Hello, I am looking to get a guitar tone similair to the tone that Boston had. Not looking to purchase anything though (rockman amp). I have a large Peavy Renown with 2 -12 inch speakers, a Boss Me-50, Epiphone Les Paul Ultra, and a Line 6 Spider II 30 watt. Thanks.

hahah this is funny ive been looking for a boston tone and asking for 2 months and i just said ill find one and i cant remember but i had it head on. something like a bass-3.5 mid-5.5 treb./hi-7 reverb 6 or so depending on what reverb you have access to,

I say throw on some chorus/reverb onto that lead tone.

Well you'll need a chorus echo combo. Boston's gear is fullrange. Without a little investment, you're not going to sound like them. oh, and use lots of mids!

Yes! Lots of mids, mids are your friends. And definately going to need some reverb and chorus.

Look at my sig. Thats pretty much it. They alo use fullrange cabs. Tom used power amps and got effects through the rockmodules.
