NAMM 2016: TC Electronic Introduce BonaFide Buffer

TC Electronic announce BonaFide Buffer, their first dedicated buffer pedal ever.

BonaFide Buffer is an extremely high-quality, 100% analog buffer that's set to free musician's of the tone-sucking constraints put upon them by massive effects chains and long cable-runs.

Features:

  • High-quality analog buffer
  • Run long cables without any signal degradation
  • Power failure mode - Automatically switches to true bypass if power gets cut
  • Ultra-compact design

BonaFide Buffer has everything that makes a great buffer. It offers a whooping 1M ohm input resistance and a 1K output resistance, so the instrument signal can flow untroubled through the entire signal chain. All of this signal strength is applied without adding any unwanted noise, leaving musicians with that crisp, clear and unaltered tone they would get by plugging straight into an amp.

But of course TC Electronic can't release anything without putting an extra cool and innovative twist on it, and BonaFide Buffer is no exception. Hence, TC have added an intelligent relay system that automatically switches the pedal from buffered to true bypass if power should somehow get cut in the heat of the moment, so musicians will never loss their signal.

All of this is housed in one of TC Electronic's classy mini enclosures, which makes the buffer fit on or under any pedalboard out there.
