    I learn a lot from your various u-tube postings. I hope this is a small bit of returning the favor. I’ve been looking for a way to switch between amp heads and speaker cabs that doesn’t involve running back and forth to the iso booths and pulling heads out for switching cables. Lots of stuff out there for switching between heads but not much in the way to allow for easily switching between cabs. This box allows you to prewire 7 heads and 7 speaker cabs, and switch between them all with knobs on the front of the box… easier than a patchbay. Those not in use see a load. There’s another model of it that adds an additional circuit for an attenuator. So essentially 8 sends. I ordered it, it hasn’t arrived yet, but I found it to be unique in my google searches as typically what is available is two or three sends only. I get it, on a gig, you wouldn’t want much more than that I think, but for quick switching in a home studio, I’m thinking this thing will shave at least an hour off a typical guitar heavy session.

    Hey Old Dude,

    I am just about to pull the trigger on the De Lisle 7×7 plus attenuator loop. I am going to pair it with the Boss Tube Amp Expander (in the loop), thereby adding effects, attenuation, an effects loop, and IR capability to all my heads in one shot. Seems like a killer set up to me.

    Have you gotten your unit yet? Any surprises you hadn’t thought about connection/feature wise?

    Hey sorry for the delay in responding, I didn’t get any type of notification that you had written though in my defense. So for what its worth… I did get the De Lisle 7×7 and its working great in my studio set up. I have two groups of combo amps and stand alone heads, one group is for 8 ohm speaker set ups and the other is for 16 ohm setups. I’m using the 7×7 currently with the 16 ohm group and I’ve set that group up so I can switch between a UAD Ox and a Two Notes Torpedo Studio as attenuator by way of a neutrik patchbay. Same bay routes from rjm effect gizmo to various heads so I can vary multi amp/ multi effect loops. I’m going for maximum flexibility on the fly cause well… I’m an old dude, and if I get a great idea, I want to make it happen before early dementia takes over. I spend most of my time with the Ox these days since I can DI and mic cabs and my audio interface is Apollo so I can track lots of different ways with all my toys in real time and beef everything up on its way in. This set up with the 7×7 is seriously kicking things up a notch because I can send to multiple heads and multiple cabs and the attenuated circuit all at the same time. When I got it originally, I had the misinformed impression that I’d have to choose one at a time. Dang, I’m getting all excited just writing about it. I think you’ll like what you get

    No worries! I ended up getting the DeLisle and the Boss Waza Tube Amp Expander. Killer combination. My gigging days are behind me, but I love all my amps, so this setup makes it easy to switch stuff quickly, and they all get the benefit of the Boss TAE.
    Just ordering a head cab to rack the two devices for a glorious switching system.
