External switches (or Aux / Auxiliary Switches) are compatible with certain guitar pedals and allow additional control over that guitar pedal.
The most common units we use these for at Goodwood are the RJM Mastermind Products (The RJM PBC6X, PBC10, GT and LT). These External Switches allow you to add 2 more footswitches to the RJM line and program them however you want simply by connecting them with a TRS cable!
Is your guitar pedal compatible with these switches?
Check your manual! These are normally open momentary switches.
One switch connects sleeve and tip, the other connects sleeve and ring
No diodes or resistors are used with these switches.

The Different Aux Switches
1550D External Switch With Buffer
This is a standard two button external / Aux switch with the addition of a locking input and buffered split.
The split is designed to send a signal to your tuner and the other side of the split to your first pedal. In reality, you can use this buffered split for many other scenarios, but this will be the most common.
1550D External Switch Only
This is the same size enclosure as the above external switch but it does not have an input section or buffer. Only the TRS external switch. This size box is ideal when using a PBC10 as it is taller and will come much closer to the height and placement of the actual PBC, making it feel like the PBC has been extended a switch wider than originally designed.
Vertical and Horizontal Mini External Switches
These switches are ideal to use when space saving is the main concern! These two switches are effectively identical other than orientation. One switch is engraved to be placed horizontally on your pedalboard, the vertical switch is (wait for it) designed to be installed vertically on your pedalboard!
There is no input section on these switches either. Just the TRS External / Aux switch.
These are made with SP550SBK (TRS Square Plugs with a Black Cap) and Mogami Cable. Rugged, long lasting and easy on the eyes. If you need other specifications for your TRS cable, check out our TRS Patch Cable Designer!
