Do I need a buffer pedal?

All of a sudden I've got a bunch of pedals - about six of them in from of amp. I'm running a 15 foot cable into a wah, then OD, delays, octave, etc, and then another 10 foot cable into the amp.

I don't really notice a loss in tone, but maybe my ears are fooling me. Should I consider a buffer pedal with this many pedals? If so, recommend some good ones, and reasonably priced :)

Thanks

It's not the pedals that drive the need for a buffer, it's the amount of cable (capacitance) tolling off the high frequencies.

If you have no issue with the tone then don't get a buffer.

Are all your pedals true bypass? Some of your pedals may already have buffers. You need to list exactly what pedal your using.
