Boss DS-1 settings

What do you Vai-aholics set your Boss DS-1's to? I'd like to try and get the best Vai sound possible.

cheers!

One must belong to Joe, and the other must be one he borrowed just to make his rig look more complicated.

That's his board for SBM. I didn't get a chance to ask why he was using it, but evidently something he played from SBM required double distortion

I DID get to ask him.....but stupid me, didn't ask about about the 2. That's actually one of his boards... the other one has a BF3 Flanger, a DD-3 and a DD-5, one of which he uses for like a minute.

Here's an exact transcription (Keeley fans, read the second question ):
---------------
Do you still use mainly Marshall and Boss pedals onstage?

I use very few pedals: a Dunlop wah wah, a Fulltone Ultimate Octave, Digitech Whammy pedal and a Boss DS-1, and thatís my number one pedalboard. The second board just has two Boss delays, of which I use only one, and the extra one gets used maybe one minute on the entire show, and I have a Boss Flanger unit, that I use for one song.

Do you get them modded?

No, I donít like the mods at all. I think the true bypass is kinf of unnnecesary, really, because the transition between turning the unit on and turning it off is too extreme. The unintentional beauty of non bypass is that once you pass through the pedal, you are more stable in sound. And once you go into another pedal, the gain structure is pumped up again, so I think even tough the sound maybe going down because youíre going into another pedal, it goes up again because it goes into another box. The worst thing you can do for a sound, is to have a really long cord, not the bypass in the pedals.
------------

btw.....my guess (just that, as I said, I didn't ask) is that one is set for the 7 string.

I disagree, the only difference between the 2 is about 15 minites on the Level, but it is definately plausible that's the reason. Having Mikey change a WH1 setting is one thing, where a parameter on his DS1 he might not want screwed with during the show

I really dig joe's music but his tone has been very lame since his first EP right on thru to 2k3. These DS-1 settings (and whatever he was trying to explain in the interview about the bypass) are something to read and ignore... glen

I'm kicking myself here! I should have contacted you BEFORE doing the interview to get some q's from you!
