Bring Back The Buffer.  Like many guitarists, I got caught up in the "True Bypass" pedal craze in the early 2000s. I would not touch a pedal that wasn't true bypass. In principal True Bypass pedals are great. When off, the circuit is completely removed from the signal chain, and not "coloring" your sound. But too many True Bypass pedals can color your sound in another way. If your signal runs through a 15' cable into your pedal board, through your pedal chain, then back to the amp via another 15' cable, you're running through a lot of copper. Long cable run loads down your signal, at the expense of high frequencies. I was shocked at what a difference adding a good buffer at the beginning and end of my pedal change did for my tone. My brightness was back! I had been EQing my amp to account for the loss of highs without knowing it. Suddenly with the buffer, it sounded as good as it does when plugged directly into the amp! Not all buffers are created equal. Examples of pedals with good buffers are the Boss TU3 tuner and the Ibanez Tube Screamer. There are several companies now offering stand-alone buffers as well. Do yourself and your tone a favor, and use a buffer.  - Eric. R   5/4/2017
