Today I was playing my Strat through my Princeton-voiced GA5 amp. Guitar straight into amp. Glorious.
I tried to add reverb from a Boss FRV-1 pedal. Very nice too but in bypass mode the tone darkens a bit over straight into amp. Why is this?

Boss redid their buffer design years ago. I'm surprised you're hearing a little loss in high end with just one pedal? Even my crappy MIJ DS-1 with the old buffer is fine if the only pedal being used.

What's your cable type and run length?
