Not a Reverb ramble, but a phenomenon I happened across while I was hunting down schematics for a BOSS SG-1 Slow Gear pedal:
I’m a huge BOSS fan, but even I would choke at the investment these mega-pedalboards must have demanded. Still, it would be fun to walk across the pedal patch to hear what ungodly tones came out of the amp. Did a Toyko trade show producer cook up this idea or did David Byrne? I vote for parallel development, compounded by how uniform and tank-tough the pedals are. If you’re going to literally walk on some stomp boxes, BOSS pedals are the ones to assemble.
