Customer Reviews

Works great - but trying to be too Apple-like with lack of any markingsProduct is great. It performs several functions for me.1. I can provide a hotter signal to the amp (fx loop) without increasing volume.2. I can use this turn down all channels of my amp to very very quiet levels, yet maintain a lot more gain than if I attempted to try and find that spot between 0.1 and 1.0 where it's not too loud.However:For a device touted as simple, its odd that it requires a glance at instructions to use. One would never know what end it in and what end is out. In fact, it's one marking (looks like a speaker maybe?) would cause one to wire it backwards. Words and abbreviations are pretty useful, I use them every day, JHS decided we are too stupid or lazy to actually read words anymore.The knob also is not given any markings. I've seen instructions stating turn it towards the graphic, but since it's a potentiometer, both directions are towards the graphic.This aspect is especially important with JHS pedals because they seem to be the only pedal maker in history to reverse the pot orientations, like some of the Angry Charlie pots increase the value you turn the knob left.Nice helpful tool, I just wish it did not present confusion with the decision to not include any 'practical/useful' markings on the device.4Great buffer! And small! All jacks on 1 side of box. But the yellow power light is blinding.I recently put together a small pedal board that has 7 true bypass pedals on it. Combine those pedals with about 32 feet of cable from guitar to pedal board, the small patch cables, and then to the amp...and you get loss of top end, and loss of body, a.k.a. "tone suck". I was especially having issues when I combined my OCD overdrive pedal with my little Ibanez mini chorus pedal. Most of the other pedals seemed to play nice together...but I was getting weird results using these 2 pedals together. After doing some research online, it seemed like a buffer pedal is what I needed. I bought this JHS Little Black Buffer because it's small and because all of the jacks (input, output and power) are all on the same side of the box. I needed to have it that way due to the tight space issues on my board. So glad I got this pedal. It brings back the life to my tone, my top end is back, body is back, no issues at all stacking any pedals together. Works great! Taking 1 star off due to the nuclear powered yellow "on" light. Why so bright man? I'll have to put something over it to cover it up. Somewhat blinding.4Night and day difference in my tone clarity through an effects chain. Solves tone loss from true-bypass, wah, tuner, long cableThis little black box is the night and day difference in sound clarity in my effects chain. The end result is a brilliant clear tone pushed through my chain, especially noticed while in bypass, versus the infamous muffling many pedals cause. True bypass pedals are more popular than ever and while they're very purist-minded, even one pedal without a buffer will make you will lose tone clarity the same way a 40ft cable will, even if you have other pedals with buffers. Let's not forget the infamous wah pedal tone loss. My pedalboard contains all of the above types and I plug in this tiny out-of-the-way box at the beginning of the chain and BOOM, everything is as clear as a 10ft cable plugged directly into the amp. Don't waste time re-wiring pedals, risking damaging them and voiding their resale value. Give this very affordable solution a try. I'm very happy that I did.5Indispensable if you have long cable runs or a lot of pedals.Let me start by saying I love my pedals. I thought if you run as many pedals in series as I do (sixteen not including this guy, mostly true bypass) that tone degradation was just something I needed to accept unless I saved my money for one of those pedal boards that allow you to remove certain pedals from the series when bypassed. That is until I took the plunge and bought this buffer and placed it first in my signal chain straight from the guitar. It's like a blanket was removed from my tone. It's very much like I'm plugged straight into the amp and yet I'm still able to use my effects but in higher fidelity. If I had known this would breathe new life in to my tone to the degree it has, I would've gotten this buffer pedal years ago. It basically converts your guitar signal from a high impedance one (which causes significant tone loss when using long cables, patch cables, and pedals) to a low impedance one and injecting much needed life back into the signal. I highly recommend watching Pete Thorn's YouTube video on capacitance and the use of a buffer in your chain to overcome tone loss when using long cables and several pedals; he's incredibly knowledgeable in addition to being a great musician and guitar player). His video sold me on the need for a buffer, and boy was he right. While this is a bit pricy, JHS pedals are of exceptional quality and, in my opinion, are top of the line. If you use several guitar pedals in series (whether they're true bypass, hardwire bypass, true hardwire bypass, buffered bypass) and want to preserve the purity of your tone, this is essential.5Works great with my Vox AC30S1If you have an amp that is too loud for home use and has a built-in effects loop, this is your pedal!I have a Vox AC30S1 guitar amp. I love the sound of this amp but it is single-channel with no master volume control. The amp has an external speaker output where I could put something like a Two Notes Torpedo Captor reactive loadbox, but I would then be forced to use an additional speaker cab (or go directly into a PA) rather than the built-in speaker. I also considered using some kind of volume/boost/EQ pedal but I just wanted something simple that would lower the overall volume. The JHS Little Black Amp Box fit the bill perfectly!I chose this "pedal" because I knew JHS would build it right with the highest quality components and circuitry. Yeah, I could have built one of these myself (and I may still do that just for fun) but I wanted the assurance of knowing I was introducing only the highest quality components into my signal chain. I also liked the fact that this pedal was built as simply as possible. It has only a pot knob, an input, and an output. It is a passive pedal and you don't need a battery or any other power for it!NOTE: This pedal attenuates the preamp, not the power amp, so it probably won't work quite as well as something like the Two Notes Torpedo Captor. But if you're in a similar situation as me, this solution is simple, inexpensive, and works well!5Put it in front of the amp.I put this box after my pedal board, before the amp and it did exactly what I wanted it to do. Can crank my 85 watt all tube fender 65 twin reverb up very hot and keep the volume perfectly comfortable for bedroom use. It does take out a lot of the gain from the amp if you have the box turned down low though. Tube screamer pedal gives it a good crunch for classic rock or blues or leave it off for very clean tone. I use the fender in stereo with my Marshall, with the fender having all delay, reverb and tremolo and the Marshall is clean, crunch or lead only with no delay or reverb. Sounds good to me. Also I use a Mooer ocean machine for my delay and reverb and the box doesn t effect it hardly at all.5Tames the Hot Rod DeluxeI play a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, notorious for its incredibly loud volume, even at low setting. I use only the clean channel, getting distortion and dirt from pedals (EH Soul Food and Diamond 902). This pedal did just what I hoped it would do. Inserted in the Effects Loop, it works as a kind of master volume that brings the whole level down, without interfering with the distortion from the pedals. I would recommend this to anyone needing a similar application.5... been trying to achieve a raw guitar tone something like you'd hear on Blitz "All Out Attack" EPFor years I've been trying to achieve a raw guitar tone something like you'd hear on Blitz "All Out Attack" EP, The Stooges "Raw Power" or AC/DC "Let There Be Rock." By raw I mean not much distortion compared to modern high gain bro-metal amps, but still sounds like the tubes are moments away from catching on fire. This is the magic box that lets you crank the holy bejesus out of your tube amp, but without soccer stadium volume. It should work on any tube amp with an effects loop. I expected it to be made of chintzy plastic but it is a metal box with a pleasing weightiness in the hand. The volume dial is firm and similar in feel to an expensive guitar's volume or tone knobs. The volume level itself is easy to modulate even with the master volume on the amp turned all the way up; I only startled the dogs once. This is the best cheap guitar gadget I have ever purchased in 30 years of playing the 3 chords I know.5Cook your tubes at household volumeJust bought a Hot Rod Deluxe which is notorious for its linear volume knob. I popped this baby in the effects loop and now I can play at reasonable levels while still pushing the preamp tubes. I guess there s a few important things to know if you re interested in this so I ll get info as much as I can think of...This is a passive volume pedal. It s pretty much the same as having a passive volume pedal in your effects loop except you control volume with a knob instead of a rocker pedal. It doesn t need a power supply and uses a knob instead of a rocker. Technically you could just use a volume pedal if you don t want to spend the money on this.This pedal basically adds a master volume control to your amp which will let you get your preamp tubes cooking but not the power tubes. I like preamp distortion but if you re looking for power tube distortion you absolutely cannot get it with this. Only a load box or attenuator will allow you to get power amp distortion from your amp. This is absolutely not a substitute for an attenuator or load box.All that said, I love it. I ve got a 10 month old baby and a wife who (like most wives) isn t a big fan of hearing my amp echo through the house when I play. I would say I play at bedroom levels but everyone s definition of that is different. My bedroom level is slightly louder than what my 17 year old self would consider bedroom levels. Either way, I m able to play at a reasonable level and the amp sounds great. I m able to turn the amp up to between 6 and 8 which is my sweet spot for the Hot Rod Deluxe and I have this pedal set at about 2 and it s a great balance between being able to hear the amp s tone and having the level at a point where my wife can still hear it but it s low enough for her to tune it out and watch Twilight or whatever Harry Potter marathon is playing on TV.This is also a great tool for recording. A lot of people think that you can just send a line out from the effects loop to your interface and use an IR to record loud guitars but that s only half the story. Even your interface can be overwhelmed if your signal is too hot and you ll get clipping. If you re in a situation like that then this box will work regardless of whether you re using a tube amp or solid state.Bottom line: awesome for tube amps or amps without a master volume. This is a really easy circuit to build yourself like everyone says but forget that. I m happy to pay less than $40 to have it done for me by a reputable company and delivered within a day or two.5Nothing bad, but you couldn t turn it past volume 2 ...This thing really saved me. The amp I have is the Fender Deluxe IV and boy did it have some volume issues. Nothing bad, but you couldn t turn it past volume 2 without blowing your ears out. Once I figured out that it had a send/receive, I rushed to grab this. Now I can finally have the output I want without destroying my ears! It s amazing!!TL;DR, My amp was too loud and it helped quiet it all the while bringing out more sweet tone. Definitely worth the 5 stars and the 10/10 rating5
