I've seen Carlos a number of times, sometimes in fairly informal circumstances and I've never noticed him to be dependent on any kind of FX. Not to say that he doesn't use them occasionally, but no box or combination of boxes is ever going to get you "the Santana sound".

You'd have to be able to play like him and to do that you'd probably need to feel like him when he plays. He plays emotionally, doesn't strike me as being a particularly technical dude.
