EQ in compressor side-chain

Wondering what's a good (and inexpensive) hardware eq for use as a compressor side-chain for DeEssing vocals?

I don't think it matters much, since no one will ever hear the EQ'd signal (except for the compressor's sidechain). Just go for something that allows you to eliminate as much as possible below your desired cutoff, and boost the shiznit out of the highs. If you're OTB, you could use a spare EQ on your console.
