$65 for the purchase

$95 for the Install

Right here at Grassroots!

Why do you need a guitar pick-up buffer?

Because your instrument’s output is high impedance your pick-up will suffer from loss of fidelity due to the tone sucking effect of cable capacitance, FX pedal and amplifier loads, as well as the pick-up of stray noises through the connecting cords.  Even if you’ve used a hundred dollar oxygen-free low-capacitance cable, you’ve probably never heard how good your instrument can truly sound.  Also, rolling back your guitar’s volume knob raises the impedance even more and you get all the more tone suck.  A good guitar buffer kit will fix all this.

  • Transparent, flat frequency from 10Hz to 50kHz won’t color your tone.

  • Crystal clear, flat phase response improves signal definition and image.

  • Super high input-Z so you can rollback your volume without tone loss.

  • Low output-Z can drive hundreds of feet of cable, and…

  • Suppress cable noise, and…

  • Be used as a guitar signal splitter, and…

  • To plug directly into any mixer line input without using a tone killing DI box.grass guitar back

  • Extremely low distortion (appx. 0.0005% THD+N).

  • Extremely low noise (less than -125dBu).

  • Long battery life, 300+ hours with an alkaline battery (less than 3mA draw).

  • Dead battery mode allows enough signal so you can keep the show going.

  • 3.6V to 24VDC for extra headroom.

  • Easy Installation kit, just two wires to connect the circuit.

  • Less than the cost of a high quality, low capacitance guitar cable.

Blackstar Amps!

Maybe someday we’ll start selling fish and chips, but for now we’ll have to settle for the next best thing out of the UK : Blackstar ID:Core Amps!

We have all 3 Models, the 10Watt($119), the 20Watt($169), and the 40Watt($229) They are great sounding, affordable, light, small, and huge sounding. Blackstart captured the stereo sound they were going for and then some. You’ll have to hear them for yourself to believe it!
