The CLEARLINK™ (SEND) BUFFER / BALANCED LINE-DRIVER targets the inability that many pedals (and even some buffers have) which is to adequately drive a very long cable run to a back-line amplifier.
The integrated line-driver circuit is capable of driving up to a 330ft/100m balanced or shorter unbalanced cable run, via standard XLR microphone or shielded 1/4” TS instrument cables, respectively. A recessed and countersink protected side-panel pot allows intently adjusting the output signal level reaching the back-line amplifier, either directly (unbalanced) or balanced via a CLEARLINK™ (RECEIVE) CONVERTER / ISO TRANSFORMER.
Using the CLEARLINK™ SEND in tandem with a STOWAWAY™ INPUT BUFFER resolves the deep-rooted signal loss and inconsistent tone issues faced by guitarists due to; capacitive loading, impedance loading and mismatching, and changes to a pickup’s resonant frequency/ peak, as a result of varying effect pedals and interconnecting cables. The two form an effects loop, which segregates the guitar and amplifier from the variables on a pedalboard, easily handles many pedals, interconnecting cables and effortlessly drives a long cable run to the back-line amplifier, either balanced or unbalanced. They accomplish this by providing the two constants in every guitar rig (the guitar and amplifier) with a resolute load and source, via the STOWAWAY™ and the CLEARLINK™, respectively. As a result, the only variations in sound and tone will be from the actual effect of the pedals on the pedalboard, and not from a guitar or amplifier related loading or impedance mismatch issue.
