QuarterMaster QMX - 8

(10 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, top quality switcher. Keeps the noise down, simple to use. Flip flop function works great. Built like a tank.

    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.

    quartermaster QMX-8

    Posted by Rick on Apr 20th 2018

    I purchased a QMX-8 to replace the Boss ES-8 that I had on my pedal board. I found the ES-8 to have too many control options and parameters. Even using the editor tool, it was tough to program and had way more levels of control then I needed. I was spending more time tweaking than I was playing. Ultimately, I just wanted a quality loop switcher that was easy to use....plug and play. That's what I got with the QMX-8. I tested my signal strait in to my amp and through the QMX-8 and I could discern no difference in volume or tone. A great purchase, I highly recommend this's ace (as Dan would say)!

    Quarter Master Review

    Flawless! I use a vintage 335 through vintage Fender amps and the tone now coming out of my amps is the best it has ever been. I would 100% recommend this product.

    Qmx8 changed everything. I a/b eight drives in flip flop and now I have new favorites and new combos. Drives that were too noisy to work in a chain (angry driver) are now stellar. It has removed frustration from my musical life and added joy. Flip flop mode is so usable live for shifting gears from compressor to drive or light drives to lead with slap etc. Buy one today and you will never regret it and never look back. Just be prepared to start saving and craving g2.
