Is this now down to RE's to provide this kind of EQ feature or could you consider improving on the classic 9000?
A shelving option would be another nice addition to go with the bell curves.
Try the "E" mode - but also know that super narrow boosts can sound most un-musical.

Other than for special FX there's not much application for a narrow boost with typical mixing. Now if you need to "fix" something, it may come in handy but there may be better solutions IMO. But you're talking to someone who just finished mixing a project using only Pultec EQs, which are probably the farthest from offering anything approaching a "narrow" Q. ;-)

What do you use narrow EQ boosts for typically? :-)
