Really really good !!!

Peter S. 436, 21.12.2015
I'm actually not so the pedal effects freak! Why! Because every effect between guitar and amp changes the sound and the really negative. But somehow you need other, additional sounds and then land on pedals. And then the compromise begins! One is constantly somewhat dissatisfied and the "drills" then constantly in one. I currently use a JHS Sweet Tea and a Weehbo Plexface, both of which run via a One Control Looper. Although only the One Control is directly in the signal path, the sound is negatively affected. Especially with clean sounds. From the search for remedy I am then hit on the Empress Effects Buffer + and was somehow impressed by the possibilities: effects in the loop, additional tuner output, switchable Boost controllable, FX noise gate, etc. etc. And I'm not disappointed! Important, of course, the refreshing of the original signal! And this really works very well. Certainly the direct sound is somewhat different, but with the Empress not worse. At the moment the One Control is running in the loop of the Empress, and a Korg Tuner is powered by the Tunerout. The boost acts after the looped effects, makes them louder and can then be used to adjust the internal lead channels of the amp. Really really good !!!

Top of the range

24.07.2016
From years of working in the assembly pedals and tried a fair amount of buffer / booster.
I use this pedal in my main board and I am fully satisfied, probably the best buffer / compact booster in its class.
The buffer is powerful and crystalline (eye of course to use it before the fuzz, with some can give problems), and provides a signal of absolute cleanliness. Very comfortable the send / return when working with complex routing systems: it allows to buffer / boostare the signal again, as a line driver.
Nothing to say about the boost section, I never went more than half of the volume, incredibly clean.
The side trimmer allows you to seamlessly handle the load on the input (which almost no buffer allows you to do).
Convenient switch -3 db / 0dB / + 3dB when switching from one guitar.
The noise gate is lightweight, discreet and very dynamic.
Really good product.
