      Electro-Harmonix Switchblade+ Channel Selector Footswitch (H79047)
Availability:  


The Switchblade+ offers a convenient solution to a player’s switching needs. Route your signal to either output A or B, or send it to both at once. Connect a tuner or effects pedal to its dedicated Tuner output. With a fully passive audio path and active LED indication, the new Switchblade+ is your utilitarian sidekick.
– Controls –
A/B Footswitch (LED) – Press this switch to route the input signal to either OUT A (Red LED) or OUT B (Green LED).

A+B Footswitch (LED) – Press this switch to route the input signal to both OUT A and OUT B. When A+B is engaged (Red LED), the A/B Footswitch has no effect on the signal path.

– I/O –
INPUT – Connect the output of your instrument or another effects pedal to this jack.

TUNER – Connect this jack to the input of a tuner device or another effects pedal. This jack is hardwired to the INPUT jack and provides a direct output regardless of the state of the unit.

OUT A – Connect this jack to the input of an amplifier or the input of another effects pedal. Depending on the state of the A/B and A+B controls, this jack will output either the direct input signal or no signal. When the A/B LED is lit red or the A+B LED is lit up, OUT A is selected.

OUT B – Connect this jack to the input of an amplifier or the input of another effects pedal. Depending on the state of the A/B and A+B controls, this jack will output either the direct input signal or no signal. When the A/B LED is lit green or the A+B LED is lit up, OUT B is selected.

– Power -
The SWITCHBLADE+ can be powered by a 9V battery or a 9VDC battery eliminator capable of delivering at least 16mA. The optional 9V power supply from Electro-Harmonix is 9.6DC-200BI (same as used by Boss® & Ibanez®) 9.6 Volts DC 200mA. The power supply must have a barrel connector with center negative.

The SWITCHBLADE+ can also operate without power, since the audio path is fully passive. With no power, however, the LED indication will not function.

When A+B is engaged, the input impedance at the INPUT jack is equal to 50kO in parallel with the combined input impedances of the devices connected to the TUNER, OUT A, and OUT B jacks. When A+B is not engaged, the input impedance at the INPUT jack is equal to 100kO in parallel with the combined input impedances of the devices connect to the TUNER jack and OUT A or OUT B.

    As reviewed by Matthew Vandegriff on 9/12/2012

    I love Electro-harmonix. I own several of their pedals (Big Muff, POG2, Freeze) all of which are exceptional pedals. Unfortunately the Switchblade Plus is a huge disappointment and not at all what it claims to be. The crux of the matter is that the channels bleed into each other...all the time. This pedal doesn?t really let you ?switch? between channels. What it does is turn both channels on and favor one over the other. If, for example, you are trying to switch between a clean and overdrive sound (very common) you WILL hear the distorted sound while you are on the clean channel. Not just faintly, but enough to interfere with the sound. I assumed this was a malfunction of the pedal, but I contacted E.H. and explained the problem. The response was, ?Yes there is a small amount of bleed with the pedal between channels. Unfortunately they are all like this because of the small size.? word for word. This is a critical fault in the design and seriously cripples the pedals effectiveness. If the ?small size? is the problem, then the pedal needs to be bigger. Common sense. I was also told that I should ?work around the limitations? and if I want a pedal that does not bleed between channels then, ?maybe this is not the pedal for me.? I offer this as a warning because it may not be the pedal for you either. I am returning it and going with the Radial Big Shot ABY, which is a bit more expensive but I contacted the company and they assured me that channel bleeding would not be a problem. We?ll see.
