Can I use another STOWAWAY™ INPUT BUFFER at the end of my pedalboard to drive a long cable run to my back-line amplifier?
Theoretically you could, but we have another device which is better suited as an output line-driver, the CLEARLINK™ BUFFER/BALANCED LINE-DRIVER. It’s capable of driving up to a 330ft/100m balanced or shorter unbalanced cable run, via standard XLR microphone or shielded 1/4” TS instrument cables, respectively, to the back-line amplifier. Alternatively, we also have a two-in-one device called the HIGH-WIRE™ DUAL BUFFER / OUTPUT BOOST which includes both circuits, plus a boost and tuner mute. Using the STOWAWAY™ INPUT BUFFER in tandem with a CLEARLINK™ BUFFER/BALANCED LINE-DRIVER resolves the deep-rooted signal loss and inconsistent tone issues faced by guitarists due to; capacitive loading, impedance loading and mismatching, and changes to a pickup’s resonant frequency/peak, as a result of varying effect pedals and interconnecting cables. They accomplish this by providing the two constants in every guitar rig, the guitar and amplifier, with a resolute load and source, via the STOWAWAY™ and the CLEARLINK™, respectively. The two form an effects loop, which segregates the guitar and amplifier from the variables on a pedalboard, easily handles many pedals, interconnecting cables, and effortlessly drives a long cable run to the back-line amplifier, either balanced or unbalanced. As a result, the only variations in sound and tone will be from the actual effect of the pedals on the pedalboard, and not from a guitar or amplifier related loading or impedance mismatch issue.
