The Radial BigShot PB1 is a 100% discrete, class-A unity gain signal buffer designed for guitar and bass. Careful attention has been applied to ensure a very quiet operation, even while delivering up to 15dB of gain in boost mode. Drag™ Control load correction allows the user to adjust the impedance on the pickup for a much more natural sound and comfortable feel. All controls have been recessed in order to prevent accidental nudging during the performance. The PB1 is constructed using heavy duty 14-gauge steel to protect the sensitive electronics from outside stress which could reduce the lifespan. This is augmented with a heavy duty footswitch, steel shafted and encased potentiometers and glass-filled nylon connectors with nickel-silver contacts. Powering is done using a standard 9V supply.
