This comes from the John Neff Maui Recorders collection and was sold to us as part of his retirement.
In Perfect working and Very Good cosmetic condition.
It’s a killer sounding boost that can be used on two amps at the same time.
This listing is for a rare and vintage Rivera / Professional Music Products (PMP) Buf V pedal. These pedals are very highly regarded and feature a signal buffer, an A/B selector, and a gain knob for clean boost. It is a perfect pedal to place at the end of your chain to get your tone back. Additionally, you can use it to switch between amps and it can drive them hard if desired! It is extremely rugged, well-built and well-designed.

The Rivera brand is most famous for its very high quality amplifiers. It is offering new effect pedals these days but this one dates back from the 80’s. These days boosters, loopers and A/B boxes are quite popular and Paul Rivera was quite a precursor by offering all three functions into one pedal. This buffer came on the market in many disguises: PMP buffer E945, PMG buffer E945, Rivera Buf IV and V. It is battery or mains powered and has a heavy and durable diecast chassis. Rivera also offered simpler versions like A/B boxes or simple loopers, and even used the box for its M-series and S-series amplifiers’ footswitches.
The circuit of the E945 is very simple with a single op-amp taking care of the buffing and boosting duties, while the loop is post-buffer/booster. The pedal works really well and the amount of ultra-clean boost is quite staggering with an internal symmetrical supply of +/-12 volts. This E945 is ideal with a twin channel Blackface/Silverface amp or with a two amp setup giving a pseudo 4 channel rig with one simple pedal.
( Due to people taking advantage of eBay / Reverb return policies; wanting to “try out and/or pilfer parts” we can no longer take returns on used gear unless it arrives damaged. Sorry for this inconvenience. We test and guarantee all gear to be 100% working unless stated otherwise )
