While true-bypass pedals are designed to preserve the integrity of your guitar’s signal, using several true-bypass pedals chained together can still result in wimpy tone. That’s because the excess lengths of cable needed to connect everything together can suck a lot of frequencies from a signal by the time it reaches the end of the chain. The Morley Buffer Boost features a buffer circuit that gives your guitar’s signal an extra push at the front or back of the signal chain to maintain level and tone, and it also provides up to 20dB of clean boost that you can engage for solos.
