right now i only have a russian big muff, and it tone sucks a bit,
i'm assuming the tonesucking will get worse if i add more pedals.
What are the solutions to tonesucking??

You mean it sucks tone when it's bypassed, right?

You can build/buy a true bypass box/looper.


Yep, or remove the pedals.

Keeley makes some true bypass boxes you could get. Or you could always build some.

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

Just shell out the cash for a nice petal with true bypass or get one of the kelly modded boxes as said ealier.

I personally mod all my pedals with true bypass, if you handy with tools its not too hard. Just google it.

Well i'm pretty sure it IS true bypass, but the tone does seem to degrade? am I crazy?
It doesn't ruin the tone it's just when the pedal is in the line and disengaged it's like the sound... isn't breathing as much, it's not as open.

It's probably the extra cable you're adding when you use the pedal.

it isn't cheap, but monster, or mogami, or maybe planet waves (haven't tried them) all make cables that'll help your tone out a lot.
and, you said it. bbe sonic maximizer. i love that thing.
