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.

Manual & FAQ

Empress Buffer User Manual



Question: I play bass! Can I rock out through this pedal?

Answer: Yes! All of our pedals play nicely with bass. Check out the "Features & Specs" section for information on the frequency response of our pedals. We have lots of customers who play bass through our pedals!

Question: The pots turn easily, so they move when I accidently hit them during a show. What can I do?

Answer: One of our customers has a great solution to this problem. If you wrap rubber bands at the base of the pot it makes it harder to turn.
