EarthQuaker Devices Swiss Things

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 and ties your rig together without any signal loss.

Features:

- Use as many pedals as you'd like without tone-suck
- Quickly and easily bypass all your pedals with one click
- Use Flexi-Switch Technology with every pedal in your setup
- Eliminate volume pedal tone-suck by using any expression pedal to control volume
- Use multiple amps without phase issues, ground loops, or extra noise
- Tidy up your rig, shorten cable runs, and reduce tone loss by keeping all inputs and outputs in one location

zZounds is an authorized dealer of EarthQuaker Devices products.

Here's what the footswitches do:
- Loop 1: Press this to engage Loop 1. It features Flexi-Switch Technology and is unbuffered for use with all distortion, overdrive, and fuzz pedals, or anything else that doesn't like being buffered.
- Loop 2: Press this to engage Loop 2. It also features Flexi-Switch Technology and is buffered for use with time-based effects (delay, reverb, modulation, etc.).
- Note: when nothing is plugged into Loop 2, it functions as a mute.
- Boost: press this to activate the boost. It is Flexi-Switch Technology enabled and provides up to 20dB of clean boost post-effects loops and is intended for use as an output booster.
- A/B selects between Output A and Output B.
- Note: Output B is transformer-isolated and includes a Phase switch for use with pedals and/or amplifiers which invert phase.
- Both activates Output A and Output B at the same time and features Flexi-Switch Technology.
- Here's what the input, output, send, return, and expression jacks are for:
- Input: plug your instrument in here.
- If you have any "always-on" pedals (compressors, preamps, EQs, etc.) place them before Swiss Things' input.
- Loop 1 Send: Plug this into the input of the first pedal in the overdrive/distortion/fuzz section of your board.
- Loop 1 Return: Plug the output of the last pedal of the overdrive/distortion/fuzz section into this jack.
- Loop 2 Send: Plug this into the input of the first pedal in the modulation section of your board.
- Loop 2 Return: Plug the output of the last pedal of your modulation section into this jack.
- Tuner Output: Connect this to the input of your tuner.
- To avoid extra noise, your tuner must always be turned on when connected to Swiss Things.
- Volume EXP: Connect any expression pedal to this output to control volume.
- Most volume pedals create "tone-suck" by loading the signal down and have limited travel. This solves that problem with a buffered output and allows you to use any expression pedal with the same results. The expression jack is placed after the "dirt" effects loop (Loop 1) which allows you to change volume levels without affecting gain.
- Output A: connect this to the input of your amplifier.
- Output B: connect this to the input of a separate amplifier to use multiple amps and/or to play in stereo.
- Note: to use Swiss Things with stereo effects, they should be placed after Outputs A & B and both outputs must be selected using the Both switch.
- Note: Output B is transformer-isolated and includes a Phase switch for use with pedals and/or amplifiers which invert phase.
- To use stereo effects after Swiss Things, do not have the Phase switch engaged otherwise the L & R

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
