The WILSON GAIN ONE buffer ensures your piezo pickup delivers a perfect performance.
It eliminates sound troubles and provides an undistorted powerful and hum-free signal, even when connected to long cables, effects or wireless systems.
A high impedance piezo pickup, such as the Wilson pickup, provides a powerful, clean, but very high impedance signal. That means it is sensitive to what kind of amplifier, mixer, preamp or pedal it is connected to.
If the input impedance of the device the pickup is connected to is low, it will act as a short circuit of the pickup, causing a weak and distorted sound.
By using a buffer between the pickup and the amplifier, you will avoid this problem, as the buffer has a very high input impedance, which does not load the pickup, and a very low output impedance, which is completely unaffected by what it is connected to.
Distortion will be avoided and the powerful signal from the pickup is retained.
Sensitivity to hum is additionally reduced due to the low output impedance of the buffer.
All piezo-based pickups are high impedance, and will work significantly better with a buffer, which provides an undistorted powerful and hum-free signal.
