The pedal features two independent loops that can be set up in either series or parallel to switch between effects loops, command a multi-instrument set-up, or feed up to three amplifiers.

New York, NY (April 22, 2019) -- Electro-Harmonix is now shipping the Switchblade Pro, 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.

Features:

  • 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

The Switchblade Pro comes with an EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply, is available now and features a $123.50 USA street price.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
