If you know anything about Suhr, then you know that the quality of their products are held to the highest standards. Even down to their Buffer Pedal. The Suhr Buffer is built with the highest quality components on the market, such as audiophile Op-Amps, Glass Epoxy PCB, even a custom machined billet aluminum enclosure.
The Suhr Buffer is a transparent signal buffer/line driver which is an essential tool designed to preserve your instrument's tone. Tone loss occurs as a result of signal degradation, commonly caused by long cable run, or the use of multiple instrument cables - such as you would find on a pedal board. To solve this, the Suhr Buffer employs unity buffering to reverse the effects of capacitance without affecting your instruments tone or output level.
Suhr recommends placing this buffer as the first pedal in your signal chain, but if you're running any Fuzz pedals or Tone Benders they recommend placing this pedal after those pedals.
Features, Inputs & Outputs:
This buffer features two independent outputs:Standard output to amp or effects and ISO (Isolated), which uses a transformer to eliminate ground noise and features a 180 degree Phase Inverter switch to keep your pedals in phase while connecting to another amp or PA system.
DC INLET: Use a compatible 9-18Vdc with a center negative power supply.
INPUT: Instrument Input, use this jack to connect to your instrument.
OUTPUT: Primary output, use this jack to connect to an amplifier or effect device.
ISO OUTPUT (transformer isolated): Secondary output, use this to split your instrument's signal to an additional amplifier or sound source.
PHASE SWITCH: The Phase Switch reverses the polarity of the Buffer's ISO Output by 180 degrees. Activate this switch to keep both output sources in phase.
OUT: Normal (non-reversed)
IN: Signals phase reversed by 180
