  • Stability and Consistency for your Input Signal

    The STOWAWAY™ INPUT BUFFER provides a quick and easy fix to 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. It accomplishes this by providing the weakest link in every guitar rig, the guitar itself, with a resolute load which segregates it from the many variables on a pedalboard and the long cable run to a back-line amplifier. It does so by converting the guitar’s high-impedance signal to low-impedance, which also minimizes its susceptibility to noise, interference, and even some of the switch “popping” associated with true-bypass pedals. As a result, the variations in sound and tone will be predominantly from the actual effect of the pedals, and not from a guitar related high-impedance signal issue.

    The buffer is a 100% discrete Class-A circuit with an input impedance and other finely tuned characteristics which mimic that of a high quality tube amplifier, and it includes an RFI filter to minimize the possibility of radio-frequency interference and noise. It presents a dynamically ideal load to a guitar that remains steadfast, resulting in a tone that is consistent, while still allowing the guitar to breathe, live, and react - like plugging directly into the front of a tube amplifier.
