This is a great piece of equipment that dramatically reduced the residual noise from my pedal board. I put my distortion pedals in loop 1, modulation pedals in loop 2, Wah in 3 and EQ/boost on loop 4. I use pedals to augment my sound, not to BE my sound. On many songs I don't use any pedals. The Pedal Switcher lets me have my original guitar tone and add effects when I want without degrading my overall performance. If you are thinking about one of these, just do it. It's the most cost effective of it's kind and it uses real "relays" inside for straight-wire performance. Good music to all!
