    Saw him playing live with Extreme and it looked like he was using a Boss GT8 for his tone.... And he has great tone. Does anyone know if he uses it for his drive? If not, could the GT8 get a similar tone?

    I dont see a lot about the GT100 in this forum lately. Is anyone using one for their tone live?

    I wouldnt be surprised if he is. I know he used to use boss effects in the past. Great guitarist who can make everything sound great

    He only uses it for Effects. not for amp tones.
    And speaking of him, he's about to go onstage right now on a family jam, in Hudson MA.. 13 Port Street, normally he uses his Randall gear, but for this jam there is an older H&K Triamp and a Marshall cab onstage.. :)

    He uses his Randall for gain. This is basically a Marshall and RAT all in one.

    He uses his Randall sig amp (the NB KING), PG era was ADA MP-1 for gain sounds.

    Nuno always gets great tone. The guy is a total monster.

    Well, the first time I heard a GT-8 in action is when I was playing with Neal Schon's son (Mile's) at a gig in Marin, Ca a few months back. He used it into a beat to heck Marshall JTM-40 (set clean), with a PRS P-22, and his tone was absolutely fantastic.

    Nuno uses one on tour with Rhianna.
    Look up the footage of her on SNL and you'll see it at his feet.

    I agree with everyone about Nuno, great player, great sound. 'm using a GT-100 but haven't yet integrated into my live rig yet, I just need to get some studio time in and do it. It's a great effects unit though by far the best i've had.:)
