OVERVIEW

Clean up your sound and your cables with this top-quality buffer/junction box.

The Friedman Buffer Bay 6 is a simple solution that incorporates Dave's wealth of experience and knowledge providing players an innovative tool which can be easily implemented to any pedalboard or easily mount into any Friedman-branded pedalboard.

The Buffer Bay accomplishes two basic things.

First, it is an ultra transparent, natural and musical sounding buffer, which can be turned on or off using the provided switch. The buffer solves the fundamental problem of loading loss caused by interconnected cables and some pedals. This "loss" siphons your guitar of fidelity, tone and volume level. This problem occurs even if all the pedals used are true bypass and the more pedals and longer the cable runs, the greater the losses.

The Buffer Bay 6 circuitry, when engaged, sounds identical to your guitar straight into the amp! You can access the buffer using the buffers IN connector on one side of the Buffer Bay and Buffer Out on the other side.

Second, the Buffer Bay is a patch bay with the following benefits:
Cleans up all of the connections on your pedalboard.
Allows for tighter pedal placement on the board (you no longer need to access the jacks on certain pedals).
Lets you have all cables from your board in the same location allowing neater cord runs on stage.
Your pedal chain in permanently connected making setup and takedown quick and painless.
Saves the life of the jacks on your pedals by not plugging in cables ever y time you play.
Easily configure your input or output in hard to reach places.

The Buffer Bay 6 includes 5 identical 1/4-in. TRS (tip, ring, sleeve) in and out connections and a Buffered TS (tip, sleeve) connection (can be turned ON/OFF via switch). It also provides a 7 pin MIDI thru connection. The Buffer Bay 6 can be used for a wide variety of connection schemes. Once the Buffer Bay is configured on your board, simply plug your guitar and amp in and you no longer have to fight with your first and last pedals.

Using an extra patch cable you can easily go from using an amp with an effects loop to using one without.
