Welcome to Swiss Things™! Swiss Things is an all-in-one pedalboard reconciliation solution designed to really tie your rig together without resorting to some confusing loop-switching contraption bigger than a meatball party sub that eats up the entire bottom row of your board and kind-of-but-not-quite does what you need it to do.

Swiss Things™ combines two true-bypass Flexi-Switch™ enabled effects loops, a Flexi-Switch™ AB-Y box with transformer isolation between outputs, a buffered tuner output, 20dB of clean boost with adjustable gain, an expression pedal output for volume control and a quiet, high headroom output buffer into a compact pedalboard-friendly signal routing junction box that lives at the top-right corner of your pedalboard and really ties your rig together without any signal loss.

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

AKRON, Ohio & Melbourne, Australia — EarthQuaker Devices, LLC and Yamaha Music have announced that effective January 1, 2019, Yamaha Music Australia will be the exclusive distributor of EarthQuaker Devices effects pedals in Australia.

Since then, EarthQuaker Devices pedals have been used by artists such as Queens of the Stone Age, Boris, the Mars Volta, Mono, CHON, Asai Kenichi, and the Black Keys. Each effects pedal is built by hand at EarthQuaker Devices’ workshop in Akron, Ohio, USA, by a team of passionate artists and musicians.

EarthQuaker Devices is honored to work beside Yamaha Music Australia, and to play a part in Yamaha’s 130-year history. We are excited to deliver innovative and creative effects pedals which live up to Yamaha’s philosophy of “Kandō,” and it is our hope to supply musicians with effects pedals of supreme audio quality, build quality, physical appearance, and performance.
