DIY Mono Dual Buffer / Splitter Pedalboard Interface
 
The diagrams, templates, and materials listed correspond to this video (shown below), where I show all you DIYers
how to build a Pedalboard Buffer Interface system just like the pros!  All of the info you'll need to design your own
customized buffer with options for mono, stereo, wet/dry, split mono, effects loops or 4 cable method, audition
loops, tuner outs, and more are all available as you scroll down the page.
 
 


MONO DUAL BUFFER / SPLITTER
The Mono Dual Buffer is ideal for any MONO pedalboard system running in front of an amplifier.
The Splitter Out provides a buffered feed for a second MONO amplifier. You can now use up to
two amplifiers that can provide a BIGGER mono sound and help fill in your tonal EQ and body.
*NOTE: Some multi-amp set-ups may require galvanic isolation and/or polarity reversal on one amp.  We suggest the Lehle
P Split as a solution, placed as close to the amplifier as possible for the transformer isolation, and the polarity (phase) controls.
