My current setup is a blues breaker clone>Timmy>BoR>Monsterpiece NPN> m9 with the m9 set to dsp bypass. I got bored and set the m9 to true bypass and heard a significant drop in volume. When I took the blues breaker out of the chain, I got a little volume back but it was still below the original volume. I also have a cheap cable connecting my npn to my m9 which I intend to replace soon, so that might also be playing a part. Do you think I need buffer at the beginning of my chain or maybe just new cables?
