Fuzz before phase or phase before fuzz? Now you can try both, with the Saturnworks pedal order switcher.
Order Switcher + Order Switcher w/ Toggle
Most players know that the order in which you arrange your pedals can be just as important as the pedals you choose, and placing the pedals in different orders can have dramatic effects on your tone. The pedal order switcher reverses the order of two effects loops. This allows you to experiment with the effect order order of your pedals, or change it quickly on the fly. The Saturnworks pedal order swapper gives you extra sounds using the same pedals you already use, expanding your sonic palate.
A customer posted a useful demo of the order swapper in action here.
The order switcher pedal includes a bi-color LED to indicate which order your pedals are in. At 4.5″ x 2.5″ the pedal swapper is also very compact. The pedal order switcher is passive, meaning that the swapping function doesn’t require batteries. The power, standard center-negative 9V DC, is only to make the LED work.
The order switcher with a toggle works the same way as the regular order switcher, except that is uses a toggle switch rather than a footswitch.

Order Switcher w Bypass Loop Switches
The order switcher w/ bypass loop switches works just like the regular order switcher, but adds true bypass switches to both loops, so that you can engage or bypass the effects in each loop. The order switcher with bypass loops’ enclosure is 4.75″ x 3.75″ x 2.25″.
Front of the Amp / FX Loop Switch
Our front/FX loop switch switches an effects loop’s position in your signal path. You can put one or more pedals in the effects loop. In one switch position, your pedals go to the front of your amp. In the other switch position, your pedals go through your amp’s effects loop. This diagram shows how to connect it:
