Gr8fulfred: I am (re)building my rig after almost 10 years of essentially not playing (played a TON for about 15 years before that, including a degree from Berklee). My point is...I am buying ALL new effects, all of which will be boutique- Analogman, HBE, 3Leaf, Wampler, EHX, etc. Are these pedals, which appear to be "high end", have TRUE hardwire bypass, or will I benefit from hardwire loops?? Please, let the cost of this stop going up!!
Oh, and I'll just switch off the OBEL if I'm not using ANY effects.
B: It appears I will definitely need a buffer at the end of the chain to return to the OBEL and go through the 25k vol pot, right?? Thoughts on the Wampler Clean Buffer, or should I just go with the master: Waldo!
So psyched to start playing Dead tunes again! And Allmans, and Steely Dan, and Phish, and Floyd, and Widespread, and...and...
