QuarterMaster QMX - 6

(14 reviews) Write a Review
The GigRig QuarterMaster QMX6

Simple loop switching for your pedals

High-quality true bypass strip loop control for your effects pedals. Compact easy switching solution to keep your tone intact. 

TheGigRig QMX has all the same great features as the standard QuarterMaster including; 

1. Uses TheGigRig 'True Bypass' relay technology keeping your tone perfectly intact and your switching quiet. 
2. Tough aluminium enclosure and small footprint will keep your pedalboard light and compact 
3. Uses the new GigRig 'OptoKick' Optical Foot switch which we believe is the most reliable foot switch in the world.

PLUS, the QMX has a very clever ace up its sleeve. 

Each loop has a push button next to the loop return that gives you the option to turn a standard loop into a flip/flop loop. 
Instantly switch between any selected loops while adding other loops on top. Its great if there are effects on your board that you never stack like multiple delays, or drive units. 
By using the QMX returns as instrument inputs you can easily and quietly switch between your favourite guitars 

For your simple compact board, TheGigRig QuarterMaster QMX just makes life that little bit easier.

    Major Tone Saver

    Posted by Jimbo from Scrimshaw on Jan 31st 2020

    QMX-6 is something I bought reluctantly, but am surprised by how much I enjoy using it. The build quality and design are top notch. The switches feel so good to the touch, they're addicting. I can't imagine not using it now, it just washed away my tone woes. No regrets.

    Great Switcher for Small Pedalboards

    Awesome product for silent switching of small to medium-sized pedalboards.

    You can't go wrong with any of the Quartermaster series. The QMX-6 is great if you need the switching but don't have a lot of space. Get one! You won't regret it.

    Exactly as advertised. Switches are so good, and the build quality is top notch. You get what you pay for and I like this much better than other true-bypass loop boxes I have had. It just screams quality. It was a little more money but it was on my doorstep very quickly and the extra cost is SO worth it. Buy it and be done!

    When the Quartermaster arrived in a cardboard tube, I thought there was a mistake. There was no way this thing was going to be so light! Upon unpacking it, I was stunned how slim and small this unit is. I had worried about having to ban some pedals from my board to make room, but it sits on the front bar of my PedalTrain without endangering any pedal's position. You'll want to experiment with different kinds of patch cables to maximize space further. I think straight-to-angled plug cables are probably the most economic way to go. The switches are a joy to use. Smooth and responsive, without any annoying click sounds. The LEDs are bright and clear. Haven't done too much with the flip flop function yet, but I imagine it'll come in handy, especially with my 2 stacked Tube Screamers. I've set one of them to very soft, the other to higher overdrive. I'll be great to be able to go from one to the other with just one foot step. This thing is everything I hoped for, and quite a bit more.

    This is the bee's knees. The flip/flop loop switches turn this into sophisticated but minimalist switching solution. I love it.

    Never thought I really needed a switcher, then I came across a previous review where he mentioned using it with vintage pedals without true-bypass - The light bulb popped up over my head and I ordered one that night... WOW! What a difference!!! My board has 6 vintage pedals, I tried using a buffer, but I didn't like what it did to the top-end. The Quartermaster solved everything. The flip/flop mode is Aces. Got vintage pedals you need this - Period
