The Pure Tone Buffer is hand built to order with the greatest attention for quality and detail to ensure that you get the clearest noise free tone you can get and that your tone is preserved throughout your signal chain. We use ONLY high quality components such as audiophile hookup wire, high quality led’s , 1% metal film resistors, high grade film capacitors , true bypass 3pdt switches and of course our Laser Engraved enclosures. This might be considered a bit over kill by some, but not to us! Helping you get the purest and clearest noise free tone out of your rig is what we are all about. The Pedals are entirely hand made in all their parts: the circuit is manually assembled, wired and tested one by one, the die cast aluminum box is hand pierced. When ready, each single model is 24 hours continuously tested in order to identify any defect.
100% transparent - no coloration of original tone
All Jacks are isolated to eliminate ground loops.
RF Filters and Silent Switching systems are fitted to all our pedals.
We don't believe in battery power, that is why our devices are not powered by a battery.

Our PURE TONE Buffer is a transparent signal buffer which is designed to preserve your overall pure tone. Tone loss occurs as a result of signal long cable run, use of multiple instrument cables, mismatching pedals, low input impedance or non true bypass pedals and the use of many pedals
connected in series (For more reading Click Here). To solve this, we developed our high quality buffer which features a discreet Class-A amplifier to get the best sound quality (unlike class-B preamps found in most buffered pedals that color the tone). Class-A circuits are preferred due to reduced zero cross distortion, improved phase response and the resulting smooth Bessel curve of evenly cascading harmonics.
The Buffer retains your guitar and amps original tone just like you had a really short cable and nothing else in the chain. It restores your audible amount of high end clarity and dynamics loss and provided you with the perfect final result of clear, natural tone that sounds like you're plugged straight into your amplifier.
The optimal placement for a buffer is usually near the first of your pedal chain, it can also be used at the end of the effects chain, just before the amplifier, especially if you have a lot of true bypass effects pedals. If you are using a vintage fuzz pedal we recommend placing the Buffer after those devices to retain their characteristics and relationship with your instrument's electronics. These are just suggestions, like always it's always best to experiment to get your own tone. If you have a large pedal board we do recommend running two of these one at the front of the chain and one at the end of the chain (Or just use our Dual or Custom Buffer).
