Are buffers specific for electric guitar or bass?

  1. I was looking at adding in this buffer for each channel of a Parallelyzer build from the same site for a bass pedalboard. Do I have to change anything to make these buffers work for bass, or do buffers take in the full frequency spectrum?

    It should be ok, if there were an issue it would be with the output capacitor. As long as the load resistance is more than about 400 Ohms (and normally it would be but I can't know what all you are going to drive with this buffer) the low end should cover a bass. Actually the amplifier itself probably can't drive anything much lower than 400 Ohms so there would be no point to making the output cap bigger. If the buffer can drive your load the cap is big enough.
