    I believe that thing takes his effects in/out of his signal path. His phaser, flanger, delays, and chorus are always on, at all times. That thing has labels under each footswitch for each effect, and pressing the respective footswitch introduces the effect into his signal path.

    Exactly right ^^^, Stealth!

    Eddie's custom made effects switcher.

    I wonder if Ed will make that (or similar version of it) for sale to the public, to use on our own pedal boards?
    I'm sure we use different effects and such, but the principle would be the same...

    It's probably just a relay based true bypass system. Not sure the demand for it would be there.

    You're probably right.
    I was just thinking out loud... I remember when Eddie/MXR came out with his wah pedal, many people were like "WTF?"

    Haha, I do remember that! I thought it was funny cause to me it made complete sense. He'd been using wah more and more ever since FUCK. Heck, I even mocked this up and posted it here around 2006. I wasn't too far off!

    This has been discussed before... I believe it's to kick in his rackmounted delay units for his w/d/w stereo spread.
    Can't remember for sure, but it's something like that.

    Yup, DDLS stands for "Digital Delays," and it engages the wide ~400/800ms stereo delay effect. It can be heard on a bunch of dive bombs on Live in Tokyo.

    Maybe this is the new MXR/EVH product he hinted at? I know he has been using it for a while.

    That's what it used to be, but according to this dude who got to check out Ed's rig in 2012 he recently upped those values to 400/800. I gave it a shot and it sounded good to me!
