MIDI Enabled Analog Overdrive and Amp Channel Switcher Pedal

199.00 179.00

TS8-MS is the only MIDI enabled Analog Overdrive & MIDI Amp Channel Switcher in a classic guitar effect pedal! It can be used concomitantly as classic tube screamer guitar effect and guitar amplifier channel switcher. It responds to MIDI Program Change and Control Change messages for all its switching functions, which perform simultaneously in either MIDI Receive or in MIDI Transmit mode. It can also be used as simple MIDI Controller, transmitting 3 preset numbers while foot-switching for all other functions.

TS8-MS is an analog overdrive guitar effect pedal with classic 808 feel but with some added quirks & sound mojo, hand assembled in a compact and roadworthy aluminium case, which combines MIDI functionalities and external switching relay capabilities, that can be used to switch guitar amplifier channels or other available features in an amp (EQ, boost, reverb, etc.), making it a reliable, one-of-a-kind tool for guitarists. We call it the Swiss Army Knife of Tone.

It can be used to add MIDI amp channel switching to almost any guitar amp, as well as adding a MIDI enabled overdrive pedal in the signal chain. Or both, at the same time. It responds to MIDI Program Change and MIDI Control Change messages for all its switching capabilities – bypass and external switching.

It can even be used as a very simple MIDI Controller! On footswitch action, TS8-MS transmits three MIDI Program Change numbers, one for each pedal state: Bypass, Overdrive and Extended (long push on the footswitch).
