The EarthQuaker Devices Swiss Things looks incredibly complicated at first glance but fear not tone traveler, let's break down this black box of pedalboard magic;

This is what you can do with it:

  • Use as many pedals as you’d like without tone-suck
  • Quickly and easily bypass or engage all of your effects with one click
  • Use Flexi-Switch™ Technology with every pedal in your setup
  • Eliminate volume pedal tone-suck by using any expression pedal to control volume
  • Use multiple amps without phase issues, ground loops, or extra noise
  • Tidy up your rig, shorten cable runs, and reduce tone loss by keeping all inputs and outputs in one location

Specs

Power - 9V DC Negative Tip. 40mA current draw.

It is highly recommended to use this effect with an isolated power supply, as non-isolated power sources will add unwanted noise to the signal.

Expression Jack - a 50kΩ expression pedal will allow the full range of control from the Swiss Things. 

Switching - This is a true bypass pedal, but due to the nature of relay based switching the Swiss Things must be powered to pass audio signal.

Size - 121 x 154 x 57 mm
