    I'm looking for a booster pedal to place at the end of my signal chain that I can use for a lead/solo boost, but that also acts as a line buffer when it's OFF. I'm not looking for a single knob booster where you turn the knob down and just leave it "on" all the time, because that's not helpful. I want to be able to turn it on for the volume boost for a solo. That's why I need a pedal that still buffs when it's "off." Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Mi Audio Boost and Buff is this very thing. I've been using one for 4-5 years. Good pedal.

    I have a Bearfoot Baby Pink Booster which is an amazing buffer also.

    Cusack More Louder.
    Excellent switchable buffer.
    Very clean full range boost.
    Grammatically correct to boot.

    Durham Sexdrive is buffered, I believe?
    Crowther Hotcake if the amp is mid focused.

    Boss GE7. You could leave all the bands at 0dB and boost the overall level.
