    can you guys give me some recommendations on some clean boost pedals that act as a buffer when turned off??

    i'm currently using an MI Audio Boost N' Buff that has a great buffer, but i'm not sure i like the high-end it adds at higher settings anymore....

    IF i could part with the money for a klon, i'd give it a try. any recommendations outside the klon are appreciated...

    thanks!

    I would recommend the Zvex SHO or Super Duper (assuming it's always on, since it is TB when off), but they also add a "high-end" presence to your sound. Although I haven't tried one (yet?), I've read a lot of good things about the Barber Launch Pad.

    Masotti Whitebox.

    It's their blackbox buffer with a clean boost. It really works!

    Thanks for the responses guys. I'm actually looking for a good clean boost pedal that acts as a buffer when the pedal is off.... I'll edit my original post...

    Just to clarify, that's exactly what the Baby Pink does. They are not carried as a stock item these days, or so I'm told, you need to order it before it's made. On the plus side, it's probably not back ordered like the HBOD etc. On the dowside, it's not exactly cheap either.

    The Durham Sex Drive has a buffered output (not true bypass) and sounds incredible to boot, IMO.

    Yep - that's exactly what the Moollon Signal Boost does. Fantastic buffer and best clean boost I've used in that it doesn't add color like many others do (RC, BnB, etc.). And the guys at Make 'n Music are great to deal with as well!

    awesome - thanks again guys.... i'll take a look at the moolon and the sex drive... the baby pink might be a tad pricey and i have a hard time being on wait lists!
