This is the revised version of the original standalone Fuzz Buffer. It can be used with any low impedance fuzz circuit to solve the issues discussed below. It now includes an effects loop that allows the user to operate the buffered device using The Buffer Deluxe as a True Bypass Looper.

I've gotten a tremendous amount of feedback asking why you would want to buffer low impedance, vintage-style fuzzes. The simple answer is: Freedom.

It provides a high impedance input, removing Placement issues and nullifying the ill effects of devices driving it. It tailors the output impedance of the buffer circuitry to drive the input of the classic Fuzz Face properly, eliminating Impedance issues that might otherwise hinder the "Full Up" fuzz tone, and most importantly, provides circuit specific frequency tailoring that preserves Dynamics, allowing for touch sensitivity and the classic Fuzz Face "cleanup" regardless of it's place in your chain.

That is the fundamental contribution of both my integrated buffers and the standalone buffer circuits. It gives you the freedom to try new and previously uncharted placements, to be free of RF Interference, and the freedom to use a circuit steeped in tradition, and previously accused of lacking innovation, in ways that have not been fully possible before.

While I firmly believe EVERYONE can love and enjoy my buffered fuzz devices, those using modern switchers, wireless units, active pickups or anyone just wanting to experiment with new and exciting Fuzz Face (and other vintage-style circuits) placements will feel at home with the new freedom the buffer offers.

While this was specifically designed for use with Fuzz Faces, the external controls provide the ability to buffer ANY low impedance, vintage-style fuzzes.

This is a device for gigging and home players alike.

Some have asked if it's a solution in search of a problem and I'd counter that on the contrary, it's a solution TO many problems.
