Considering the plethora of awesome stomp boxes available these days, most guitarists seem to be following the sage advice of the late, great Tom Petty when he sang, “too much ain’t enough.” The problem is that when you hook up all of those incredible pedals in a daisy chain, the tone that reaches your amp usually ends up sounding like an asthmatic mosquito.

Various companies offer sophisticated loop switching controllers, but in these cases too much is too much, especially for players who prefer to plug and play rather than ponder and program. Fortunately, EarthQuaker Devices has come to the rescue with the Swiss Things Pedalboard Reconciler, which performs an impressive variety of essential functions and makes it easy for guitarists to maximize the potential of their pedalboards.
