I think this is quite nice idea to expand your blues sound with this kind of pedals.
The BD-2 Blues Driver produces a bluesy vintage tube amp tone that blues players have adored since 1995, and it’s still one of the best-selling BOSS pedals today. The pedal’s tube-like response is due to the level of distortion being proportional to the picking strength. The CS-3 Compressor helps smooth out those blues licks while adding sustain, and the TR-2 Tremolo gives you the smooth pulsing heard on so many records, adding that extra dimension. The FRV-1 Reverb pedal was developed with Fender and using COSM technology, the BOSS engineers captured the beauty of the 1963 Fender 6G15 unit which was a favorite among blues players of the 60s and so an obvious choice for this rig.
