Cheap Pedal Switchers any good?
« on: March 07, 2018, 12:21:39 PM »
I really am interested in getting a pedal switcher for my board. Which, if any of the cheap ones are good?
I sometimes build pedals as "Dan"
I built peddles for Bat Thumbís car.

I had the "Joyo PXL live" that features 2x4 loops (so that you can have 4 loops in front of your amp and 4 loops in the ampīs effects loop, if you want to), channel switching output plus midi program changes and limited possibilities of control changes, too. With 8 loops and minus the midi options it is called "PXL pro". Big german music stores sell both versions rebranded as "Harley Benton" or "Fame".
The price is about 180 Euros for the "live" version.
It absolutely does the job and has a nice lean footprint. For that price you can get nothing better imho.

Well as I'm not going to be touring and am in cheap mode, I popped for the pro version. Found it for $144US with shipping it came out to $159. I'm sure it will be fine for my uses. That seems cheap for what it is. Thanks for the info.
