Description & Specs

Every guitarist loves buying pedals, we can't help it. Show us a flashy new pedal and we will sell a vital organ to make sure we can take it home. But, just like putting tires on your car, there are those supporting actors that are necessary for the leading roles to shine. Enter THE FIXER. He's not flashy and doesn't need the spotlight or recognition, but he will make sure all your other pedals shine while making it easier for you to reach for that second guitar that you've been neglecting.

THE FIXER is part buffer, part booster, and all about how it makes your guitar feel. There are two different boost circuits. Why you may ask? How many times have you dialed in your tone to perfection and then reached for another guitar only to realize that the difference in output has changed how our drives and amp respond? FIXED. Need an always-on output for your tuner but also want a way to mute your signal chain to switch guitars? FIXED. Need a high-quality buffer to fix the impedance issues created by the dozens of guitar pedals on your board? FIXED.

After years on the road as a tech for some of the best guitarists out there, Dave realized the need for a pedal that would allow you to switch guitars without drastic changes in volume and tone. That’s why THE FIXER has two identical boosts. Not only do these boosts help to make up the slight gain loss from our favorite buffer but they also provide the option to add a bit more oomph to your signal if you so desire. Set your gain to perfection with your favorite humbucker guitar, then hit the mute switch, grab that vintage strat, boost the gain up to match your high output guitar and play on.

The unsung hero in this pedal, however, is the buffer. Buffers are tricky and opinions abound. A buffer can bring the life back to a long signal chain or thin out your tone and make it feel stiff. We made a buffer that we actually like and think you might too. Even if you aren't getting fancy with the boosts, the buffer in this pedal will make your whole rig "feel" better. More responsive tighter lows, and smoother highs while fixing the impedance issues like a buffer should. You might even forget it's there, but when you take it out, you'll wonder what happened to your tone.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
