    This one isn't buffered because it's passive. (No battery or power jack.) But I tested it with and without my SFX-01 before it. No difference in volume or "tone", so I'm thinking it manages not to load down the guitar.

    Bus pedals are much smaller.

    Are you referring to Volume pedals with Tuner outs in general or the Boss pedal?

    Interesting. I'll have to check that out. Thanks for that info.

    About the same, maybe a bit less, than my Twin Tube Classic. Must be aluminum.

    Just think, you could have bought it from Vertex and paid twice as much!

    A good volume pedal is really fun for swells and the like, and general control of volume.
