I know if I go down that road with the VII, despite how much more MORE it will be :love :chef :guiness :love :chef ;

MK VII mode with a boost in front would be INSANE :satan

Errr...
Ok, boosts are made to go with amps.
The Boogie MkVII, at least to my knowledge, is an amp.
So, the only logical conclusion would be: Boost running into MkVII.
That can't be difficult to understand, no?

And let's not even start to talk about more. Because we all know what more is.

Boo! I am trying to remove drives from the equation beyond what the amp has intrinsically!
 
I totally agree.
I don't don't like the sound of boosts and drive pedals in front tube distortion, unless the pedal creates 100% of the drive into a crystal clean amp and that's the sound I'm going for.

I'm the opposite I like a mix of amp gain and solid state pedal drive. I don't really ever use a crystal clean amp and find drive pedals can sound quite fizzy that way.
 
A curated boost into an amp that it's suited for it chef's kiss like a motherfucker. Unfortunately; I am trying to boil down the board and use the baked in amp gain of which there is a metric fuckton.
 
Yeah I like my pedals for studio use but all the writing and power supplies (I'm being dramatic but still) is a pain. Much easier to be all in box so I get it. But I love boosts lol
I ABSOLUTELY do as well. Hence me thread. I don't want to futz with more for live stuff at the moment so the dirt pedal pile is staying where it is as long as I can hold it off :nails:rofl

I know it doesn't apply to your situation but have you tried an amp with a built in boost? Always wondered how those fair.

Also, are any of your boost pedals battery powered? Could just have one boost no power supply?
