X- Box (clean dirty)
The X box is a unit that will alternate between two loops of pedals or individual pedals for an ‘either/or’ type setup.
The X box is a unit that will alternate between two loops of pedals or individual pedals for an ‘either/or’ type setup. This is irreplaceable if you use a fuzz for your lead tone and an overdrive for your rhythm, but don’t want them at the same time, or if you have specific verse/chorus sounds…
One setup I’ve used the Xbox for is:
Loop 1: Shifter/delay/reverb
Loop 2: Overdrive/slapback delay
Set the reverb to EXTREME wet swimmy/pad type organ sounds for the verses and than a real biting overdrive with just a touch of slapback for loud sharp clear chorus riffs. At one stomp of the X-Box you can turn off all of one loop and on all of the other loop! Ridiculously useful and flexible, especially for those of us who have to sing while we rip out!
The approx build time for an Xbox switcher is 1 week
