congrats on the new axe, Sammy, and thanks for posting!
i hesitate to ask, but here goes...
i am using a TPC-1 in pedal. i use a 7' cord between guitar and pedal. (i am aware best is in guitar) 25k EB volume pedal last before smsctp. what really led me to using a buffer years ago (before knowing anything whatsoever about guitar wiring or findinding rukind) was two things: tone loss through fx and feeling like my signal was nearly impossible to controle for consistency... frustrating... when i started using a buffer i noticed two big differences: my fx sounded way better AND this little detail... a/b'd the signal/tone sounds (bear w driscriptive sound words) "hotter" or "crisper" but perhaps maybe "thinner" when guitar is pugged directly into amp w/o buffer. Ive always turned the gain down slightly on amp to smooth out. i got a TPC-1 in a pedal just for this reason, to smooth this out regardless of what guitar or amp i use. (this question obviously goes beyond jerrytone exclusivly) tone wise i prefer w tcp1 over direct into amp. this difference is subtle but distinctly there. ive not heard this mentioned here, just all the other benefits to using a buffer.
is the signal/tone i get w ax plugged directly into amp my "baseline" that i should strive to maintain, or is this subtle difference between hiZ and lowZ normal and im right on track. asking this because of

i love my tone/signal w buffer. clear, transparent, controllable. just curious about this other little difference, if my discriptive words make sence to any one.
