Single loop, True-Bypass effects looper

Single Loop Switcher, true bypass (mini enclosure)
Use it to:
  • Switch on/off a single effects loop.
  • Take noisy pedals out of the signal chain.
  • Give any pedal true-bypass switching ability.
This Single Loop Switcher is a foot-controllable device that allows a musician to insert a series of effect pedals into the signal chain and take them out when not in use. Its single loop make it easy to prepare a complex pedal setups in ‘standby’ and activate them with a single foot stomp. Also, any old (and tone sucking) or noisy effects can now be taken out of the signal chain when not required.
The switcher features a 100% passive audio circuit, without any buffering or loading of its own. Power supply is only needed for the LEDs to light, the switcher will also work without power. True-bypass switching guarantees the full natural tone of your instrument is always delivered to the amp.

- Loop footswitch: When the footswitch is in bypass position (LED off), the instrument signal passes through the switch as if hardwired. Depressing the footswitch diverts the signal to the SND (send) jack and to the effect pedals in the loop. The signal is received back through the RTN (return) jack and passed on to the output.

- Using the Loop Switcher in an amplifier’s effects loop: Since the Switcher has a passive circuit, it can be safely used in your amp’s effects loop. Simply connect the amplifier’s effect send to the Switcher's input. Then connect the Switcher's output to the amp’s effect return. Connect any number of effect pedals to the Switcher's SEND and RETURN jacks as described above.
