Suppose you ride your volume knob to clean up your od/fuzz type pedals...seems like this ability would be lost with an OBEL. Am I wrong? Is there a way around it?

When the pot is on 10, it's essentially like it's not there, full signal to the buffer, and you have a normal OBEL guitar. If you turn down that volume knob, you still have the buffer right there to handle the loop and OBEL functions, but you've turned down the guitar level to hit your overdrive pedal more softly to "clean" it up a bit. You still need the main OBEL master volume pot as usual. It works great.
