So much money for a buffer...? Well, it's worth it!
NiandraLaDes, 12.05.2014
I think every guitarist have some up and downs with its pedalboard. You will be NEVER done with it trust me hehehe

After putting my favorite pedals on a Pedaltrain I was really satisfied but the meters of patch cables have stolen some highs - and even my fiancee realized a change in my sound. It wasn't really lifeless but you noticed it. So...what to do? Buy an expensive Lehle Cable Driver? No. I searched a bit and found the Visual Sounds Pure Tone Buffer. Ordered the same day and after work the other day I had a little package right in front of my door - thank you Thomann!

This little "pedal" is really small. And I mean REALLY SMALL. I mounted it on my pedalboard (as the first box in my chain) and let my amp warm up. Standby off and play the intro to "Aerials" by System Of A Down. Wow. How bright! The difference was immense, this little box made everything so much better in my sound.

If you use a bunch of pedals in front of your amp spend the money on the Pure Tone Buffer from Visual Sound. You won't regret it.

Undecided
Zdravko M., 08.12.2015
I just made my new pedalboard, and there are 13 pedals on it.
So, as you could expect, there is some signal loss, and so I decided to buy myself one of these tone buffers.
As I said already, there is some signal loss, but not a huge one when just going through the pedals, but enough to make some audible difference. When I put the buffer in front of my pedal chain, there was some improvement, but I'm not impressed that much. I watched some reviews on u-tube, and there was huge difference between going through the pedals, or longer cables, and going through the buffer in the front.
I recorded some audio clips with my SURE SM58 in front of the amp, and I played both my Fender strat, and Gibson LP, clean, and overdrive channel, in every combination (staight in the amp, throgh pedals, through the buffer) so I'm sure about what I said before. It's an improvement, but is it worth the money???
Since I bought it, I'm going to keep it, but I'm not sure if I'd do it again. Maybe there would be bigger improvement if there was bigger signal loss to start with.

Cheap box that will make you sound worse
DT1980, 22.09.2019
Cheaply constructed metal box with a sticker, lacks on/off switch wich makes it very unpractical.
Doesn't do anything to improve the sound, it actually sounds better without it, less sustain and poor sound quality when in use. I wouldn't recommend this to anybody, this unit is going back.

Tiny wonder
Eurospace, 10.02.2016
It is tiny, simple, performs the way it's supposed to, and then some.

Placed at the beginning of the signal chain, it boosts it up, giving the signal clarity, brightness and volume. (It doesn't in fact alter the volume, just creates the illusion of loudness and makes your signal more immune to those tone suckers further down the chain.)

It looks discreet and unobtrusive. Plug it in and leave it alone. In fact, as this is a unit that doesn't even have an on/off switch, perhaps it is better to stick it underneath the pedalboard, to get it out of the way.

Although it is so tiny - only marginally bigger than a matchbox - that you are not likely to save any real estate.

Perhaps there are bigger and better booster pedals out there. I can't imagine the "better" bit and as for the "bigger", no thanks. I like my Pure Tone just the way it is. Would I recommend it? Hell yeah.
