The Switchback is a small box with a massive feature set. It has one input, one output and two separate selectable effects loops (Send/Return), plus an A/B toggle that is controllable by the JHS Red Remote switching system. There are countless ways to use the Switchback but here are a few applications that are incredibly useful:

1. A/B true bypass looper
Place a pedal or chain of pedals in the first loop and place a different pedal or chain of pedals in the second loop. The toggle/red remote will allow you to quickly switch between those two loops. This is great for instantly placing different effects chains in and out of your rig on the fly or for shooting out two pedals with zero dead time in-between playing.

2. Simple true bypass looper
Place your pedal or chain of pedals that you want in the first loop. The toggle/Red Remote will now toggle between the loop with your effects and the clean bypass signal. There’s no need to bridge the second loop with a patch cable as the Switchback automatically bypasses any loop where there’s nothing plugged in to the jack.

3. A/B box
Simply use Send 1 and Send 2 to go to two different amps or any other application where you need two switchable outputs, and don’t use the output.

4. Amp input switcher
Use Send 1 to channel one and Send 2 to channel two. This allows you to “channel switch” on any amp with multiple inputs like old Marshalls and Fenders.

5. Effects loop A/B
Plug your amp’s effects loop Send into the input and the amps return into the output. Then toggle between the two loops of the Switchback as in example 1 above.
