Well, I've been doing some homework, and my understanding is the reason to go FRFR is so that the tone you get in your monitor exactly matches what you put out to FOH, since you are not micing, but sending the sig via XLR direct out. It kind of forces you to dial your tones into for a full range speaker, which will sound different. Otherwise you build patches to your liking on an amp (by running into the loop), but then they sound bad at FOH.
Anyway, I didn't do that, and now my rig is a combination of the methods. I got a GSP1101 (I know, said I wouldn't, but I did ), and I run it into the back of a Mrk V combo. It actually sounds really good, and is surprising me and my bandmates. The JCM 800 tones are sweet. (If you ask, why don't I just use the MkV... good question. Answer: Stage volume. Can't get a good sound until I turn it up, and that is what we are trying to get away from, so we can focus on vocals and mix. The GSP allows tone, feedback, etc at low volumes... anyway, I digress)
So, I'm back to the pedalboard situation, and I am shopping for a buffer for it. Any recomendations on a good one?

I've never heard a good tone coming out of an amp get shitty after micing it... not once. If anything, it sounds better through the system.
The GSP can do a better job than one would think. I've fooled poeple with it more than once.
My board is crammed in as it is but I could use a buffer, too.

By the way, I know it says it's my first post, but I am a returning member from a few years ago with a new account. I used to be blisteredpinky, but I couldn't get that to come up again.
