Morley Buffer Boost combines their “TrueTone” buffer with a handy Boost pedal.

Cary, IL (Jan 17, 2012) – Morley manufacturers of the Wah, Volume and Switching devices announced the release of its newest product – the Buffer Boost.

The Buffer Boost is a combination buffer circuit and clean boost pedal. The buffer circuit maintains guitar tone and overall signal strength even when using it with effects that typically load down your signal. 

The Buffer Boost is also a handy clean boost pedal. A foot switch allows you to turn on/off the boost as needed and a level knob offers up to 20dB of boost. Dual LEDs show that the pedal power is on and when the boost is engaged.

The Buffer Boost is housed in a cold rolled steel housing and can be powered from one 9V battery or optional Morley 9V adapter. Although the Buffer Boost was designed with guitarists in mind, it can be used anywhere where tone and level are important.

The Buffer Boost is available in February 2012 for $119.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
