Sorry to throw salt onto this interesting thread @RetroTeleRod. I depended on Boss pedals at one time, but as I honed my tones, I slowly eliminated them one by one from my board. Their buffer is excellent, so I had a difficult time eliminating my last Boss pedal. Great pedals in the 90s, but stuck in the past and they have been passed up by the golden era of pedaldom during the last decade. Gotta love that tanklike paddle though. Good luck to everyone with this challenge, but I don't know if I could name one Boss pedal to replace any of my nine now. Not even the TU or GE-7. I guess that means I failed the challenge.
