DIY Stereo Tri Buffer + Tuner Out Pedalboard Interface
 
The diagrams, templates, and materials listed correspond to this video (shown below), where I show all 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.


STEREO TRI BUFFER + TUNER OUT
The Stereo Tri Buffer is ideal for any STEREO pedalboard system running in front of two amps.
The Tuner Out provides a buffered feed to your tuner, and allows you to remove the tuner from
your signal path while still getting a direct feed from your input.  This could also be used as a
direct out or clean (unaffected) output for re-amping your guitar.
*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.
 
Application Example, STEREO AMPLIFIERS + TUNER OUT
for use with two amps, stereo L & R, with buffered tuner feed from tuner out - tuner out could also be used as "dry" for re-amping
