Eldar over at EC Custom Shop (located in Israel) sent me a great email the other day. He wanted to let me know about an exciting product that they’re releasing on January 1, 2013 – The Super Switcher. Over the years, I’ve personally been interested in looper/switchers for my pedals. The idea of turning on multiple pedals with one click definitely makes the tap dance just a bit easier. Also, keeping pedals on dedicated true bypass loops will help with the overall guitar signal. The EC Custom Shop Super Switcher handles these requests very nicely, and I like the fact you can switch from presets to standard loop/switch easily… that’s a great feature!
Here is a break down of features on the EC Custom Shop Super Switcher
– 8 effect loops
– 7 mono and 1 stereo return for stereo pedals
– 7 X 3 presets for saving all presets easily
– 5 Amp control relay functions for controlling amp channels, FX, tap tempo and more.
– high quality input buffer selectable on\off for keeping the right tone when using long cables
– Tuner out for silent tuning and keeping the tuner out of the audio path
– Makes all your pedals true bypass
– Each preset can be set as program or manual specific control over pedal
Moreover the super switcher features a link option which will able the player to link 2 units for endless options:
1 – Put one backstage with all the pedals and amps and one of the stage front just as a controller to get clean stage operation
2 – Put one on the stage for your in front pedals and one back stage for your FX LOOP pedals
3 – Just to add more loops and controls
The super switcher will also be including a control output for the relay functions – together with custom amp cables that we make you could send only one cable to your amp – keeping the stage even cleaner.
The super switcher is the next evolution for easy programming your presets all can be done with your feet, the unit is built with the highest quality parts as we never save on parts.
