The Plush “Pure Gain” pedal is a unique product co-designed by Nelson Pass (a noted high end audio Designer) and Andy Fuchs. It uses a unique circuit topology which uses high gain FET’s, for lowest noise and the warmest tube like sound possible.
The Plush Pure Gain Pedal. The name says it all!
A unique circuit topology unlike anything currently on the market, the Pure Gain gives up to 25db of gain (that’s about a 20 times increase in your guitars output level), with an astoundingly low noise floor. By using selected and matched devices in the circuit, premium parts throughout, we have what we believe may be the quietest gain boost on the market.
Besides a true hard-wire passive bypass, the gain control allows you to use Pure Gain as an active buffer, which converts your signal from a high impedance input to a low impedance output. Excellent for driving long cables, driving a pedal board, or use it to drive an overdrive pedal or amplifier into searing high gain territory. Excellent for raising single coil pickups to humbucker levels. A small footprint allows easily fitting it into most pedal boards easily.
This pedal incorporates a solid aluminum enclosure, a durable powder coated finish, premium passive components, metal shaft controls, and is backed by a five year warranty.
The unit is activated when a standard 1/4” guitar cable is plugged into the input jack. If using this unit on battery power, the guitar cable should be unplugged when it’s not in use, to extend battery life.
The Plush “Pure Gain” can be used as both an active buffer, and as a gain booster. When the control is in its lowest position, the pedal is operating in unity gain mode, which means the input signal and output signals are identical in strength. The advantage of keeping the unit on, in unity gain mode, is the signal from your instrument is buffered. This means its output impedance is much lower than its original 1- Meg ohm value. In unity gain mode the “Pure Gain” provides a 1-K output impedance, which is ideal for driving long cable runs or pedals with low input impedance. As the gain control is increased, the booster adds gain only as required. Unlike other boosters which produce full gain at all times and simply lower it with a volume control “Pure Gain” truly adjusts its gain, which makes it the quietest booster made today. It also allows you to use only as much gain as you choose, keeping noise as low as possible.
When set at maximum gain, “Pure Gain” provides up to 20-db of gain for any input signal. Its input impedance is 1-Meg, which is suitable for most any guitar or keyboard input. It has an extremely high overload point, which means, should you hear any distortion, you are either overloading the input of the pedal, or the pedal has increased the signal level to the point of overloading the amplifier, pedal, or device it’s feeding.
The Plush “pure Gain” provides a hard wire bypass, which means when not in use (LED not lit) the input is connected directly to the output, with no loading of the signal, and no active devices in the signal path. The DC jack on the side is a standard 2.1 mm tip negative adaptor input. A Plush DC adaptor may be purchased from your local dealer or any standard Roland style (or similar) DC adaptor may be used. The output of the adaptor must be 9-Volts DC.
