MrGreat product, particularly for the price. Fits my board perfectly, easy to set up, program and use. Sound much improved from my previous daisy chain set up. Should have bought it sooner. Hopefully it will continue to operate trouble free for many years. I was also happy with the speed with which it was shipped and delivered. Many thanks Artist Guitars.

Switchy McSwitchfaceOnly just played with it for a while but does exactly what it is supposed to do. Easy to program and saves the tap dancing.
Some more useful(?) infoThis is not another review for the PXL8 per se, since I already wrote a long-winded one back in February 2017. However, I thought it may be useful to add some additional comments that may be of interest to other users, or those contemplating purchasing this box. ………. In the almost-two years since I bought mine, my PXL8 from AG has continued to be a real workhorse, and super-reliable. There was only one slight negative for me — as I play both acoustic and solid body, routing out to different amps for each, I still was using A-B switches at either end of the PXL8 to flip between Ovation and Strat guitars, and then between Hartke (acoustic) and Mesa Boogie (electric) amps. So ….. while the PXL8 took care of effects switching for each guitar, I was still forced to do a bit of pedal dancing to also select the guitar and amp I was using for a particular number. ………. But recently, I decided to experiment further with the PXL8, and found an interesting feature that doesn’t seem to be mentioned in the documentation — perhaps I’m dumb, but it had never occurred to me that you DON’T need to use both the Send and Return jacks on any particular “pedal” port. In fact, you can use just the Return jack to bring in a guitar, or just the Send jack to output to an amp. So, to put all that together — and what had me celebrating — was that I could use the PXL8 as a guitar and amp switcher, thereby allowing one-button selection of (a) the guitar, (b) the effects for that guitar, and (c) the amp to be used for that guitar. Let me finish with a practical example of my new set-up ….. PORT 1: Ovation directly into the Return jack (Send jack unused); PORT 2: Strat directly into the Return jack (Send jack unused); PORT 3: Tuner (to be used for either guitar); PORT 4: Acoustic effects pedals; PORTS 5/6: Electric effects pedals; PORT 7: Send jack direct output to acoustic amp (Return jack unused); PORT 8: Send jack direct output to electric amp (Return jack unused). I then have Button “D” set up as my “Acoustic” button — it selects Port 1 (acoustic guitar in), Port 3 (tuner, in case I need it), Port 4 (acoustic effects pedals), and Port 7 (out to acoustic amp), while Button “C” is my “Electric” button — it selects Port 2 (electric guitar in), Port 3 (tuner, in case I need it), Ports 5/6 (electric effects pedals), and Port 8 (out to electric amp). The nett effect (excuse the pun) is that, when I pick up my Ovation, and hit Button D, I automatically have selected the right guitar, the right effects, and the right amp, all with just one button press. Similarly, when I pick up my Strat, and hit Button C, I get everything I need for electric, also with just one button press. (Of course, you could also program Buttons A and B in a similar fashion, but with different effects pedal combinations.) Incidentally, I have Button A set up with no port selections whatsoever, which makes it invaluable as a Mute pedal. ………. In summary, then, if you’re a multiple instrument / multiple amp user, the PXL8 can eliminate separate A-B switch boxes and do the complete job for you!
Great ProductI really like this controller, it’s easy to use and for the price it’s a lot of bang for your buck.
