As a fairly new bass player, recently I bit the bullet and upgraded my gear to a nice 4x10 stack with svt pro 7 and bought my first bass pedal from Boss (DS-1 distortion) I see a ton of different brands being discussed and people mixing and matching their pedals, and haven't' seen anyone strictly using just one brand of effects pedals. So with that, I'm curious if there is something wrong with buying just Boss pedals, as I really like my DS-1 and want to add more Boss pedals. I understand pricing is important to most people, but to me, I kind of like the way Boss makes their pedals almost identical to each other (with color change to know which pedal is which) and I think that money isn't important, and would spend more to get all the same brand/look, compared to a cheaper alternative that isn't the same brand. Basically my question is, do people mix and match because Boss has only a few good pedals, but others are better? lets say my next pedal I want is the CEB-3 (chorus). Would people tell me to steer clear of it just because they think another brand is significantly better and that it would be smarter to mix, than to match. I feel like any change I can make to my sound is "better" than anything I have currently, so is it really worth changing out a brand of pedal because it is that much better than said brand over looks? Hope this makes sense, and sorry if this has been discussed before. Thanks!
