Switch instruments like a Pro

The JX42 V2 is a streamlined instrument and amplifier switcher that instantly provides your rig with the ability for professional, seamless changeovers without signal coloration or additional noise. Class-A signal buffers preserve the tone of your instruments, with four inputs accessible on either the front or back panel of the JX42. Large backlit on/off switches select the active input, with the ability to have multiple instruments active simultaneously. Inactive inputs feed a pair of always-on Tuner outputs, which are buffered and mirrored on the front and back panels. Remote control over the inputs is available with the optional JR-5 footswitch for hands-free operation, or using your favorite MIDI controller.

Connect two amps or a backup system

The two amplifier outputs can feed separate amps and switch between the two, or you can use them to create a redundant system with the ability to switch to the backup at the press of a button. Both outputs are isolated with premium Jensen transformers for exceptional audio quality, and feature ground lift switches to eliminate hum and buzz when connected to multiple amplifiers. Switching between the two outputs is silent and free of pops or clicks to avoid any disruption to the performance. The JX42 V2 is compatible with the Radial JR-2 footswitches, which allows you to remotely switch between the amp outputs or mute both as needed.
