    I have a fairly large pedalboard of about 10 pedals. As I understand, a buffer will help prevent signal loss. Here is what you need to know:

    From guitar > first pedal, I use a 12' cable.

    First cable is the Turbo Tuner (true bypass), followed by the Rockett Archer (buffered). The last pedal in the chain is the Wet Reverb (Stereo, version 1) which I also believe is buffered.

    Prior to putting the buffered Archer on the board, the first pedal was a dedicated mini buffer, followed by the Turbo Tuner. Since I now have the Archer early on in my chain, do I need the dedicated buffer? I'm inclined to think not. Looking for your opinions though.

    Thanks.

    No, the additional buffer would be largely redundant.

    No buffer necessary

    Nope, one in the beginning and one at the end should suffice.
