Electro-Harmonix has unveiled its new Switchblade Pro pedal.
The new compact switching pedal features true mechanical bypass, soft switching, high quality/low noise buffers and volume controls for all input signals, plus high headroom.
The pedal can switch between two different amplifiers or turn both on at once, while an additional amp can be added to the main output for a three amp setup. The Switchblade Pro's footswitchable effects loops can run in series or parallel, and can swap order when run in series. It also provides an adjustable volume boost with up to 6dB of gain for each input.
The Switchblade Pro allows users to mix and switch between three instruments/audio sources—with individual volume controls sent to one amplifier—while its Dry Level mixes dry and processed signals.
EHX also says that the pedal's True Bypass helps avoid “tone suck” and noise from vintage pedals placed in the Switchblade Pro’s FX loops.
The Switchblade Pro comes with an EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply, and is available now for a street price of $123.50.
