bear in mind that i'm still trying to suss out buffers, boosters, drivers, et al... i recently had the pleasure of plugging a lehle sunday driver between my guitar and my pedalboard. my signal was driven to the point that it sounded as if i were plugging straight into the amp without any tone suck. awesome. somewhere along the way, it was suggested to me to purchase a t1m buffer, so i ordered one from dan (EXCELLENT customer service, by the way!) and it was delivered today. unfortunately, no matter where i place it on my board, i'm not achieving the same effect as if i were using the sunday driver... not that i expected the SAME effect, but something similar. i did find this nugget of information: "As soon as you have a single Boss or other buffered pedal in the chain, the effect of the additional buffer is negated." here's my board - (b) buffered, (tb) true bypass: boss tu2 (b) -> rocktron triwah (b) dod big pig (b) boss pw2 (b) boss ce5 (b) toadworks texas flood (tb) boss hf3 (b) wampler slostortion (tb) gigfx pro chop (tb) boss ls2 (b) digitech whammy iv (b) hardwire dl8 (tb) joyo ultimate octave (tb) recovery sound destruction device (tb) morley pvo+ volume (n/a) hardwire sc2 (tb) boss dd5 (b) boss rv5 (b) -> amp. at some point, i intend to have my whammy modded for true bypass by molten voltage, and i want to order an area 51 wah, which is also true bypass. i'm wondering if i should hold onto the buffer, you know, just in case. thoughts?
