Ok I want to buy 2 effects, Chorus and Delay.
I think the pedals from Boss are better than a multiprocessor.

But I dont know, the bosse's are more expensive and the multi is cheaper but what's the best?
Money is no problem, well no problem ... the 2 pedals are no problem I'll say biggrin.gif.

Well, if you want the better sound definitely go for the individual Boss pedals.

The Boss DD-3 Delay and the Boss CE-5 Chorus.

EDIT: Also, single pedals are a lot easier to sell again in the future if you keep them in good condition.

I would say the individual Boss pedals are by far your best option ! smile.gif

Like everyone else said Boss ofcourse is the better maker and best quality,also the stompboxes are built like a tank while the zoom processor's are a very cheap thin plastic and effects are lacking in almost every setting.
If your not playing live or in a band and are on a low budget the Zoom is better than nothing.If you got it to spend and are seriously into gigging you would really want to go the Boss direction

Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

Pedals are your better option for sure, but be weary that in most clubs you don't even hear what a quality delay or chorus effects are. If you have the money, by the boss, if you don't by the zoom. You buy Zoom when you don't have the money and there's that old one: No pay - no play smile.gif
