AmpFister overdrive pedal with Pre-Tone feature. It is designed and built by Sine Effect Electronics.

Allow more sculpting of your distortion and drive tone before the gain stage to allow better sculpting. It is different from using an EQ pedal alone as this EQ tweek only effects the tone from the pedal and after.

We found this pedal to be perfect at what it aims to be, being able to sculpt the tone just before the drive and then into a drive amp head for optimum application.

Genesis Buffer Pedal - A sparkle to your tone

Written by

Built in Scotland Buffer Pedal. No tone colouring, RF Rejection, high-Z to Low-Z. The Genesis Buffer pedal is designed and built by SineEffects for Krachwerke. It is a small, durable and high quality signal buffer for guitars and basses. It changes the signal from your pickups to a Low Impedance signal which allows your signal to be sparklingly healthy and travel along longer leads without high frequency (and thus tone loss) loss. It also filters ultra high frequencies via RF Rejection and is very small as to not waste space on your pedalboard. It does this without colouring the tone or any tone-suck.
