not assume they use anything better than the general purpose (read: CHEAP) 4558/072 opamps everything else does.

The quietest analog EQ you can get today is the silver MXR M108S.
