    Does anyone know what effect Simon Gallup uses in
    The Cure in Orange? Thanks, Ian.

  2. he uses Boss pedals.
    most of the songs in "the Cure in orange" have chorus. not sure of which pedal- did Boss have a specific Bass Chorus pedal in 1985?
    there's also a flanger on a couple of songs, and distortion on "a hundred years".
