Voodoo Lab Pedal Switcher Guitar Switch
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.

Can the Pedal Switcher loops switch the channels on my amp?
No. The Pedal Switcher is intended for switching pedals! Besides pedals, loops can be used as a
mute and/or tuner out, and the last loop can be used as an A/B switch.
Can the Pedal Switcher loops switch my amp head into different speaker cabinets?
No. Pedal Switcher audio loops are for instrument and line level signals only. Using them to switch
amplifier or speaker outputs will severely damage your Pedal Switcher!
Does Pedal Switcher have the same buffer circuit as the GCX?
Yes. The buffer circuit is identical to the current production GCX, including the expensive (and
sonically superior) Burr-Brown opamp.
Can I add Pedal Switcher to an existing Ground Control Pro/GCX system?
Yes. The Ground Control Pro can control Pedal Switchers in the same way that it controls the GCX.
Can I use a third-party MIDI footcontroller with Pedal Switcher?
Not really. You can call up the Pedal Switcher’s presets with MIDI program change commands,
but there is no way to save or modify presets without Commander.
