great buffer
13.04.2016
I have a lot of pedals and the diference between my guitar pluged directly into my amp (tele with a blues deluxe)and pluged trough my pedalboard into the amp is really huge....negatively huge...the tone suck with the pedals was just too big...high freq cut, muddy bass freq, and dull overall sound. the cables i use are not the best but they are not the cheapest, but too many true bypass pedals and cable lenght have thier consequences...that was good enough for me to get a buffer and i got it...this little and not so expensive thing was the perfect solution for my problem...no tone suck, high's are back, the tone is clear and sparkly and no noise added. It's really small, ultra simple, 9v dc...excellent!

If like me you are running quite a lot of true bypass pedals then you really do need a buffer. I refused to believe it until I did the test. After hooking up the BonaFide buffer the highs in my sound returned. It's a great size and very sturdy.

Well worth putting at the front of your signal chain for an extra tone boost. A very simple way to get the best of your guitar's tone.
