The Mesa Boogie Hirewire is an incredibly powerful tool that fixes both your input and output issues that are faced when you have long cable runs and large pedalboards. With two buffers, an input line boost as well as a tuner output this singe pedal can make sure you are getting the most out of your gear no matter where you are set up.
Two Stage Buffer
To get this set up an improve your tone you just plug your guitar in to the input, your amp in to the output and your pedalboard in the SND and RTN sections. This then buffers both ends of the chain meaning that even if your signal issues are two much for one buffer the Highwire will fix your issue.
Also in this pedal you have a foot-switchable boost mode you can push your rig just that little bit harder or makeup for a little bit of lost volume from compressors and similar pedals. A good clean boost is a must in most rigs so why not get one built right in to a buffer saving on space.
Here's what Mesa say about the Highwire Dual Buffer
The HIGHWIRE is the ultimate all-in-one pedalboard signal loss remedy that addresses both Input and Output challenges in the same space saving chassis. Between instrument and pedals, it provides a stable, consistent load for your guitar's pickups, ensuring your signal arrives at the first pedal intact and full of Tone. From pedalboard to the amplifier, it not only buffers the signal, ensuring optimum impedance loading and performance, but also allows for increased signal levels for extra-long cable runs via the built-in Line Driver.
