Electro-Harmonix Chillswitch gutshots

Electro-Harmonix Chillswitch is one of my favorite pedals. I mainly use it with Digitech Whammy to add some weird stuttering harmonies to sustained notes, but it combines well with other effects too. The concept behind this pedal is pretty simple and one could easily think that they are just selling a simple bypass looper with a momentary footswitch. Well, they aren't!

I bought this pedal because the switching is completely silent. There are no audible "clicks" or "pops" added in the audio signal which is usually a big problem with simple mechanical killswitch/momentary bypass looper -desings. The only problem is that the footswitch itself makes some acoustic noise. I can't understand why they didn't use a silent soft touch switch!? But I do like this pedal a lot and I can highly recommend it if you're looking for a new creative tool.
