No More Signal Loss From Long Cables

With the Empress Effects Stereo Buffer +, signal loss due to long cables is now a thing of the past. This clever unit improves the high frequency response of your overall pedal chain and will exactly replicate what is connected to the input. It works by a loop out jack and a loop In jack lets you place your effects after the buffer while still driving your pedal-altered signal to your amp. It is an ideal choice if you have a lot of pedals connected in series and are losing sound fidelity.

12 Operating Modes

The Empress Effects Stereo Buffer+ is fully packed with 12 different operating modes, where each mode features its own unique signal routing to provide you with maximum versatility and adaptability. Empress Effects have kindly created videos for each of these different modes which can be viewed via the youtube links above.

AB and AY Inputs

By using the onboard footswitch, you can quickly change the function from a boost activator to an A/B switch or an A/Y switch, which also allows for the loop to be accessed individually or simultaneously.

No More White Noise

The Empress Stereo Buffer+ includes noise filters which allows you to choose between 2 different noise filters to remove any unwanted noise such as white noise from digital pedals from your effects chain.

Achieve Up To 30DB Extra

Another great feature that the Empress Stereo Buffer+ has to offer is the switchable Boost option. It allows you to dial in up to 30dB of clean boost and switch on and off with the soft touch foot switch to give your signal all the clean boost you could ever want. An ideal feature when you want to add more impact to your performances.


  • All Analog Signal Path for optimum sound
  • Dial in up to 30dB of clean boost and switch on and off with the soft touch foot switch
  • Use the onboard footswitch to AB or AY the outputs, AB the inputs for instrument switching, or even bypass your amp's effects loop
  • 12 Different Operating Modes
  • LED meters on all inputs to show the incoming signal and to alert you of clipping
  • Press the footswitch for a second to mute the amp output for tuning, or use an external footswitch to mute the output instantly
  • Noise Filters allow you to choose between two different noise filters to remove any undesired noise from your effects chain
  • Pad the input by either 6dB or 12dB which is ideal for matching output levels of different instruments
  • Avoid ground loops when connecting to multiple amps or sources. Polarity can also be inverted to maintain phase between stereo amps
  • Connect an external footswitch (Sold Separately) to activate the boost or instantly mute the output for tuning, to allow the onboard switch to be used for AB/AY switching
