Description
 
Buffers are currently out of stock
This no-gain tube-buffer adds additional resolution and the softness of tubes.  There are no quieter or more versatile buffers in the industry than those by Gary Dodd.  He charges over $1,000 for a stand-alone buffer; we've teamed up to make this an affordable option for Virtue owners.  The mod includes a switch that allows you to enable or defeat the buffer.  The switch is on the inside, by the volume control PCB and requires removing the cover.

They ship with the JJ 12-AX7 tubes but you can roll almost most any 12v tube that fits.  Here are some we've tried:

12AX7
5751
7025
CV4004
E83CC
ECC83
ECC803
12AU7
5814
5963
6189
CV4003
E82CC
ECC82
ECC802
12AT7
6201
6679
CV4024
E81CC
ECC81
ECC801

Please note that we provide an option to upgrade your caps at the same time.  The Auricaps on the M901 are excellent and we don't recommend a complete cap replacement, although adding Sonicap Platinum bypass caps will offer sonic improvements especially when running the amp full-range.  The last picture on this page shows the full replacement option which M451 customers may choose.  The black caps on top are the "Platinum" bypass caps.

After placing your order, please ship your amp (fully insured) back to Gary Dodd, 2606 Maple Drive, Garland TX 75042.  We will return it to you at the address specified here.  The upgrade is registered in the system as 15 lbs, roughly the weight of Sensation.  So when you pay for shipping on this buffer upgrade, you're paying for return shipping on your Sensation.  Please remove column caps (if you have the designer version with columns) and slide off the tops (remove the fastener screws on the back first) before sending it back to us to save on weight and avoid damage.
