Get the effects you want without trashing your tone! On a traditional pedalboard, even when the effects are off, your signal still goes through numerous tone-trashing buffers, solid-state switches and patch cables. Pedal Switcher™ uses 4 true bypass loops to send your signal only to the pedals you’re using. Built with the finest gold relays sealed in nitrogen, your tone will stay pure and dynamic no matter what kind or how many pedals you use.
With Pedal Switcher™, you can use all those great classic and modern stompboxes without destroying that pure straight to amp sound. Now you have the freedom to use any pedals you want, and never have to worry that the buffer in your overdrive is killing your vintage fuzz!
Pedal Switcher™ features 4 instant access switches, buffered and non-buffered inputs, and a TRS insert for putting devices like a volume pedal between effects. Loops can also be used as a mute for silent tuning onstage, and A/B amp switching. Add a Commander and you can control an unlimited number of Pedal Switcher units allowing you to store combinations of pedals. Check out Commander here.

There have been some amazing stompbox effects made in the last 40 years. Unfortunately, a lot of those classic pedals don’t have true bypass switching. These examples show you what some of our favorite classic pedals sound like when they’re bypassed using their internal circuitry.
The original Fuzz Face is one of the most treasured guitar sounds in music thanks to the groundbreaking work of Jimi Hendrix. Jimi always had the perfect blend of clear punchy rhythm and warm sounding leads. In fact, most of this was done by just riding the guitar’s volume control with the Fuzz Face on. The problems start when you try to incorporate more modern gear like Boss and Ibanez pedals into this classic Fuzz Face to Marshall amp setup. In this test, we’ve replaced the Tube Driver with a vintage Tube Screamer that uses an internal buffered bypass circuit.
Sound better, stomp less, play more! Using Pedal Switcher, you can get your old effects out of the junk drawer and back on your pedalboard in minutes without ruining the rest of your sound! Plus with Commander, you can switch your effects and amps in an instant! From using vintage transistor classics to modern digital marvels, you’ll be able to make your ultimate rig with the tones you’ve always wanted without sacrificing anything!
