If you run your guitar into it and then into the rest of the signal chain, you'd be amazed at the added clarity of the bypassed sound. Other simple buffers get you most of the way there.
Buffers do this by making the sum of cable and wiring capacitance not matter. The guitar sees only the buffer input loading, which can be very, very small.

The answer was to simply turn the knobs on the amp. No problem. Now we come along and we take this Fuzz Face (a near perfect example) and we wire in a DPDT and the tone suck is gone and we can turn the treble knob down. Except now our FF sounds like a mudslide because the thing was originally voiced so that the effected tone was well balanced to the tonesucked sound and we got rid of that.
