EC Custom Shop Announces the Super Switcher

Featuring 8 effects loops

Isreal (January 1, 2012) -- EC Custom Shop has announced the Super Switcher programmable switching system, designed as a solution for guitarists and bassists who use a lot of pedals.

The super switcher features:

  • 8 effect loops
  • 7 mono and 1 stereo return for stereo pedals
  • 7 X 3 presets for saving all presets easily
  • 5 Amp control relay functions for controlling amp channels, FX, tap tempo and more.
  • high quality input buffer selectable on\off for keeping the right tone when using long cables
  • Tuner out for silent tuning and keeping the tuner out of the audio path
  • Makes all your pedals true bypass
  • Each preset can be set as program or manual specific control over pedal

The Super Switcher features a link option that allows players to link two units together, citing these potential benefits:

1 - Put one backstage with all the pedals and amps and one of the stage front just as a controller to get clean stage operation
2 - Put one on the stage for your in front pedals and one back stage for your FX LOOP pedals
3 - Just to add more loops and controls
The super switcher will also be including a control output for the relay functions - together with custom amp cables that we make you could send only one cable to your amp - keeping the stage even cleaner.

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
