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.

High impedance magnetic and piezo pick-ups benefit the most, but even active pick-ups can benefit.  Why? Because active pick-ups typically still have about a 2K ohms moderately high output impedance.  This is on purpose so they can be blended and summed together; and rolling back on the volume pot raises the impedance some more.  Adding the Redeemer install kit as your guitar's final output buffer circuit makes your instrument bullet-proof to tone loss.

The same technology as found in the Redeemer Ai1 Kit, all in one simple gold plated jack, making installation as easy as replacing the jack in most guitars.  Many guitars, like the Les Paul and Telecaster for instance, have their jacks mounted inside a tunnel behind a mounting bezel.  The Ai1 Redeemer simplifies installation on such guitars.  Guitars that use thick panel jacks, or that have more complicated wiring (stereo outputs, or split mag/piezo set-ups) would need to use the Install version at the top of the page.

The Ai1 Redeemer is also great for adding a buffered output to volume pedals or other passive pedals, and has even been installed to add a buffered output on some mixers that we've modified.

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

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

  • Super high input-Z more than 20Mohms, great for all pick-ups.

  • Rollback your volume without tone loss.

  • Low output-Z less than 75 ohms 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.

  • 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

  • The smallest possible circuit to fit in ANY place a guitar jack was used.

  • Simple to install.

  • Convert passive pedals to buffered.
  • Add buffered outputs to analog audio gear.
  • Can be powered with up to 36VDC.
  • Optional Unity or +6dBu 
  • Optional Metal or Nylon threaded jack
