Electro Harmonix Switch Blade Used
The Nano Switchblade is a footswitch pedal that switches the Y jack connection between the A jack and B jack. The Switchblade can be used in two directions, meaning the signal path can flow from A/B to Y, or from Y to A/B. Using the Switchblade to switch between two instruments: plug the instruments into jack A and jack B using 1/4” instrument cables. Then connect jack Y to the next device in your signal chain (effects, if any, or amplifier if none).
The Switchblade is not limited the above two applications. Here are two more application examples: Y: Instrument—> Effects chain A, effects chain B Y: Amplifier head—> Speaker cabinet A, speaker cabinet B (be sure to use speaker cable and not instrument cable for this application). The Switchblade is a passive device and requires no power supply, such as a battery or power adapter. The Switchblade does not support stereo use and will only work with 1/4” mono cables.
