Guitar Effects Canada - RJM Switch Gizmo
The Switch Gizmo is our most cost-effective solution for adding MIDI capabilities to guitar amplifiers. It can connect to almost any guitar amplifier that uses one or two 1/4-inch mono or TRS jacks for its footswitch. This covers the majority of amps on the market. With the Switch Gizmo, you can control your amp's channel switching and any other footswitchable features of your amps from a MIDI controller or MIDI enabled effects processor like the Line 6 POD HD500, Boss GT-100 and others.
What's the difference between the Switch Gizmo and Mini Amp Gizmo?
The Mini Amp Gizmo is specifically designed for amps that have complex footswitches and proprietary footswitch connectors. These amps require a Mini Amp Gizmo and an interface cable made for that specific model of amp. Amps like the Mesa Rectifier and Road King series, Bogner Ecstasy and Blackstar HT Stage series are examples of amps that work well with the Mini Amp Gizmo.
The Switch Gizmo is made specifically for amps that use 1/4-inch mono or TRS jacks for its footswitch. No special interface cable is needed, only the appropriate off-the-shelf 1/4-inch cable(s). It works with a variety of amps including the Marshall DSL, Mesa Lonestar and Mini Rectifier and many, many others.
