EarthQuaker Devices Swiss Things Pedalboard Reconciler

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.

Ye Chuck it here trying to escape the box

Cause it’s my birthday next week and I had to sell most my guitar gear this year to help pay for various house renovations.

I dont’ deserve this machine. I just love how it sounds.

Earthquaker devices? I love it. My pedalboard is missing one pedal with the dimensions of 4.75 x 5.65 x 2.25 in. and so it happens that these are the dimensions of the beatiful swiss knife of pedals, the Swiss Thing. To this day, each military recruit (which includes most of the male population, since the Swiss have compulsory military service for all men when they reach the age of adulthood) receives a Swiss Army knife upon beginning their service. And I feel like I deserve a Swiss Thing for my pedal board to help me carry on through the war… Read more »

Ehm..duuuuhh?!


Josiah

My great great grandfather moved to the states from Switzerland 156 years ago so our family could have a better life, having this pedal is a better life, obviously this was made for me.


Sean Halas

Do any of us really deserve anything. No…except me :). I’m a new dad and anything that reconciles anything would be a big help right now. Hehe


James M

Pedalboard saver! Gotta love a big utility pedal – I can put this to amazing use, and my wife can’t moan about me buying another pedal, as I wouldn’t have paid!


Alessandro Conte

Because at the age of 47 I’m still dreaming to become soon the next super rock star, and I need to be well equipped for it!!!


Christian Arial

“For those about to rock, we salute you!”

would love to give this to my son for x mass. Its been a rough year for him. He has been forced to sell alot of his euipment. This would bring a smile to his face again.

I mean christmas is coming and what would be best, than winning a free earthquaker devices pedal? Also a pedal that comes to solve all my routing problems, that has a boost ( so i dont have to spend another hundred bucks on it) and that looks amazing!
So maybe i don’t deserve it! but god! it would be cool to win 🙂


Duke

I love Swiss Things. Swiss Cheese, Swiss Cocoa, Swiss Alps. Of course I need a Swiss Things Pedal!


Mo Gottschall
Guest

I need this to clean up my pedalboard and route my signal path. I use both channels of my amp with different settings and effects into each one, but I don’t have a graceful A/B + loop solution to switch between or blend them like this.


Desmond
Guest

I think it’s the missing piece I need to streamline my board. And EQD makes rad stuff.


Philipp Kuerten

Because!


Karl
Guest

Cause I’m the f@|<!n' Olympic gold medalists in procrastination.. always noodling around never getting around to actually setting up a practical pedal board for performing while being able to sing. Been thinking a box like this could this help with multitasking.

one sunny day I’ll prove it to ya.. No really i will 😉


William Gould

This is a tone chasers dream. It would solve the issue of reconfiguring my pedalbaord, depending on the songs I am playing each week, at church.


Matt
Guest

This would hopefully give me some options for quickly re-routing my signal chain.


Tyler
Guest

I am a super nice guy…most of the time!


Lawrence Reynolds

Love this would be great for praise band


W Todd

I have 70+ pedals that need Reconciled. Save me!


Dale
Guest

I deserve one of these because I’ve been a very good boy this year and good boys deserve thoughtful pedal routing.

I’ve been after a Swiss Things since its announcement in the market, but life takes wild turns and I haven’t been able to get my hands on it. After viewing endless options for an apparatus that ties everything I need together, nothing surpasses a Swiss Things. I’d love nothing more than to rep Earthquaker Devices once more on my board with a do-it-all device that makes gigging/jamming easier.


Jonathan
Guest

Commenting to enter! I don’t deserve one of these wonderful devices, but I sure would like to use one in my pedalboard.


Vincent
Guest

Probably the best way to replace all the pedalboard tools in an great package for expanding boards, definitely need it!


Tyler King
Guest

I’m not gonna say I DESERVE this pedal more than anyone else, but I definitely NEED this pedal because I’m a perpetual tone chaser and this would help to enhance my tonal capabilities and make my effects pedals pop a little more. Thank you for the opportunity.


jeve

Me want because me-me is good boy.


Cesar Pinilla
Guest

I would like one because this would seriously reduce the amount of tap dancing I have to do when playing live


Danny Powell
Guest

Hey there, pedal looks great, would look even better on my board!


Eamo
Guest

I wanna the swiss cheese


Brent J
Guest

Looks like a great device. Tjhanks for the chance!


RTL

This would be perfect for when my eldest son comes over to jam. Please enter me into the contest!


sergej

wish you all luck


Tom Hunter

So my pedalboard can form like Voltron to generate a new genre of music


Chris

This pedal looks so useful!!

I do not deserve to be sent this thing, any more than any other kind, generous, education-focused, home-tethered, permanently horribly ill, sharp-tongued know-it-all with a computer or telephone keyboard. If you send me one, I’ll be happy, however – maybe even grateful, if it works as well as other Earthquaker boxes and I last long enough to put it to use.

What, is that not a good answer?


angelo puccinelli
Guest

Thank you for letting me win!


Tanner
Guest

Because I will put it to good use. I play guitar and bass and this would really simplify what I do.


Eric
Guest

Looks excellent!


Kerry M
Guest

I definitely deserve this: with the minimal pedal board I have now, this would be such overkill that I’d have the most hilarious board ever seen 🙂


Robert Abernathy
Guest

This looks awesome. Right now I’m a tap-dancing manic using my pedalboard! I would put this to good good use!


Chris

😍
