The BigShot EFX is a true-bypass effects loop switcher that lets you set up two separate effects loops and insert them into your pedal chain. This means that noisy pedals or tone-robbing non true-bypass pedals that you 'love to hate' can now be used and completely taken out of the signal path when they are not needed.
Radial Big Shot EFX True Bypass Effects Loop Selector Pedal Features
- Switch between two separate effects loops
- Take noisy pedals out of the signal chain
- Create true-bypass signal path with all pedals
- Super-bright LEDs for instant status update
Better yet, while you are using the EFX loop-A, you can turn on and off a series of pedals with the EFX loop-B to prepare your next sound effect – and do so without affecting what is happening live. Then, with one foot stomp, a whole chain of pedals can be activated! All of a sudden, your performance becomes seamless and professional - as if you had a custom made switcher. Since both loops are in series, you can feed loop-A into loop-B to add even more creative options to your tone. Super bright LED indicators turn on to let you know when the loops are activated or are off when on standby mode.
The compact yet ultra rugged design makes the BigShot EFX ideal for pedalboards where space is always at a premium. Furthermore, because the audio path does not require any power to make it work, the EFX can be used with or without a power supply. Simply plug in and begin to play.
The BigShot EFX opens the door to professional pedal management and lets you do it all right at your feet!
Using the EFX with two pedal chains
The BigShot EFX makes it easy. This way, you can have EFX loop-A connected with a series of effects that you typically use together and EFX loop-B with time-based effects such as a delay and chorus that you may bring in and out of your signal chain more often.
Using the EFX with one loop and a tuner
Taking pedals and tuners out of the signal chain will often reduce noise and loading on your pickups. This creates a more natural tone. Use EFX loop-1 for your pedals. Move the mute switch to the up position and use EFX loop-2 as a mute while sending signal to your tuner.
Using the EFX as an ABY amp switcher
For older amps that do not have channel switching, connect the EFX loop-1 SEND-1 to channel-1 on your amp and SEND-2 to channel-2. You can now turn each channel on individually. Add pedals in between the EFX and each channel for fun!
