“I am totally confused by the whole subject of buffers, either in pedals or as separate pedals by themselves. I lie awake at night wondering if I have too many or not enough, or if my sound would be better if they were different. The whole ‘buffer’ issue comes up a lot when talking about signal chains, especially with overdrive and fuzz. And then there’s true bypass – I thought true bypass was a good thing, only to hear that I might be experiencing a lot of tone loss if all my pedals are true bypass. In a word, help!
