Can anybody discuss the differences in tones between these two? Are they essentially overlapping in many categories, but also unique in some others?
Mine sounds the best with the VOICING kind of high, and the TONE low, but I set it for max gain. My sweet spot if about 3:00 on the voicing, 9:00 on the tone (which is almost all the way off), full gain and volume just about unity+2. I guess they're all a little different. This is through my Aiken Sabre with the channel bright on, amp treble set to about 9:00. I don't like the darker tones it gets. Its a little too undefined with the voicing too low, at least through my rig.Originally posted by beachwail
Very cool. Thanks for the responses guys.
I'm looking forward to trying out the Blue boy (one on the way).
I really like my Zen for dark-ish tones, it sounds best with
the voicing not too high IMO.
I'd be interested to hear your findings. I kept the BB (w/LM833 chip) and sold my Mos 3-knobber - the BB sounded less constricted with my set-up.BillyK said:Interesting thread!
My Blue Boy has been in storage since my Zen and Mos arrived some time ago. I'll have to break it back out to compare.
One thing I do notice about both the Zen and Mos is the mid boost and a more "closed" tone. They sound great, but I definately hear these qualities. When stacked, the Mos and Zen provide the most insane bloom that I've never heard from other effects, stacked or not. Plus, they are QUIET when stacked - I still don't know how Alf does this!
I just so happened to order a bunch of new opamps last week to try in the BB, so I think the BB has been in the back of my mind. I'll report back with what I find.

At least I think that's the name I see scribbled on the front of that Boss pedal sitting on top of the Fender SR in the second picture.
Please tell us about the gig where those pictures were taken. Thanks!
