Description & Specs

From JHS:

The JHS Pedals Switchback is a small unassuming box with a massive feature set. It began its life as a device that we designed just for ourselves to test and compare pedals in the JHS workshop but we soon realized that it was extremely useful for everyone’s guitar rig on stage or in the studio.

The Switchback has one input, one output and two separate selectable effects loops (Send/Return), plus an A/B toggle that is controllable by our Red Remote switching system. The foot-switch is 100% true bypass, so when it’s off, it's not affecting your signal in any way. There are millions of ways to use the Switchback (Maybe not a million but… You get the idea) but here are a few of our favorite applications that are incredibly useful!

1. An A/B True Bypass Looper
Place a pedal or chain of pedals in the first loop and place a different pedal or chain of pedals in the second loop. The toggle/red remote will allow you to quickly switch between those two loops. This is great for instantly placing different effects chains in and out of your rig on the fly or for shooting out two pedals with zero dead time in-between playing… Find out if that old TS808 sounds better than your TS-9 :-) if you demo different pedals, this is a must have.

2. A Simple True Bypass Looper
Place your pedal or chain of pedals that you want in the first loop. The toggle/Red Remote will now toggle between the loop with your effects and the clean bypass signal. There’s no need to bridge the second loop with a patch cable as the Switchback automatically bypasses any loop where there’s nothing plugged in to the jack.

3. An A/B Box
Simply use Send 1 and Send 2 to go to two different amps or any other application where you need two switchable outputs, and don’t use the output. Again, using the Red Remote gives you the ability to switch on the fly while playing!

4. An Amp Input Switcher
Use Send 1 to channel one and Send 2 to channel two. This allows you to “channel switch” on any amp with multiple inputs like old Marshalls and Fenders!

5. An Effects Loop A/B
Plug your amp's effects loop Send into the input and the amps return into the output. Then toggle between the two loops of the Switchback as in example #1 above.

Because of the red remote function you can place the Switchback and any effects in its loops completely out of sight under your pedal board or in a rack while only having the small 1x1” Red Remote accessible!!!

The Switchback could become an essential utility in your touring rig or studio, helping you solve many switching puzzles with your rig. So grab a Switchback and get to climbing!

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
