The Sunrise Preamp Buffer Box is a line matching device designed specifically to access the coupling feature built into Sunrise Pickups. They provide the pickup signal with 12dB of gain, high resolution, and impedance matching capabilities. The active 18 volt Bi-Polar powered circuit eliminates pickup loading and line loss due to long cable runs, and also delivers up to 4 years of battery life with 2) 9 volt Eveready Alkaline batteries.

The S-B1 is a mono version, although it has two 1/4" parallel output jacks (Sunrise and Aux) which allow the same signal to be sent to two separate sources. AUX is on RIGHT as you look at 2 jack output side (I will mark this clearly, the label has faded).

The S-B1 produces the widest frequency response possible from a battery powered preamp, and allows the Sunrise Pickup to operate at its full design capabilities. 


Input impedance: 1 megohm 
Maximum output level: +15Dbv. 
Frequency response: 10-40kHz + or - 3dB 
Battery consumption: 150 microamps 
Dimensions: 4 5/8" X 2 5/8" X 1 3/16"
