    what is the headroom of a buffer input?
    if i have 26 dB clean boost feeding in a buffer pedal like a boss, will i clip the input?

    same goes for my EP boost, can i stack 3 of them at max gain and still have a clean out at the 3rd one of the clipping of the 40dB from the 2 first ones will destroy the input buffer of the 3rd one?

    The short answer is, of course you are going to get distortion if you stack a ton of gain.
    The long answer will have to await your personal experimentation. Report your findings here. We wait.
