Kleissonic Announces the Crystal

A transparent clean boost with a built-in buffer.

Berlin, Germany (August 25, 2014) -- Adding to the company's high-quality line of boutique guitar pedals, Kleissonic announces a new product, the Crystal. It is an extremely transparent clean boost that doesn't add any extra distortion or coloration to the signal. It is a non true-bypass transparent booster that can make you guitar signal level louder up to +16 dB. When it is not in operation, a built-in buffer repairs your tone from cable impedance imbalances and restores you signal's treble loss. The Crystal can optionally attenuate your signal (-dB), and features a switch between “Clean” and “Saturation.”


  • Gain: - oo to +16db maximum boost
  • Input impedance: 1M
  • Output impedance: 10K
  • Non true bypass. Buffered.
  • Current consumption: 30mA at 9VDC
  • Power: Maximum 9 VDC. Battery or center negative regulated DC adapter
  • Dimensions:111 x 60 x 32 (mm)
  • Weight: 350g

The Crystal carries retail suggested price of 139 € (euros), and can be purchased directly from the Kleissonic online shop.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
