Description & Specs

The Empress buffer+ was designed to be the complete I/O interface for the pedal board, while maintaining the highest fidelity to your guitar's signal. Signal loss due to long, un-buffered cable runs is an issue that has plagued guitar players for decades. The primary goal of the buffer+ is to eliminate this signal loss, ensuring that your tone is unchanged by your cables. Additionally, all the connectivity of your pedal board is consolidated to make set up quick and easy. The buffer+ also has a very handy set of features that make life just a little better. Noise filters, input pads, switchable clean boost and input loading are all powerful tools available on the buffer+

Great Addition To My Pedalboard

The Empress Buffer Plus pedal provides some nice options for cleaning up my pedalboard. I actually was looking for a new clean boost pedal to use primarily as a volume increase for solo segments. This pedal covers that use but it also provides a couple of critical signal path solutions. One, it has a good buffer to maintain a quality signal chain on my board. Next, it provides a dedicated Tuner Out that allows me to isolate my pedal tuner and keep it out of the main signal chain. After that, it includes an effects loop to connect my additional pedals. All of this combines to keep my signal clean and clear. The Boost footswitch also doubles as a Mute when held down a little longer. The only negative I've found on this pedal is the little Input Loading knob on the right side of the pedal is so small that I found it difficult to grip to adjust it. That design could be improved. I had to resort to using (carefully) some needle nose pliers to turn it. Fortunately, for me, this is a once set it and I'm done setting. If you plan on adjusting this much, it would likely be a source of frustration. Otherwise, I really like this pedal.

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!
