Designed and hand-built (by Mario) in Canada.
The UNZ1™ Un-Buffer allows Ge| germanium fuzz pedals and other impedance sensitive effects to play and sound right when placed in a signal path or used after, a buffer, wireless, another pedal, or even a guitar with active pickups.
Analog effect pedals and guitars have a dynamic and interdependent relationship. When two devices are connected together, the signal that passes between them, and what is produced, is a unique result of the characteristics of those two devices. So, you cannot substitute either device and expect the exact same results, but you can get quite close! The UNZ1™ will get you there by making your Ge| germanium fuzz or other impedance sensitive effect think it has a guitar connected directly to its input.
For the benefits of buffers, see our Buffer FAQ
- Input Impedance: 1M ohm
- Output Impedance: High-Z
- Housed in a compact; 3.72 x 1.55 x 1.29in. (94.5 x 39.4 x 32.8mm) and rugged #1590A style die-cast aluminum enclosure.
- Powered by 9VDC via a 2.1mm x 5.5mm barrel plug with a negative centre pin (like Boss pedals) with a current draw of 100mA or less (adapter not incl.).
