Clearlink Receive


Overview
The CLEARLINK RECEIVE ISO/CONVERTER is the ultimate big stage solution for all instruments where signal must travel longer than 15 to 20 feet. It’s most common application is receiving a buffered signal through long cabling from its companion product–the CLEARLINK SEND–at the tail end of a Pedal Board and converting the XLR balanced signal that transmits back to a ¼” unbalanced signal appropriately matched for feeding an instrument amplifier. It can also be used to combat “Ground Loops” or for any isolation job where shared grounds create noise problems, such as a multi-amp switching setup, as well as any balanced XLR to ¼” unbalanced conversion. Along with Stage applications, the CLEARLINK RECEIVE is also well suited for the Studio, enabling a very long cable run from the Control Room to the Cutting Room, where an amplifier might be mic’d. This CLEARLINK features a Studio Quality Buffer circuit and Isolation Transformer, Ground Lift as well as Phase Flip switches rounding out its feature set for either of the previously mentioned scenarios. With the ability to isolate and convert from most pro signal sources, it’s a must-have for the gigging musician or Stage Tech. For the ultimate Tone protection in a Guitar rig, use a STOWAWAY™ before the Pedal Board, the CLEARLINK™ SEND at the end of it, and a CLEARLINK RECEIVE at your amplifier for the conversion and total reclamation of Tone.

FAQs

Can I use the CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE as a DI-box?

  • Sorry, but it’s not a direct-box.

Can I use the CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE for re-amping?

  • Sorry, but it’s not a re-amp device.

What is “galvanic isolation” and does the CLEARLINK ™ RECEIVE have it?

  • Galvanic isolation is another term used to describe two circuits that are electrically and physically separated from one another, in order to prevent a ground loop from occurring, which results in hum and noise. All audio isolation transformers have/provide it; some manufacturers choose to use the term and others don’t, and just go with “isolated” or “isolation”. It’s all the same, so yes, the CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE has “galvanic isolation”, and it is provided by a specially designed and shielded audio isolation transformer.

Can I connect pedals between the CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE and the input of my amplifier?

  • You sure can, just remember to use a high quality shielded 1/4” TS instrument cable that is 5ft/1.5m long or less, between the CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE and the first pedal, in order to minimize high frequency roll-off.

Can I use the CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE without a CLEARLINK™ SEND to break a ground loop that is causing buzz, hum and noise?

  • Yes, the CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE can be used with unbalanced guitar signals from a wide variety of pedals and other buffered devices, to safely eliminate ground loop hum and noise, and to correct phase reverse issues, making it a must-have tool for every guitar player and technician. Just remember to use a high quality shielded 1/4” TS instrument cable that is 5ft/1.5m long or less, between the CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE and the input of your amplifier, in order to minimize high-frequency roll-off.

I am running multiple amplifiers, each with a CLEARLINK ™ RECEIVE, but my tone (still) sounds weird, why is that?

  • Running multiple amplifiers at once can sometimes lead to a phase cancellation problem, which results in a sound that can be described as hollow, thin, not as loud, lacking low end or fullness... The best way to test and fix this is to try and set the amplifiers to the same volume level, individually. Then activate the amplifiers simultaneously and listen with the PHASE switch of each CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE in both positions, all possible combinations - the best, correct settings will result in a sound that can be described as fuller or slightly louder.

I am running multiple amplifiers, each with a CLEARLINK ™ RECEIVE, but (one or) some of them (still) have a buzz/hum, how can I get rid of it?

  • First, make sure that all the amplifiers are properly grounded with a 3-prong AC power-cord plug! Older amplifiers with 2-prong AC power-cord plugs should be checked for proper grounding, and if necessary, serviced before using them in a guitar rig. Defeating an amplifier’s safety ground may not only be ILLEGAL, but it may also pose a SHOCK or ELECTROCUTION HAZARD. That said, and as you’re probably already aware, the most common cause of buzz, hum, and noise when connecting multiple amplifiers in the same rig, is a ground loop. The isolation transformer inside the CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE and its GROUND switch, work together to safely eliminate a ground loop. With a CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE connected to the input of every amplifier in the rig, the GROUND switch on ONLY one CLEARLINK ™ RECEIVE should be set to the “IN” position, so it can “pass” its earth ground reference to any pedals, and the guitar. The GROUND switch on ALL the remaining CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE’s should be set to the “OUT” position, to eliminate the ground loops that would otherwise form. Try setting each GROUND switch to the “IN” position, individually, and use the combination which results in the least amount of buzz, hum and noise.
  • Second, remember that any device which contains an audio isolation transformer is susceptible to hum from the magnetic field generated by a power transformer, such as those found in an amplifier, effect processor, “wall-wart” power adapter or universal pedalboard power supply. Even with adequate shielding of the audio transformer and the device itself, there can still be a potential for unexpected hum. So if an unusual hum does occur, which cannot be eliminated by either position of a GROUND switch, try re-locating the CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE. Typically it would only require being moved a short distance in a particular direction to resolve this type of hum.

Clearlink Send


Overview
The CLEARLINK™ (SEND) LINE DRIVER is designed to compensate for losses in Tone due to increased capacitance in long cable runs. With a high quality buffer and +12dB of available output gain, it has the ability to drive cable runs of up to 330 Ft./100M before noticeable degradation, when added in-line on the feed from Pedal Board to Amplifier. When combined with a STOWAWAY™ INPUT BUFFER on the Instrument, the CLEARLINK SEND forms an “Effects Loop” for the Instrument-Pedal Board-Amp signal chain that will reclaim the integrity of your sound through boosted levels and buffering or impedance matching. Whether used by itself, or with the STOWAWAY as a comprehensive “Front End” solution, it will provide the needed “stable impedance source” to ensure the pieces in your rig “communicate” well. It can be used for balanced signals via two different output jacks; standard 3-pin XLR or ¼” TRS. It also supports unbalanced signals via the standard ¼” mono jack. If you’re going to send your signal on a marathon, make sure you have a clear link to communicate… because you don’t want your Tone lost in translation.

FAQs

Can I use the CLEARLINK™ SEND BUFFER/BALANCED LINE-DRIVER for my bass?

  • Yes you can!

I’m using a switched-mode power adapter/supply (SMPS) and hear a high pitch “whine”, why is that?

  • Some of these SMPS adapters are noisier than others, especially those that aren’t from a reputable or brand-name MI manufacturer. Another reason could be that you’re trying to run to many devices from a single adapter. Though many of them have a high current output and tout being able to power many devices, doing so can result in the development and/or increase of noise, for some reason. If this is happening, we recommend either trying another adapter, or better yet - using a universal pedalboard power supply with enough isolated outputs to power every device on your pedalboard individually; better power = less noise = more tone!

What’s the maximum length of cable that the CLEARLINK ™ SEND BUFFER/BALANCED LINE-DRIVER can drive?

  • It’s capable of driving up to a 330ft/100m balanced cable run to a CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE ISO/CONVERTER with great noise immunity and signal integrity. A shielded instrument cable run that is unbalanced would need to be significantly shorter, with its maximum length determined by the construction quality of the cable and/ or how “noisy” the venue is where the gear is being used. As mentioned elsewhere; “...when using shielded 1/4” TS instrument cables, always aim for the best quality and shortest length possible…”

Why wasn’t a transformer isolated output provided, for splitting or ground loop elimination applications?

  • A transformer isolated output was not included in the design for several very good reasons; (i) fact is, the noise immunity and signal integrity provided by a specially designed and shielded audio isolation transformer at the end of a long cable run is far more superior than that provided by a transformer at the beginning, worst-case is it’s just as good (ii) we know from previous buffer/splitter designs that not everyone makes use of a transformer isolated output; so instead of including a great, and very expensive transformer, and of course having to charge for it - we made it optional via our passive CLEARLINK™ RECEIVE ISO/CONVERTER (iii) as the primary design goal of the CLEARLINK™ SEND BUFFER/BALANCED LINE-DRIVER was to provide one of the two constants in every guitar rig, the amplifier, with a resolute source; simple, but very important (iv) pedalboard real estate - specially designed and shielded audio isolation transformers are not small, so you won’t see (or hear them) in any sub-compact buffers (v) finally, experience has also taught us that a good number of people who start off with signal splitting, soon wish or opt for devices that provide them with the ability to split AND switch each output on and off individually

Can I plug my guitar directly into the CLEARLINK™ SEND BUFFER/BALANCED LINE-DRIVER, using it as an input buffer at the start of my pedalboard?

  • Theoretically you could, but we have another device which is much better suited as a guitar input buffer, the STOWAWAY ™ INPUT BUFFER. It is a 100% discrete Class-A circuit with an input impedance and other finely tuned characteristics which mimic that of a high quality tube amplifier, and it includes an RFI filter to minimize the possibility of radio-frequency interference and noise. It presents a dynamically ideal load to a guitar that remains steadfast, resulting in a tone that is consistent, while still allowing the guitar to breathe, live, and react - like plugging directly into the front of a tube amplifier. Alternatively, we also have a two-in-one device called the HIGH-WIRE™ DUAL BUFFER / OUTPUT BOOST which includes both circuits, plus a boost and tuner mute. Using the CLEARLINK™ SEND BUFFER/BALANCED LINEDRIVER in tandem with a STOWAWAY™ INPUT BUFFER resolves the deep-rooted signal loss and inconsistent tone issues faced by guitarists due to; capacitive loading, impedance loading and mismatching, and changes to a pickup’s resonant frequency/peak, as a result of varying effect pedals and interconnecting cables. They accomplish this by providing the two constants in every guitar rig, the guitar and amplifier, with a resolute load and source, via the STOWAWAY™ and the CLEARLINK™, respectively. The two form an effects loop, which segregates the guitar and amplifier from the variables on a pedalboard, easily handles many pedals, interconnecting cables, and effortlessly drives a long cable run to the back-line amplifier, either balanced or unbalanced. As a result, the only variations in sound and tone will be from the actual effect of the pedals on the pedalboard, and not from a guitar or amplifier related loading or impedance mismatch issue.

Five-Band Graphic EQ Pedal


Overview:
Boogie® Five-Band Graphic - Legendary “Boogie” 5-Band Graphic EQ in a Pedal! For well over four decades now the Boogie Five Band Graphic EQ has been at the heart of chart topping guitar sounds and it’s hard to ignore the impact its now-classic “V-Curve” has had on modern guitar sounds and popular music. Now we offer this powerful tool in a stand alone pedal format that packs the same shaping power and hand-built in Petaluma, CA quality as those found in our high-end amplifiers.

In the early ’70s Boogie® sounds were most associated with singing, vocal-inspired lead work as Artists learned the newfound possibilities of its high gain tube preamp and it’s game-changing sustain. The Graphic EQ aboard most fully loaded “Hun-Revs” of the day found their sliders set for a subtle widening effect or enhanced Bass response to mimic bigger cabinets with the little 1x12 combo. As the era of Classic Rock faded and the dawn of Metal appeared on the horizon in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, the potential power of this on-board tool began to be fully realized. Graphic-loaded MARK II™ Boogies became the norm and most of these on-board EQs were used to scoop the mids to extreme levels while boosting lows and highs and this “V-Curve” became a new standard... the “other sound” (non-Brit) in Hard Rock and Metal.

Since then MARK III™, MARK IV™ and MARK V™ Boogies all have their place in Rock history through iconic Artists and the Graphic EQ has been an integral part of their sound. The Five Band Graphic EQ aboard the current MARK V Boogie is again at the forefront of emerging styles as a whole new generation crafts their own unique brand of heavy sounds in Djent and Nu-Metal genres. Now we’re proud to introduce the stand-alone Pedal version of this piece of Rock history built with the same quality parts and handmade in our Petaluma facility. Now you can incorporate this powerful shaping tool into any setup (including non-guitar applications) whether in the Front End or in an Effects Loop and create your own unique signature Tones. The same long-throw Sliders are used to achieve maximum resolution and finite adjustment. Both INPUT and OUTPUT LEVEL Controls are fitted to ensure optimum matching of both your Source and Destination regardless of your application. Whether used in front of your amplifier’s Input or in your Effects Loop, it gives you a footswitchable Tone option you can employ on demand. And when it’s not engaged, your sound is pure and unaltered thanks to the Hard Bypass Feature.

The Boogie Five Band Graphic runs on one 9 Volt battery and can also be powered by a standard DC Wall Transformer. Now this affordable package brings the power of the Boogie Five Band Graphic and its classic “V-Curve” Tone–as well as near-limitless other Tone possibilities–to players of all experience levels, musical needs and amplifier brands in a small pedal board-friendly format that’s hand-built in the USA using the finest materials. Boogie-ize your rig!

Can I use the HIGH-WIRE™ DUAL BUFFER/OUTPUT BOOST for my bass?

  • Yes you can!

I’m using a switched-mode power adapter/supply (SMPS) and hear a high pitch “whine”, why is that?

  • Some of these SMPS adapters are noisier than others, especially those that aren’t from a reputable or brand-name MI manufacturer. Another reason could be that you’re trying to run to many devices from a single adapter. Though many of them have a high current output and tout being able to power many devices, doing so can result in the development and/or increase of noise, for some reason. If this is happening, we recommend either trying another adapter, or better yet - using a universal pedalboard power supply with enough isolated outputs to power every device on your pedalboard individually; better power = less noise = more tone!

What’s the maximum length of cable I can use between my guitar and the HIGH-WIRE™ DUAL BUFFER/OUTPUT BOOST’s input?

  • Always aim for the best quality and shortest length possible shielded 1/4” TS instrument cable between the guitar and buffer, but also keep in mind that zero capacitance is not ideal, or practical. It’s safe to say that there’s no way a pickup has been designed without expecting there to be some length of cable, and therefore capacitance, hanging off the output of a guitar. A certain amount of cable capacitance is good, and necessary! We’re not trying to eliminate it, but we are trying to control and prevent it from changing unexpectedly. So if you can afford it, experiment with a variety of brands and lengths, to fine-tune the tone, until you find what suits your tone best! There’s no one-size-fits-all cable length, but generally speaking shorter cables will yield a brighter tone, and longer cables will yield a darker tone. Once again the key is consistency, so when you’ve made your choice, always use the same cable.

I would like to use a vintage fuzz pedal, but have been told that they don’t work well with buffered signals, is this true?

  • These pedals will function and sound differently when connected directly to the guitar because they are meant to be fed with a high-impedance signal source, as opposed to a low-impedance signal source, which is why they need to be used first in the signal path. It’s recommended that such pedals either be modified with true-bypass switching, if not already so equipped, or used in conjunction with a true-bypass loop-box to ensure the pedal is completely bypassed when not in use.

Where exactly is the MUTE circuit located within the HIGH-WIRE™ DUAL BUFFER/OUTPUT BOOST?

  • The MUTE circuit is located at the SEND jack. This allows for any time-based effect pedals such as a delay, echo and/or reverb, to trail-off naturally when the MUTE is activated, instead of ending abruptly.

What’s the maximum length of cable that the HIGHWIRE ™ DUAL BUFFER/OUTPUT BOOST can drive?

  • Cable runs to a back-line amplifier between 20-100ft should not be an issue, but ultimately the maximum length will be determined by the construction quality of the cable and/or how “noisy” the venue is where the gear is being used. As mentioned elsewhere; “...when using shielded 1/4” TS instrument cables, always aim for the best quality and shortest length possible…”

Can I use the HIGH-WIRE™ DUAL BUFFER/OUTPUT BOOST as a 3-way splitter for two amps and a tuner?

  • You certainly can, but keep in mind that under some circumstances, the drive capabilities of the SEND and TUNER jacks might not be as robust as the OUTPUT jack. Additionally, the SEND, TUNER and OUTPUT jacks are not transformer isolated, so it would be necessary to use a CLEARLINK™ CONVERTER/ISO TRANSFORMER in front of one amplifier, to prevent the hum and noise that would occur as a result of the ground loop that’s always created when running multiple amplifiers.

Why wasn’t a transformer isolated output provided, for splitting or ground loop elimination applications?

  • A transformer isolated output was not included in the design for several very good reasons; (i) fact is, the noise immunity and signal integrity provided by a specially designed and shielded audio isolation transformer at the end of a long cable run is far more superior than that provided by a transformer at the beginning, worst-case is it’s just as good (ii) we know from previous buffer/splitter designs that not everyone makes use of a transformer isolated output; so instead of including a great, and very expensive transformer, and of course having to charge for it - we made it optional via our passive CLEARLINK™ CONVERTER/ISO TRANSFORMER (iii) the primary utilitarian design goal of the HIGH-WIRE™ DUAL BUFFER/OUTPUT BOOST was to provide the two constants in every guitar rig, the guitar and amplifier, with a resolute load and source, via its input buffer and output line-driver, respectively (iv) pedalboard real estate - specially designed and shielded audio isolation transformers are not small, so you won’t see (or hear them) in any sub-compact buffers (v) finally, experience has also taught us that a good number of people who start off with signal splitting, soon wish or opt for devices that provide them with the ability to split AND switch each output on and off individually.

Rosette Acoustic DI Preamplifier


Overview:
Capture Your Acoustic’s Tone with Detail and Clarity Like Never Before.

Introducing the new Rosette™ Acoustic DI Preamplifier for home, studio or stage.

When we turned our eyes and ears toward amplifying acoustic sounds, one thing more than any other stood out as an objective; Do No Harm. In its sincerity and perfection, there is no reason to “enhance” the sound of the acoustic guitar, or any other acoustic instrument for that matter, but rather… just reproduce it.

Introducing the Rosette™ DI, an Acoustic Instrument Direct Interface that puts accurate reproduction at the top of the list, and yet, also offers comprehensive shaping power for enhancement when you might need it.

We start with the same Front End and EQ circuitry used in our Rosette™ 300 Two:Eight Combo, minus the Mic Input. Both products’ circuit design is derived from high end recording console design. This no-compromise approach ensures the purest signal path and lowest noise specs while at the same time insuring detailed, rich musicality and unrivaled accuracy.

As you would expect on any pro console, both Input Gain and Phase are addressed in the INPUT control and PHASE switch. A wide range of high impedance pickups are handled easily with the optimized, current source-biased FET input stage. The Phase relation between pickup output and whatever speakers are being driven can be addressed by flipping the PHASE switch on the Rosette DI for easy comparison to decrease or eliminate feedback or even improve your overall tone.

From there we’ve included two additional sweep-able Filters to assist with feedback elimination in the live performance environment. NOTCH FILTER cuts a chosen frequency in a narrow band to remove resonant frequencies that cause feedback. This Filter removes those frequencies as it is rotated clockwise. The HI-PASS is also a Filter that cuts frequencies in the sub-harmonic range as it is turned clock-wise. This is very helpful in both eliminating unwanted low frequency feedback on stage as well as tightening up the low-end for specific instruments or musical styles.

A footswitchable BOOST is incorporated for increasing the level of certain musical sections like solos or anyplace a level increase is needed. The BOOST LEVEL sets the amount of BOOST when the BOOST switch is engaged. Additionally a footswitchable MUTE is also included which mutes the signal at the Rear Panel outputs but does not mute the side TUNER Output, enabling you to employ silent tuning between songs.

The fully professional EQ Section incorporates fixed shelving BASS and TREBLE controls plus two semi-parametric MID bands covering LOW and HIGH midrange frequencies. These can overlap for finite control over adjacent midrange frequencies or one might be used to combat feedback while the other is applied for Tone shaping duties.

Experience the new Rosette DI Preamp. The result of 48 years of definitive amp design and a focus to deliver the most accurate reproduction of your instrument’s acoustic sound possible in amplification.
