If you need alternative high-gain sounds without adding another amp, the Riot is the ticket to high-gain heaven in a small package.

Today’s players demand quality, reliability and great tone. To ensure that your investment in tone is preserved throughout your signal chain, the Suhr Buffer utilizes only the highest quality components such as: low noise audiophile Op-Amps, Glass Epoxy PCB, and a machined billet aluminum enclosure. When it comes to quality and reliability, Suhr designed the Buffer with the same attention to detail as all of our award winning products including the Badger, Hand Wired and OD series amplifiers. ​

OVERVIEW
The Suhr Buffer is a transparent signal buffer/line driver which is an essential tool designed to preserve your instrument’s tone. Tone loss occurs as a result of signal degradation, commonly caused by long cable run, or the use of multiple instrument cables – such as you would find on a pedal board. To solve this, the Suhr Buffer employs unity buffering to reverse the effects of capacitance without affecting your instruments tone or output level.

PLACEMENT
We recommend placing the Buffer as the first device in your signal chain. If you are using a vintage fuzz pedal such as a Fuzz Face® or Tone Bender® we recommend placing the Buffer after those devices to retain their character and relationship with your instrument’s electronics.

FEATURES
The Suhr Buffer offers a variety of features for every playing situation. The Buffer is built using the highest quality components and equipped with two independent outputs, all in a compact, solid, aluminum enclosure. One output (ISO) is isolated and utilizes a transformer to eliminate noise from ground looping and features a 180º Phase Reversal switch to keep your signal in phase when splitting between two amplifiers.

OPERATION
DC INLET: Use a compatible 9-18Vdc with a center negative power supply.
INPUT: Instrument Input, use this jack to connect to your instrument.
OUTPUT: Primary output, use this jack to connect to an amplifier or effect device.
ISO OUTPUT (transformer isolated): Secondary output, use this to split your instrument’s signal to an additional amplifier or sound source.
PHASE SWITCH (ø): The Phase Switch reverses the polarity of the Buffer’s ISO Output by 180º. Activate this switch to keep both output sources in phase.
OUT- Normal (non-reversed)
IN- Signals phase reversed by 180º
