If you're looking to add MIDI capabilities to your amplifier (or other non-MIDI equipment), the Mini Amp Gizmo is your solution. It can interface to virtually any equipment that uses a footswitch jack or 1/4" external switching jack(s). Once your equipment is connected to the Mini Amp Gizmo, you'll be able to control all of its footswitchable features from any standard MIDI controller.
By simplifying the Mini Amp Gizmo to have a single switching jack, we were able to reduce both the cost and size compared to the original Amp Gizmo. Yet the Mini Amp Gizmo still features the ease of use and versatility the original Amp Gizmo is known for.
This is a list of amplifiers that we know are compatible with the Mini Amp Gizmo. Compatibility means that the amp's channels and other footswitchable functions can be controlled by your RJM product. If your amplifier is not listed here, please contact us. We'll help you figure out if your amp is compatible.
Most amps that have 1/4" switching jacks are compatible with our products using our 1/4" adapter cable (part number AC-4QTRS-10). This cable connects to the 8-pin jacks on our products and has four 1/4" stereo plugs on the other side. This works with almost all amps with one to four 1/4" switching jacks.

The Mini Amp Gizmo is genius!
It is the nucleus of my sound universe!
If I didn't have it, I would have to perform the ancient ritual of the tap dance, instead of the future art of sound manipulation!

Thanks to you guys - these Mini's really permitted my envisioned setup to become reality without an expensive custom solution.

I got the Gizmo on Friday, literally a few hours before loading up my gear to go on the road, so the timing was excellent! Had a question while setting it up, so I called you guys and you helped me fix it in a couple of minutes. Thank you so much! So far it works great, and made my footswitching infinitely more convinient.
