I'm planning on getting a pedal board some time later this year; as one does, I've researched the matter and came down to two options.

A - Boss GT-8 http://www.bossus.com/index.asp?pg=1&tmp=147
B - Zoom G9.2 tt http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/products/g92tt/index.php

I know from experience that Boss pedals are reliable and never dissapoint, however they are expensive.
I also know that Zoom is a popular alternative because it is cheaper and some say has more effects (a friend of my brothers has one).

If any one has any personal experiences with either of these pedals that they'd like to let me in on go ahead.

P.S. plz don't tell me to go try them out at stores, I'll do that eventually.

Boss has no PC USB interface and sounds proccessed and the Zoom sounds like a generic multieffects pedal board. My other guitarist just sold his for a Fender Twin and stompboxes, which is the path I'd suggest you go for a true live sound.

hmmm...funny...I traded my Fender Twin for a Hot Rod Deluxe and a GT-8...

The GT-8 does't sound processed if you work with it. There are very great sounds in the GT-8, but don't expect to get them as soon as you plug it in. I had to change the way I thought about my amp and effects, but when I did, the Gt-8 yielded so much more than I could have found with the twin and the pedals I had, which were some pretty choice pieces of gear. The sound I had with the twin and pedals wasn't bad, it was just very limited. The Boss unit does not have a traditional USB interface, but you can download and upload patches and settings via MIDI to your computer if you need to. The interface is easy to use.

I've heard a lot of great stuff from the zoom unit though. Check out http://www.soundclick.com/bands/pagemusic.cfm?bandID=436524, this guy has a lot of sound clips of the zoom 9.2tt.
