QuarterMaster QMX - 8

(14 reviews) Write a Review
The GigRig Quartermaster QMX 8

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.

    Great addition to a pedalboard

    Posted by Madkrafter on Aug 17th 2020

    I am building my first pedalboard and adding a switcher seemed like an extravagant feature. I build a lot of things - guitars, amps, furniture, leather... and now a pedalboard. I believe in doing things right. The QMX-8 is the right way! Great build quality. I had some overdrive pedals that popped pretty bad when switching on. Not any more. I haven't fully tested it yet. My next addition will be The Gig Rig power system. It really is the most versatile power system. Thanks Dan and crew!

    Solid peice of gear!

    Posted by Brad on Jun 30th 2020

    This is such a great addition to my board and beautifully built. I have some pedals with 2 switches that are very close together and by using the QMX to bring the effects in/out, and then I use a button topper on the secondary function so it's easy to hit without worrying about hitting the on/off switch. The flip flop feature is great too.

    Outstanding product! I've been collecting pedals for years and have never had a good way to organize them. Consequently, my great tone gear has gone unused and I had lapsed into lazy and bad habits in my playing. Er, mostly, not playing. I bit the bullet, built a pedal board, bought a power supply, and this loop unit. Wow, wow wow! It works just like it should and keeps the noise pedal introduce tamed because when they're not selected, they're not in the signal chain. I have over 10 pedals on my board, but only one or several engaged at one time. The layout is smart, the build quality is and components are top notch. I now play and play and play and have fallen in love with both playing, and my gear all over again. Seriously, this unit will make you a better player because you will not want to put your guitar down. I should have picked this up years ago

    I put this on a home made little pedal board. Easy to connect and easy to use.

    Man this switcher is worth every penny. A Very well built high quality product. . Took me a week of soldering and arranging but I finally got my qmx8 up and working and it’s everything dan and mick says it is. Holy smokes this is everything I hoped it would be. It’s quiet and it really gives you endless options. Great product man. If you got a lot of pedals and are wanting a switcher and don’t need all the bells and whistles don’t waist your time with the inferior stuff out thier. I’ll be getting the abybaby next. Cheers

    GigRig QMX8 is stellar!

    Posted by James Filben on Oct 10th 2019

    I recently purchased the GigRig Quartermaster QMX8, an absolutely stellar piece of gear for the serious musician. Built like a tank with the finest components. The sound quality of my rig has improved to a level I honestly did not expect. Now that I have experienced the QMX8 in my system I can honestly say that it is an indispensable tool for achieving the best tone and ease of functionality when working with 8+ pedals. This baby is simply extraordinary on every level!

    Works as it is advertised to. Makes my tone coming through the amp much better. Each pedal sounds so much different. I need to tweak them all, but I am very happy.
