EarthQuaker Devices Introduces the Swiss Things Pedalboard Reconciler Pedal
EarthQuaker Devices has released their first ever utility pedal. The Swiss Things Pedalboard Reconciler is described by the company as “an all-in-one pedalboard reconciliation solution.”
“Swiss Things combines two true-bypass Flexi-Switch enabled effects loops, a Flexi-Switch AB-Y box with transformer isolation between outputs, a buffered tuner output, 20dB of clean boost, an expression pedal output for volume control, and a quiet, high headroom output buffer into a compact pedalboard-friendly signal routing junction box that lives at the top-right corner of your pedalboard and really ties your rig together without any signal loss,” EarthQuaker explains.
Flexi-Switch Technology is a proprietary design from the company that allows for latching and/or momentary-style switching to be used with any effects pedal. The first loop is unbuffered for better use with low input impedance pedals (fuzz, overdrive, distortion, etc.) while Loop 2 is buffered for better use with time-based and modulation effects.

The EarthQuaker Devices Swiss Things Pedalboard Reconciler carries a street price of $250.
