At Gearnews we do love a nice guitar pedal. And when we’ve crammed as many pedals as we can onto our pedalboards, we start to realise that managing all those pedals takes some of the fun out of having all those sounds available in the first place! That’s why we raved about Earthquaker Devices Swiss Things when it was announced at Winter NAMM 2019.
A utility pedal? Boring, right? Wrong. This thing has a wealth of useful functions for big pedalboard setups. Two true-bypass FX loops, one buffered (for drive, fuzz and whatnot), the other buffered for time-based effects. Among the other useful goodies on offer are a buffered tuner output, a Volume EXP jack (with the volume control after Loop 1 so it doesn’t mess with your dirt effects), an AB-Y switcher, latching or momentary modes, a built-in boost of up to 20 dB… The list goes on.
If you want to own one of these handy little fellas, you could be in luck. We’re giving away one Swiss Things box. To enter into the competition, all you have to do is add a comment below this post or on the Facebook news for this competition, telling us why you deserve to be sent one of these. The competition is open until 15 November 2019. Then we’ll pick a lucky winner who’ll receive a Swiss Things Pedalboard Reconciler direct from Gearnews HQ. Good luck!
