Have BOSS killed the cable industry?

    I own several boss pedals and multi-effects units. I'm considering purchasing one of the new Blues Cubes. I haven't had cable in years. Coincidence?

    Never owned a BOSS box. I was literally going to order a CS-3 today but my amp blew up. Now I'm thinking I'll wait until I see if I can fix this or buy another.

    I don't own a Boss pedal or amp. But, I do have cable.

    This thread checks out.

    I have a Boss speaker cable. Or maybe it's Roland. Either way, it's the best. You're all beneath me.

    Please check out my blog.

    I have as many Boss pedals as I have cables.

    I'm confused...

    Boss pedals are like cable TV.

    They're old standards like All in the Family or MASH or Ren & Stimpy.

    Now that you mention it, I also don't have cable and I own a Boss pedal. Do you think they may also be responsible for the death of landline telephones? I don't have that either.

    call comcast and you wont need repairs. For 80mo they promise 75-100mps download and deliver 15-20. So you can see comcast cable internet works as well as your busted amp.

    Since I still have cable TV and a land line, no cell phone, and no Boss pedals, I guess I'm proof of your supposition. I have been thinking of buying an SD1, since it's been so many years since I've had one, to see how it compares to all my other overdrives.
    But, I'm now worried. If I do get one, will my cable and land line stop working?

    Boss is actually Skynet. It will kill the entire guitar industry and all guitarists.

    BOSS pedals: you only pay once for the exact effect you want, instead of monthly for hundreds of effects you'll never use.

    Cable could learn a lot from BOSS...

    I like this, no need to buy cable to hold the door, just use old Boss door stoppers
