    Always! Boss is great, loads of truly classic pedals in the Boss line. Im always using the GE7, NS2, and the SD1 (modded as well as unmodded).

    Yeah. Boss rules. The only annoyance is having to plug/unplug pedals when i want to go straight into the guitar amp without any buffer in-between

    I think my Digitech JamMan Solo is very well built too :)

    Same here, check the link in my sig. But dude, this is not how converting people is done. The normal way is, you get really famous, and then people start wondering what you use, and someone posts your board in a thread about rock star boards.

    Boss delay and modulation are good and usable.

    Dirt pedals not so much IMHO

    I have an AM modded MIJ SD-1 that totally disagrees with this statement. Kicked a lot of "awesome" pedals (per tgp) out of my house.

    Yeah. I have a keeley mod metal zone that I use when not playing through my Mesa for distortion . It's good. But if it's modded it's not a boss anymore to me.

    Hey...if you like what you're hearing, more power to ya! Too many folks buy with their eyes and hype than they do with their ears these days. Shoot, i'm trying to get my hands on a used Boss AC-3...that might be among some of the most blasphemous boss pedals on TGP! :aok

    My favourite overdrive is the Boss OD3. I think there's plenty of good choices from Boss and they're the worlds most famous boxes for a reason.

    GE-7, BD-2, TU-2 are on my board.
    The EQ pedal will never go off my board.

    I guess they're pretty reliable.. but I didn't really like/bond with any I've had (some modded). Different strokes for different folks.

    No man, you forgot the part where you pay pete cornish $1500 to make your boss-pedal ultra roadworthy and then it breaks down before your concert, with your techs unable to repair it and are instead forced to run out and buy a t-rex replica for you :rotflmao
