Overview

The Empress Buffer+ was designed to be the complete I/O interface for the pedal board, while maintaining the highest fidelity to your guitar's signal. Signal loss due to long, un-buffered cable runs is an issue that has plagued guitar players for decades. The primary goal of the buffer+ is to eliminate this signal loss, ensuring that your tone is unchanged by your cables. Additionally, all the connectivity of your pedal board is consolidated to make set up quick and easy. The Buffer+ also has a very handy set of features that make life just a little better. Noise filters, input pads, switchable clean boost and input loading are all powerful tools available on the Buffer+

Features

  • All Analog Signal Path - no digitals in here
  • Small Size - The enclosure measures approximately 4.5" by 2.5" by 1.5", which is delightfully small when considering all the features packed into this unit
  • Tuner Out - Separate tuner output keeps your tuner out of the audio path
  • Complete I/O - All the connections to your pedal board consolidated in one place. Makes setup and teardown quick and easy
  • Switchable Boost - Dial in up to 30dB of clean boost and switch on and off with the soft touch foot switch
  • Tuner Mute - Hold the footswitch for a second and mute the amp output for tuning
  • Noise Filters - Similar to Dolby's noise filter technology, choose between 2 different noise filters to remove any unwanted noise from your effects chain
