Electro-Harmonix has yet another new product on the way, the Switchblade Pro billed as: ‘a compact switching pedal with advanced features including true mechanical bypass, soft switching, high quality/low noise buffers, volume controls for all input signals and high headroom’.
Key features of the Switchblade Pro include the ability to:
- Switch between two different amplifiers or turn both on at once. An additional amp can be added to the main output for a three amp setup.
- Footswitchable effects loops can run in series or parallel, and can swap order when run in series
- Mix and switch between three instruments/audio sources with individual volume controls sent to one amplifier
- Dry Level makes it ideal for bass players by mixing in the dry and processed signals to keep the low-end clear and focused
- True bypass helps avoid “tone suck” and noise from vintage pedals placed in the Switchblade Pro’s FX loops
- Provides an adjustable volume boost with up to 6dB of gain for each input
No UK price was announced but in the USA the street price will be $123.50
