Red Hot Chili Peppers tour the world with Whirlwind

RHCP incorporate the brand new MultiSelector Pro into their arsenal, and we welcome them into our family!

Few rock groups of the '80s broke down as many musical barriers and were as original as the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Creating an intoxicating new musical style by combining funk and punk rock together (with an explosive stage show, to boot), the Red Hot Chili Peppers spawned a slew of imitators in their wake, but still managed to be the leaders of the pack by the dawn of the 21st century. It was no wonder that when they came to us for their instrument switching needs we knew excactly what they needed, and the answer was our MultiSelector Pro.  Given the level of performance these guys have been delivering for over 20 some odd years, the timing couldn't be better. We just released the new MultiSelector Pro, loaded with every well thought out touring solution you could ask for in a instrument switcher.

The Multiselector Pro is a brand new product that evolved from our rack mount version of the Selector a/b box. The design improvements were enough to give this product a whole new name as well as being a valuable addition to the ever expanding Multiselector family. The most notable advance was including a tuner output on the front and rear. All three non-active inputs are routed to the tuner outputs so a guitar tech can tune any instrument in a non active channel without unplugging it, adding a time saving convenience, as well as eliminating potential human error during a guitar change. In a nut shell, The MultiSelector PRO allows selection of any 1 of 4 inputs to a single output. Each of the four inputs is electronically buffered with a 1 MegOhm input impedance which emulates a proper amplifier load and prevents any degradation to the instrument’s tone. Signals pass through the MultiSelector PRO transparently, with no coloration and the digitally controlled optical switching is completely silent. Ask and ye shall receive!

We would like to thank The Red Hot Chili Peppers for over two decades of sold out performances, over 20 albums, and most of all, thank you for choosing Whirlwind.
