Need a buffer. HUMM?
First, I would like to thank Sweetwater and sales rep Ryan for the great service. Now to the buffer.
I bought the black Concord buffer because of the color and liked the hookup on one side for cables.
Also, I thought the ability to run 18 volts was a plus. It really took me a while to order this because I really wasn't sure it would do anything with my tone. I even expected I might return it.
I use a Marshall DSL40C, thirteen various pedals and about 20 ft of cable from guitar thru the pedal board then two the amp. I did some testing and it seemed I was losing some clarity in my system. Though not substancial, I thought I would try a buffer. When I received the Concord buffer I could tell it was well built and had several components inside due to its weight.
Well....Wow!! I actually got more results than expected. I think it may sound better than pluging straight into my amp....if thats even possible. All the treble is back, notes sound alive and as a plus, it seems to level out all of my pedals. I don't seem to fiddle with them as much to get the tone I want.
So, if in doubt that buffers work.....they do!
