Simple loop switching for your pedals
High-quality true bypass strip loop control for your effects pedals. Compact easy switching solution to keep your tone intact.
TheGigRig QMX has all the same great features as the standard QuarterMaster including;
1. Uses TheGigRig 'True Bypass' relay technology keeping your tone perfectly intact and your switching quiet.
2. Tough aluminium enclosure and small footprint will keep your pedalboard light and compact
3. Uses the new GigRig 'OptoKick' Optical Foot switch which we believe is the most reliable foot switch in the world.
PLUS, the QMX has a very clever ace up its sleeve.
Each loop has a push button next to the loop return that gives you the option to turn a standard loop into a flip/flop loop.
Instantly switch between any selected loops while adding other loops on top. Its great if there are effects on your board that you never stack like multiple delays, or drive units.
By using the QMX returns as instrument inputs you can easily and quietly switch between your favourite guitars
For your simple compact board, TheGigRig QuarterMaster QMX just makes life that little bit easier.

Having already bought a QMX 10 some time ago, I decided it was time to get an extension of two more loops for my pedalboard. My original QMX 10 is connected to a set of 18 pedals. Some in individual loops and some in sets of two or three pedals. Unfortunately my QMX 10 doesn't have the recent optokick footswitches so these are now a great improvement. The Flip-flop function is also great if you want to switch between two loops or even if you have two different sets of several pedals in each loop, wich I do. It's just like you can have two completely separate pedalboards or presets at your feet. The quartermaster range is really awesome. When you are in true bypass mode you really have everything "disconnected" from your circuit. It just takes a light touch on any of the footswitches and you get the corresponding pedal or pedals back in your signal path. No pops no clicks just the sound you want to ear. Just like all the other TheGigRig products that I got to know and own, this one is really a very good one indeed. You really get the idea that these products are designed and developed by someone who faces the same problems you have on your own pedalboard. Especially if it is a medium to large size one with a more complex signal path or several pedals of the same category (different flavour overdrives, delays, distortions, etc.). I think I just may need another one!
Excellent product, 100% recommended ... silent switches, the flip flop function is great. Perfect for small pedalboards, in my case a Pedaltrain metro 16.
My first bit of kit from here and it is fantastic. Works really well and allows me to isolate a troublesome pedal. Will definitely be back for more!
Never thought I'd be this excited about a couple of foot-switches! I noticed my old loop switchers were leaking signal so that the tuner was responding to the guitar signal even when the loop with the tuner in it was 'bypassed'. Not so with these switchers. I use two of them on my board so I have flexibility to minimise cable runs and get the most efficient layout. They are exceedingly well engineered. The foot-switches themselves are an actual joy to use - no clicks or pops and the smoothest action I've ever come across. I know it is a weird thing to be excited about but these are the sorts of things that bring me pleasure. Don't judge me. :-) These Gigrig switchers are the best you can buy.
Tiny foot print, silent operation, brilliant, Cheers
