So every time I saw someone mention that non-TBP pedals suck tone, Boss pedals suck tone, etc etc, I blew it off. Not because I didn't believe it, but because I figured, I only use three pedals, one's TBP, another is buffered (Boss, only one shouldn't be a problem, right?) and the last one- well, it's a non-tbp wah, but come on, one non-tbp and one buffered pedal? And anyway, that's all nitpicky audiophile hearsay anyway. I recently took everything out except my Java Boost (tbp, on all the time anyway.) SWEET LORD! That's where all the tone went. Apparently two non-tbp pedals is enough to make a very noticeable difference in sound. This is probably old news to most of you, and I am sure many of you are shaking your heads, wondering why it took me so long. Sorry. So this is a PSA, just in case you're in the same spot I was in a couple of hours ago: Non-TBP pedals are tone roach motels. Tone goes in...and never comes out. That is all. Anyone want a boss compressor or a 535Q?
