I've read a bit about buffers lately since I'm planning a new board for my pedals. it is explained that a pedal with buffer provides the same signal out as you get in. Some people say `put a buffered pedal first in the chain and you are good`. My logic tells me that this will only apply until the signal meet a new signal sucking pedal in the chain. How many pedals without buffer can I have after a buffered pedal such as Boss TU-3 without loss of signal? Also, how long a cable will it feed? I understand that it will vary with the type and quality of the pedal and cable, but I guess my question is if my logic is wrong. I have also read somewhere that more than 3 pedals with buffer in a chain is bad. Is there anything to this?
