DOD FX7 Distortion vs BOSS DS-1 Distortion

The name says it all! Discuss Steve's studios, your studios and gear set-ups, amps and effects here. This is not for discussing guitars (Steve's or otherwise).

I currently have a DOD FX7 Grunge Distortion pedal. I've been playing For The Love Of God on it ever since I learned to play FTLOG. Do I need to buy a BOSS DS-1 pedal to achieve the same type of sound as Vai does on FTLOG or can I get this kind of sound with this PEDAL. Thanks.

if i remember the grunge pedal right (i used to play one years ago) you're not going to be able to nail the ftlog tone. the dod is too raunchy and harsh, the ds-1 is smoother. depending on amp and guitar set up and such though, this can vary. i dont even know if steve used the ds-1 while recording, i think he probably just cranked the amp
