Silver Box Booster

Silver Box Booster

“This goes to 20…” The natural extension of the guitar volume knob.
Silver Box Booster offers up to 22 dB of clean boost, a natural overdrive respectful of all executive nuances and a highly musical EQ. Moreover all that, it keeps the instrument tone colour unaltered.
From clean and bright sounds to highly dynamic crunch tones and from robust full-spectrum sounds to tones that strongly cut through the mix, Silver Box provides an “in your face” sound full of character and presence.
The perfect multi-tool for the professional musician.

Silver Box Booster comes from the collaboration between Nemphasis and musician/session player/producer/friend Marco Tafelli.

The Silver Box pedal is now an essential part of my rig. It's as at home boosting my drive pedals into ultimate saturation as it is adding muscle to clean or compressed tones. The onboard eq is great for dialling in the sweet spot for different guitars or applications and is far more musical than other eq loaded boost pedals I've used. My search for the perfect boost pedal is finally over.

Cleary the product of witchcraft, this pedal takes your sound and simply make it better! The Silver Box Booster is so much more than simply a clean boost, giving you huge tonal options and everything from clean sparkle to mild distortion coupled with all the boost any sane person could possibly desire...

Molti usano il booster per alzare il volume, e per questo ce ne sono tanti e sono tutti uguali; ma quando invece vuoi semplicemente arricchire il suono senza snaturarlo,in questo caso non sono tutti uguali . Questo pedale dimostra la qualità e la cura nel dettagli con cui sono progettati i pedali nemphasis. Io uso il Silver Box per dare più corpo e pochi db in più al mio strumento ed utilizzandolo in catena con il “White Scream” ottengo tutti i suoni che voglio senza che quasi l’ascoltatore capisca che ho un booster.

Z-PRO Buffer

Z-PRO Buffer

nemphasis shop now
Impedance adapter, buffer, for professional use. The Z-PRO, connected between instrument and amplifier or effects chain is able to keep unaltered the tone colour of the instrument thanks to a perfect impedance matching. Particularly useful when the connection between instrument and amplifier/mixer is considerably long (over 4 m) or the effects chain is composed of true bypass pedals.
The Z-PRO Buffer does not need to be activated, as it does not introduce gain but only adjusts the impedance. Therefore it is recommended to keep it permanently switched on.Thanks to its small size (38 X 92 mm) it can be included into any pedalboard.

The Z-pro is such a nice compact size, it fitted straight onto my pedal board and hardly takes up any space. Great little pedal for clearing up the signal chain and eliminating any unwanted noise.

 

Analog is Better!

  • Burr Brown buffer used in Hi-End audio devices.
  • Small size.
  • Supply voltage up to 18 VDC.

I've been incredibly impressed by the VT-Comp - it's subtle, dynamic and extremely musical in its response. It's not leaving my board any time soon.

A list of just a few of the current pedal type compressors that I own. The first Compressor that I ever owned, an original 1976 MXR Dyna Comp, a Keely 2, and 4 knob comp, a Pigtronix Tone Comp, a Wampler Ego Comp, a Carl Martin Comp, 2 Xotic SP Comps, an Electro-Harmonix Soul Preacher, an MXR Custom Comp, and Super Comp, an EBS MultiComp, and a Rivera Sustain Shaman. However, the Nemphasis VT-COMP is hands down the most transparent, and musical pedal compressor that I've ever tried.

Liquid Mind Analog Chorus

Liquid Mind Analog Chorus

The analog Chorus with an enveloping sound, smooth and never extreme, obtained thanks to the employment of a Bucket Brigade device, accomplished with an accurate LF oscillator and a choice of the best electronic components available. Particular attention has been dedicated to the layout of the circuit with the aim of fully eliminating the sound of the “click noise” derived from the LFO.
In addition to the classic controls of DEPTH and SPEED there is also the adjustment of the tone “COLOR” of the effected signal.

Imagine the Chorus that blends with your sound to become the sound and not just part of it…
Imagine the Chorus with an elegant and smooth sound…
Imagine the Chorus that with your overdrive does not sound aggressive but maintains a natural musicality never heard before…
Now switch the Chorus on…it’s the Liquid Mind.
