    Re: I dont mean to start something but....

    Sort of go through the same thing. In my case it's Paul Cochrane's Timmy that I always go back to and then wonder why I switched to begin with.

In between doesn't really matter unless you're stringing together dozens of pedals. Mind you, personal experience is the older Boss pedals from Japan and the early Taiwanese ones have better buffers than newer ones (except maybe the Waza models). There are definitely better buffers out there than Boss's though. If you don't have a decent one built into a pedal, consider a standalone one.

      All TB with zero buffers will hurt tone just as badly as having all buffered pedals with an ok or poor quality buffer. ...of course, if you only have a few pedals, all TB may be fine.
      Does'nt affect me..I'm not really into using lots of pedals. Don't have a pedalboard.. so a couple of them (delay/reverb) in the loop is all I need. The Boss's were'nt sucking tone, I just found I hardly ever used them. The only pedals I really care about are distortion/drive pedals & harmonizer's & I tend to not actually use those much after I buy them ..prefer plugging straight into the front of my amp(s) for my sound.

      Then I discovered Nux pedals (TC Electronic clones/$30-50 or so..) and they replaced the Boss delays/reverb's and stuff...so it's all fine now..I'm nicely set up

        Being able to play the amp is often more important than the amp itself

        Same with the pedal…

        If it works it works!

          Yeah, if you only connect a couple pedals at a time, you probably don't need the buffers. Someone like me with lots of pedals needs them.

          I've been curious of the Nux pedals myself. Other than a good Rat style pedal and maybe a big muff and fuzz face, I'm pretty much done with my pedal collecting (I have enough OD and Distortions to get almost any sound I want); but I'm interested in getting a few more modulation effects and reverbs and maybe a looper of some sort (I have all the delays I need until an affordable Tap delay comes along).

          My plan now is to set up small, purpose built pedal boards along with one larger board that is pretty much a general purpose board that can get a few different sounds.

            If I sold everything that I couldn't use as my "everyday" sound I wouldn't own anything!

            Because nothing satisfies me enough that I don't need to take a break from using it for it for a while and then come back with fresh ears after a few months and so I can like it all over again.
