4 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 4 years' warranty and 60 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The Ideal Companion For Your Pedalboard

With the Empress Effects 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.

Tuner Out Jack

The Tuner Out jack drives a separate signal to your tuner pedal without reducing your output or altering your tone. And when nothing is connected to the Loop In jack, the loop out and tuner out jack can be used to split your signal 2 or 3 ways and drive each one to a separate amp or to effects with stereo inputs.

Features

  • All Analog Signal Path which maintains the clarity of tones.
  • Small Size when considering all the features packed into one unit
  • Separate tuner output keeps your tuner out of the audio path.
  • Flat Top - Velcro your tuner to the top and you won't use any pedalboard real estate at all.
  • All the connections to your pedalboard consolidated in one place which makes setup and teardown quick and easy
