Stupidly Awesome Buffer

Here's a well designed buffer by Martin from SoulSonic FX. Use it as a stand alone buffer or as an output buffer in another pedal. Should fit easily in a 1590a enclosure.


  1. Works. Cleans up my pedal board nicely. Cheers.

  2. put one in my Strat running at 18v. WOW!

  3. If i'm replace 5819 to 1n4001 that's going work ??

    1. Yes, though with a very slight voltage drop.

  4. Newb question: how do I increase the input resistance of this buffer?
