so for hoots i set up all my boss pedals today; tu3, ge7, bd2, dd3, rv5 and rc20xl looper into the special 6 and v30 cab. even on low power, no boost, low input setting with volume at 3 the amp and not even halfway up on the guitar it sounds like the amp is really being pushed by the pedals' buffers to the extent it sounds like there's a big,juicy drive pedal on at all times. i plugged straight into the amp and sure enough it's nice and tame again. i usually only use one or two pedals at a time, or if i use the marshall then reverb etc go into the effects loop where lots of buffer isn't that noticeable. but 6 buffered pedals into the preamp is waaay too much. don't get me wrong, it sounds brilliant but it's waaay too much. what do you guys do, and how many buffers is too many?
