I'm getting an almost illegal amount back on my taxes this year. It's time to upgrade my effects. Right now I'm only using a Boss CS3 Compressor, and a Boss TU2 Tuner. The other effects, tho quite lame, are built into the amp I'm using, a Marshall MG250 DFX (chourus, delay, flanger). I need more "voices" since I'm the guitarist in a three piece band doing Top 40 Country and classic rock. The compressor I have stays on on the time. I'm using the delay in the amp almost all the time. I'm not real keen on programable pedalboards because they seem too complex, and hard to use live. The single pedal theory is good, but a lot of expense in the long run. How do you other people feel? I'm looking at a Boss ME50, or just getting a few Boss Pedals and buying a empty pedalboard like a Furman, and just building one up. What works for you?
