Why using a Signal Buffer?

In a guitar rig setup, it’s common to use multiple effects pedals and long cable runs, but this can create issues with signal loss and degradation. The capacitance and resistance of the signal chain, along with the characteristics of guitar pickups, can act as a low-pass filter, resulting in a loss of clarity and high-end in your tone. The best solution to this problem is to use a signal buffer in your chain, and Cristal boasts several features that make it an excellent choice for any player.

Simple in Operation, Clever in Design

First and foremost, its high input impedance ensures that your guitar signal is buffered without loading down the pickups or affecting your guitar’s tone. Additionally, the pedal’s low output impedance maintains the integrity of your guitar signal, ensuring that it can travel through long cable runs and multiple pedals or amplifiers without any loss or degradation.

Cristal also internally converts input voltage from 9V to 18V, providing more headroom and ensuring that your tone is not compromised. And with its high-quality audio-grade op-amps and gold-plated contact relay-based bypass system, you can rest assured that you’ll hear your true tone without any unwanted coloration.

Don’t Settle for Less

We designed Cristal with players in mind. Unlike many buffers, it features a footswitch that allows you to compare buffered and unbuffered signals. Sometimes it may be desired to switch off the buffer when using pedals that work best with the pickup impedance at the front of the chain. Additionally, in the event of a power failure, Cristal automatically switches to true bypass operation.

If you’re looking for a compact, high-quality buffer pedal for your guitar signal chain, look no further than our Cristal.
