It's a Tiger copy (cocobolo/maple/cocobolo sandwich) made by Bill Asher in Santa Monica.

What is the general battery life with this thing ? Do you need to take the battery out between uses ? Or unplug the guitar ? Do you put a new bettery in for gigs etc. ?
Thanks for the help

Always unplug the guitar and the battery should last for many months (if you have it wired correctly so the guitar cable acts as kill switch when you unplug it). I like to check the battery charge with a meter every few months.

Based on some loose calculations, using a Duracell for example, you can probably expect around 75 hours of runtime with this buffer. With an industrial type battery like the Energizer Industrial, then maybe an additional 30% of runtime. So maybe 20 to 30 gigs or so.

Just got this from Jeff Mattson of DSO.

"I currently have your TPC1 Preamp Buffer in both of my main guitars. My newest guitar has the smaller version (TPC1sm) and it was a real easy fit. I love how sweet and clear and natural the sound is. It does a great job of driving my effects loop and keeping a perfectly even tone at any volume. Thanks for accurately re-creating Jerry's Tiger guitar buffer for the rest of us to enjoy." Jeff Mattson, Dark Star Orchestra
