Stand Alone Buffers


What is a buffer and why do I need one?


A buffer is a circuit that takes the high input impedance signal from your guitar and turns it into a low output impedance signal. Buffers can lessen the high end roll off and loss of dynamics that happens when you run through long cables or several true bypass pedals.


A basic test is to play your guitar straight into your amp using a very short cable. This is your pure unaltered tone. Note the sound, feel and clarity coming out of your amp. Next, plug your guitar into your usual stage cables and pedal board and listen to the dry signal.  More than likely what you will notice is when you add in the extra capacitance of longer cable runs and going through several true-bypass pedals your tone will have a little less body and the high end frequencies will be rolled off, robbing your tone of clarity.  Who is to say that's a bad thing?  Some people use this to their advantage when using a bright guitar or amp.  Other players want as much of that "plugged straight in" tone and feel as they can achieve, and a good buffer will give you that. 


Choose from a Klon style op-amp buffer circuit or a Cornish style BC549 transistor based circuit.
