    I'm curious to know who owns this and whether it's truly better vs. other buffers (as Analogman claims). I'm in need of a buffer at the beginning of my chain, as all 8 of the pedals on my board are true-bypass. Until now, I've had a JHS-modded Ernie Ball Volume pedal, but I don't ever use it, except for its buffer. So I figure I could save some board space and buy a dedicated buffer.

    I have the Analogman buffer with an always-on tuner out and mute switch. Works great, but I don't know that it's "better" than others. No pixie dust or anything like that. Solid buy-and-forget kind of pedal.

    I found it better than my tu-2 in one very noticeable way, my tu-s wrecked the sound of my treble booster into a drive pedal when the tu-2 was placed between them, the analogman buffer doesn't mess with anything it just works perfectly. I would try and describe it better but it has been a couple years since i have had to think about buffers.

    I should have mentioned that I was coming from a Lehle Sunday Driver, which also is a very highly regarded buffer. Stupidly sold it. My opinion is skewed accordingly.
