Maintaining your guitar tone in the face of the harsh environment of a loaded pedalboard and long cable runs can be a challenge. While one long cable may not trash your sound, and one pedal — even a poorly designed one — may not pull you under a tonal blanket, add a few more pedals, interconnect cables, and another long cable run or two, and you’ll start to hear it.
Opinions vary as to how you should handle this. Some guitarists prefer to go with all true-bypass pedals, others rely on low-capacitance cables to protect their sound, and some use buffered pedals, which have built-in electronics to protect your signal from harm. But the quality of built-in buffers is often less than stellar.
RJM Music Technologies has another solution: the Tone Saver. The Tone Saver is a purpose-designed, high-quality buffer amp designed to condition your signal to deal with pedals and long cable runs. The Tone Saver couldn’t be simpler: plug it into your signal chain, and enjoy pristine top end, plenty of headroom, and gain adjustment to compensate for losses due to pedals and cables. There’s also a transformer-isolated split so you can route your signal to a second amp without hum or buzz problems.
Easy to use and effective — that’s the way I like my music tools. And the Tone Saver qualifies. You’ll be surprised how much of a difference it can make in your rig.
Why not build your guiter/effects system from the ground up based on a solid, robust signal? Unless you’re running a 10-foot cable from your guitar straight to your amp, you need the Tone Saver!
