Carl Martin / Combinator 2 / Effect Pedal For Sale
The Carl Martin Combinator 2 was designed and developed in response to many requests from guitar players who use lots of effects pedals, but are frustrated by having to press several footswitches in order to turn multiple pedals on and off.
The Combinator 2 is a non-midi programmable effects switching system that handles up to eight pedals. Each pedal is connected to one of eight individual effects loops (two with stereo returns), and then assigned to one or more of 18 groups. Pushing the program switch for a group simultaneously engages all of the pedals assigned to it. So if, say, you have a fuzz, a wah, and a chorus assigned to program switch 1, pressing that switch will turn them all on or off.
The Combinator 2 features 18 programs,- tuner output,- master mute,- three external switches on separate jack output's.
Programming is a snap. Just select bank and press one of the program buttons, press the soft buttons corresponding to the pedals you want to include, press store, and you're done.
The Combinator 2 also features a power supply, providing eight individual 9-volt taps, one for each pedal.

ESR was founded in 1990 as a professional PA sound rental company. Shortly after we began producing custom made audio equipment.
Our goal was from the very beginning to develop and produce products for the demanding professional musician, with a superior sound quality and features not seen on any other guitar effect pedal. As a result of that our first guitar effect pedal, The Hot Drive'n Boost, was introduced in 1993.
Due to our extensive knowledge of the professional music industry, and our contacts with a wide range of demanding musicians, we have been able to maintain a high quality of products and now have a range of 28 high quality guitar effect pedals, with more to come in the future.
In 2005 we released our first point point handmade tube amplifier the Custom Shop 50, the line now includes heads,- caps as well as a bass system.
