Boss GT-3...Good for replicating Dave's tone?

I've heard some good things about the GT-3/6 effects processors from Boss but usually i'm a totally anti-processor kinda guitarist, but i figure if Boss makes it, it's got to be good.

Does anyone know if the effects that are bundled with that processor the actual Boss effects? I know this question sounds redundant but for example, if the processor has an Overdrive effect, would it be the Boss DS-1 effect?

I'm very seriously considering buying one but I would like some feedback.

Btw my goal is to replicate *as close as possible* the DSOT and PULSE tour tone/effects that Dave used. I'm aware that alot of his tone was "doctored" by the PA.

Thanks in advance.

-Taylor

It very well could be the actual Boss stomp-box effects but I'm not sure because I've never tried one. If you check out www.musiciansfriend.com or something like it, you can read product reviews and possibly find out. That'd be pretty sweet.

And by the way, the DS-1 is not an Overdrive pedal, it's a distortion pedal. Huuuge difference

lol yeah i mean't distortion. I don't really care for the DS-1 that much, but to each their own.

It sounds good with a tube amp and a nice warm guitar. It's usually the only distortion I use live.

That's very very true. It sounds not so great with a strat though.

I totally agree. I've been playing my LP primarily for about 2 years and then yesterday I played with my strat at band practice....what a difference! You don't really realize it until you go from playing one allthe time then switching.

Totally. A strat feels a lot more beautiful to play though. A Les Paul is just for rocking out. Most of the time anyways.

yeah, i can't get into any Hendrix/SRV/PF without a strat *as it should be * but the low end ballsy crunch of a vintage Les Paul running through a vintage tube amp comin out a marshall cab is pretty hard to beat. Definitely makes covering Zeppelin worth while
