A big reason why a lot of touring guys choose to go with something like all Boss stuff is that if anything goes missing or stops working it can be replaced at any Guitar Center the next day. That and at least as far as Boss goes, they're built like tanks. I've had the same Boss SD-1 I bought used 15 years ago on my board since I got it and it shows no signs of slowing down. I remember watching the Lucero Rig Rundown and that was the basic theory behind the entire setup. "We make our living on the road, and if anything we have goes out we can get a new one tomorrow."
