Brian Wampler makes great pedals. He also makes great videos about pedals, amps, tone, and the guitar signal chain.
In this short video, he addresses a common question that crops up in Wampler’s after-sales support: why does the tone get a lot brighter when you add another pedal to the chain?
As Brian covers, the real problem is that the signal chain was artificially dark and dull in the first place. The culprit? Pedals that aren’t true bypass, and that don’t have an internal buffer. Watch the video for the full explanation.
