My equipment is:
Boss bd2, Vox wah, Behringer um300
my amp is a roland cube, not the best but decent.
I want to get more boost when I play solos, by turning on one of the pedals, but I don't know how, and since I think that a compressor could be useful to get closer to the legendary malmsteen/joe satriani/steve vai tone (correct me if I am wrong), I thought that maybe I could use the compressor to get more boost for solos.
basically my 3 questions are: will a compressor like the boss cs3 help me to get closer to this amazing tone? could a compressor be useful to get more boost? How can I set my amp and my pedals to get more boost when I turn on the pedal for solos?
