J. Rockett Audio Designs Releases the SOS Buffer
J. Rockett Audio Designs Ushers in the sixth of the new Tour Series and unveils the SOS Buffer pedal.
Nashville, TN (October 7, 2016) -- J. Rockett Audio Designs has announced the sixth product release of the long awaited Tour Series line. The Tour Series is comprised of products designed with the influence of a host of top Nashville and LA touring artists to address their needs on the road.
The collaboration continues with the release of the J. Rockett Audio Designs SOS Buffer.
Every pedalboard needs a good buffer. Buffers balance out your impedance and get the loss of highs back on track, especially with multiple pedals and long cable runs. The quality of guitar cables can vary so if you’ve ever plugged straight into your amp and then back into your board, you know what I mean. The SOS is exactly what it’s name infers, a pedal that will rescue your tone! There is one knob used to subtly vary the focus of your high end. Some buffers can over-do it and some don’t do enough. The SOS control will allow you to dial in the highs to be exactly how you need them and you won’t get that crazy interaction with Fuzz pedals and Wah pedals.
SOS Buffer features include:
- SOS Control: subtly adjusts the amount of top end in your signal path to be balanced
- I/O jacks at the head of the pedal
- 9V DC operation with standard – tip and + sleeve
- Approximately 2.65” x 2.65” in size
The SOS Buffer carries a $79 street price.

Fredric Effects Announces the Accomplished Badger
An original two-stage boost with an opamp buffer/boost driving a germanium transistor gain stage.
North London (September 14, 2016) -- The Fredric Effects Accomplished Badger is an original two-stage boost with an opamp buffer/boost driving a germanium transistor gain stage. The Germanium transistors used are individually selected vintage new-old-stock components, tested for optimal gain and low leakage. Because of the nature of these two gain stages, the Accomplished Badger can be used as a sparkly clean boost, to just push an amp to breakup, or for a grittier saturated sound like a torn speaker or an overloaded recording desk tone. More versatile than straight clean boosts, and the sort of effect you may not want to turn off, the Accomplished Badger is a very useful pedal to have around.
