Earthquaker Swiss Things Pedalboard Reconciler
Two True Bypass Effect Loops, and other tools for enhancing your pedalboard |Item ID: EQDSWIS
Swiss Things is an all-in-one pedalboard reconciliation solution designed to really tie your rig together without resorting to some confusing loop-switching contraption bigger than a meatball party sub that eats up the entire bottom row of your board and kind-of-but-not-quite does what you need it to do.
Swiss Things combines two true-bypass Flexi-Switch™ enabled effects loops, a Flexi-Switch™ AB-Y box with transformer isolation between outputs, a buffered tuner output, 20dB of clean boost, an expression pedal output for volume control, and a quiet, high headroom output buffer into a compact pedalboard-friendly signal routing junction box that lives at the top-right corner of your pedalboard without causing any signal loss.
The two effects loops (labeled Loop 1 and Loop 2) come equipped with EarthQuaker Devices’ proprietary Flexi-Switch™ Technology which allows latching- and/or momentary-style switching to be used with any effects pedal on the market. Loop 1 is unbuffered for use with fuzz, overdrive, distortion, boost, vintage pedals, or anything else with low input impedance and requires direct interaction with your pickups. Loop 2 is buffered and is intended for use with time-based and modulation effects.
A buffered tuner output removes your tuner from the signal chain, allowing users to stay in tune without tone loss. The Volume EXP jack allows for expression pedal control of volume without volume pedal-related tone-suck and is located after the “dirt” effects loop (Loop 1) to change levels without affecting gain.
