    DD-500. The Boss buffer is well known for being a tone sucker, I think it's more noticeable if you have several in a row. The DD500 has the option for True bypass or buffered bypass which is cool.

    I have the boss gt-1 for a couple years. Very satisfied with my purchase, I must say.

    None currently, but have used and owned plenty before including the DD-3, BF-2, CH-1, DS-1, and PH-2. Back in the 80s, I used a BF-2 a ton with my old Akai analog synth, I think I liked it better on synth than guitar!

    I have two and both aren't in use. I have a DS-1 that I make sound offensively bad. I keep it with the intention of trading it to a pedal builder I know.
    Last week, I took in a PS-6 Harmonist (as a part trade) that I likely have neither the talent nor the patience to figure out.

    I have four, configured in differential pairs. The noise cancellation alone is worth it, not to mention the extended headroom.

    If you believe in “tone suck” then make adjustments at the amp. Boss pedals are the best, I don’t care what anyone says.

    SD-1 and DD-7 on my board for use with the Marshall I'm gigging right now.

    I also have CS-3 and CE-7, not currently in use.

    If this was a cocktail party I would nod and pretend to understand then mutter something about dual oscillators and turbo-flush and excuse myself. Since it's an internet forum I'll just confess my ignorance. Can you explain the differential pairs and noise cancellation? Not sure I follow.

    Yep. I like the boss pedals (TU3, TR2, DD7, RV6) currently on my board. I think they sound good, are built like a tank, can be replaced quickly if needed. What's not to like? :)

    Too many to count. Best form factor ever. Also, tuned for live stage use, and tuned well for that purpose.

    There is not one Boss "buffer". Every Boss buffer I've tried has been more than adequate. The Waza ones are exceptional, though that may be confirmation bias induced by the reflective Waza logo on the foot tread.

    You may have gotten used to a darkened and less lively signal due to capacitance. Which is of course fine and your prerogative. But don't use that to say their buffers are somehow "bad". They are a "buffer". They do that job. Which every pedal board I've used has required. I'd rather have my rig run like I'm plugged directly into an amp with a short cable.

    Plugging right in with a short cable is impractical live. So I use a board with buffers on it.

    Rant over.

    One - an FRV-1. I like it a lot but hardly ever use it.
