Using A Pedalboard Switcher

Almost every electric guitar player uses effect pedals. And it seems that everyone wants a pedal that is “true-bypass”. True-bypass refers to an effect pedal that passes your guitar signal untouched through the pedal when it is turned off. Your signal remains untouched and “bypasses” the pedals circuits.

Many pedals that are not true-bypass may color your tone or otherwise affect it somehow. Older pedals, especially wah-wah pedals are notorious for altering tone when switched off. Guitar players love the sound they get from a vintage wah but hate what it does to their overall signal chain.

Enter the true-bypass pedalboard switcher. These switchers allow the user to convert their pedals to true-bypass, and/or to completely remove the pedal from the signal chain.

G Boards Uno Pedalboard Switcher

The G Boards Uno switcher is designed for a single non true-bypass pedal to be engaged or removed from your signal chain by stomping. Any tone sucking pedal would be perfect for this.

G Boards Hat Trick Loop Switcher

This G Boards Hat Trick switcher has 3 true-bypass loops. If you have a small pedalboard, you can put a single pedal into each of the loops and then engage or remove the pedals from your signal chain simply by stomping. It’s great for eliminating noise, and tone suckage. It also shortens your signal when pedals are not engaged and this is always good for your tone.
