I do enjoy my Zoom but I'm not getting the tone I really desire out of it, do you think a pedal board would be a better alternative?
It may be mildly safer for the gear to be contained in one rack unit, but if you're not getting the tone you want then what good is safety? I rack some items (Compressor, Tuner) and have a pedalboard for the rest.
The effects forum is a much better place to ask specific questions about effects. As a general rule, buying individual pedals will be easier to find the exact tone you're looking for in that particular format, but more expensive, and arguably less convenient than a multi-effect unit.
