So, I have been a big fan of Vince Gill of late, specifically his guitar sound on "Don't Try This At Home" from the Players DVD he was a part of with Brent Mason, et al. After digging for a bit to figure out what that incredible tone was, turns out he was using almost all Boss pedals through Rivera amps. His distortion seemed to be two Boss OD-2 pedals. I have never been a big boss fan, preferring higher end pedals for their attention to voicing and tone (yeah, cork sniffing,) but as I complete what is about a 2 year run of trying a very large number of pedals, I discovered that if I had to build a pedal board from only boss pedals, I could and be happy with the tone, if I had to. This question crossed my mind because of Vince Gills sound and an interview Steve Vai gave about being able to get his sound using all boss pedals... If you could replace some of your key pedals with current production Boss variants, what would you do? While some of these are obvious, others surprised me - Here is how I would swap them out: ZenDrive - Boss BD-2 Fulltone OCD-Ge - Boss SD-2 (this surprised me) Guthrie Trapp OD (v1) - Boss OD-3 TC Alter Ego - Boss RV-6 (+Delay mode) MXR Phase 100 - Boss PH-3 Moog MF Trem - Boss TR-2 Ventura Vibe - N/A Digitech Nautila Chorus - Boss CE-2w (this was a recent switch to the nautila from a CE-2w for various reasons) 65 Amps Colour Fuzz - N/A Coppersound Foxcatcher - N/A (not aware of a Boss Bluesbreaker variant - they should do that) ------ Effects Steel String SRV - N/A (not sure there is an equivalent.) Would like to see how youd go all Boss, if you don't already.
