Empress Effects

An all analog buffer designed to save you from signal loss and preserve your tone.

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

  • Tuner Out - Separate tuner output keeps your tuner out of the audio path
  • Complete I/O - All the connections to your pedalboard 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

    Comments about Empress Effects Buffer+ Analog I/O Interface Guitar Pedal with Switchable Boost:

    With the evolution of true bypass and long cables, you need a buffer but may not realize it. Some (true bypass) pedals have buffered bypass options, other do not. I searched my options in the buffer world and finally decided to take the plunge on this one. The added options of a clean boost, tuner out, input gain or cut and a noise filter make this pedal worth every penny. The beauty of it is the use of buffered effects loop idea rather than just a buffer in a chain. If you are in need of a buffer, drop the little extra coin and grab this one.
