What would you think if someone was telling you that your pickup could do much more ?
Discover the EXchanger, the pedal that remodels your pickups
By turning them into others
Our patented analogic technology brings the ability to change your pickup tone just in seconds. Without changing anything on your guitar, you can transform your single coil into a P90, a humbucker or any other single coil. Of course, you can also transform your humbucker. If you have already found your perfect pickup, enjoy the possibility to multiply its tonal characteristics.
By enhancing them to get a well-defined and dynamic response
Our process increases the dynamic response of a pickup by eliminating its signal chain losses caused by cables, potentiometers and mostly eddy currents induced in pickups materials. If you think your pickup needs to be changed (and that’s often the case on several guitars), think again, because it’s not the only solution. Try a simpler way with EXchanger and be sure to discover your guitar again.

How to use the EXchanger
ADJUST THE BANDWIDTH
Use this section to compensate your pickup high-ends losses. A small number of the pickup adjust knob will give a dark rendering and a high number will give a bright rendering.
For single coil correction, prefer a small number (often between 1 to 4). For humbucker, prefer a high number (often between 4 and 8). We recommend using the bright boost switch only with humbuckers, especially if you use a long cable between the guitar and the pedal. Don’t forget that the higher the inductance of your pickup and the longer the cable, the higher the loss correction needed which is done by selecting a high number on the adjusting knob and/or the bright boost switch.
In all cases, tune it to tweak the resulting tone that you want.
ADJUST THE LEVEL
Use this section to compensate the output level of your pickup and to match the voicings levels with the real output levels of the pickups proposed. Don’t forget that each 8 voicings have their own output levels, humbucker voicings will sound louder than single coil voicings.
If you use single coil, choose the Hot Texas preset and tune the level to approximately obtain the same level on the lowest string while bypassing the pedal.
If you use humbucker, choose the classic 50th preset and do the same thing.
At any time, you can boost or reduce the overall presets levels as you wish. Be careful to not saturate the pedal with a high output pickup and a level sets too high.
SELECT THE PICKUP
Select the pickup tone you want. One pressure on the footswitch will engage the next preset. At the last preset, a pressure will select the first one again.
You can get your original tone back without any alteration by pressing the true bypass footswitch. The pedal is bypassed when the «working» led is turned off.
