Have you ever felt that your tone is dull and flat when running through long lengths of cables & pedals (even with a buffered bypass pedal)? One main reason is that conventional pedal designers have neglected to design an efficient, high-quality buffer circuit and as a result, we guitar players are used to many so-called “lab designed” buffer pedals which turn out to be cold and sterile sounding.
The Xotic Super Clean Buffer (SCB) is designed especially with the purist guitar player “plug straight into a great amp” in mind. The SCB is incorporated with a high-performance Class A preamplifier built around the famous JRC4558 chip. While it is on the buffer mode, it only uses a discrete circuit for the most open and wide spectrum tone. The SCB offers a robust and rich +12dB clean boost. The boost frequency can be selected by an external DIP switch offers very versatile tone-shaping capabilities.
Premium components have been selected to ensure maximum durability and tone quality throughout the circuit including a super heavy-duty footswitch, audio-grade capacitors, and custom-designed potentiometer. No matter if you have an elaborated “refrigerator” rack or only plug into one pedal (and everything in between), the SCB maintains a great tone with no loss of excitement and with a very little footprint.
