Maximize your tone!

The Tone Saver is the same audio buffer circuit found in our high end audio switching products such as the Mini Effect Gizmo and the Rack Gizmo, but placed in a compact pedal sized enclosure. This is an ideal addition to any pedal board or rack system.

Any time you add effects or long cables to your guitar rig, you will lose some of your guitar’s tone. The treble will start to roll off, resulting in a dull tone that is missing some of the life it had when you you were plugging straight into the amp. This can happen whether you’re using true bypass effects or using effects that have low quality buffers in them. Adding the Tone Saver will properly buffer your guitar’s signal, greatly diminishing any tone loss and bringing back the sparkle and detail you were missing. The vast majority of pro guitar rigs will include one or more buffers for this reason.

The Tone Saver runs on 9 volts like most effects pedals, but internally converts that 9 volts up to 18 volts, which results in increased audio performance and more headroom than you’ll ever need. There is also a transformer isolated output that allows you to split your guitar’s signal to a tuner or second amp without signal loss or hum due to ground loops.

Add a Tone Saver to your guitar rig and get back the tone you’ve been missing out on!
