    Actually, it's the same as a Dumble clone footswitch. We can definitely build that one for any of our products that have a function switching / amp jack.

    Hey Ron,
    So I finally pulled the trigger and ordered a King Kong. Was wondering how to order the interface cable from your online shop. And is APO shipping possible?

    Also, can the amp gizmo switch two amps at once? For example, one using the interface while the other use 1/4" jacks. I realize ground loop is possible, but is it at least safe?

    Thanks.

    Yes, APO shipping is possible using USPS. Here's a link to the cable:

    https://shop.rjmmusic.com/dumble-ods-and-clones-interface-cable-5-pin-180-degree-connector/

    Yes, the Amp Gizmo can switch two amps at once. The 1/4-inch jacks are isolated from each other and from the 8 pin jack, so there's no chance of ground loops. The only thing to watch out for is that each switch affects both the 8-pin and the 1/4-inch jack. For example, turning on switch 1 activates the first pin of the 8-pin jack and also the tip of the Switch 1/2 jack. This can be used to your advantage if you want two amps to switch simultaneously, or you can just choose to use 1/4-inch jacks that don't overlap with the switches the 8-pin cable uses.

    Yep, I did take the switching scheme into consideration. It's really good to know that 8 pin DIN and 1/4" are isolated. Thank you sir for the info and link!
