1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Mostly I prefer the Guitar + Amp w/ reverb pedal (TC Hall of Fame) in the buffered effects look. Even having a pedal or two turned off seems to diminish my tone. From what I've read this has to do with capacitance. So I leave pedals out of my rig. However, I would like to be able to kick in a pedal from time to time, delay, tremolo, fuzz, dirt, while keeping them entirely out of the chain when I am not using them. I assume there must be a pedal I can put in front of my amp that will either send my signal directly to the amp or through an effects loop. It would even be nice to have a more than one loop. However--and this is critical--I want it to maintain the tone of Guitar + Amp when the effects loops are not in use. I assume it needs a buffer to do this. So what pedal am I looking for?

    Thanks TGP!
    :D
