Looking to buy a GK-20 Roland 13-pin Guitar Switcher
« on: December 08, 2016, 08:11:26 PM »
I am very much in need of purchasing a GK-20 Roland 13-pin Guitar Switcher. My friend and I both have Roland GK-2 equipped guitars, along with a Roland BK-7m arranger and a Roland GI-10 unit to convert the 13 pin signal to 5 pin midi. I would like for one of us to control the arranger key changes with one guitar while the other person plays lead guitar, and then push a button and trade roles. The GK 20 box is the perfect solution, but Dr. Jones no longer makes them. :( http://www.joness.com/gr300/GK-20.htm This is the last piece to a very expensive puzzle I have been putting together. The size and functionality of the GK-20 design is perfect for my needs, along with the fact that it does not require an external power source. Any help locating one to purchase would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for this great suggestion! I wish this unit didn't require an external power source, as I am trying to keep my equipment to a minimum, but it sure has a lot of great capabilities. This is the only other solution I have seen for my needs. I may try to purchase this if I can not locate a GK-20. Thank you very much for you help, I feel encouraged. :)

If you can find one of these they work well without external power using a couple of GK-3 guitars. No power required if <200mA
Got more gear than I need...and I like it!

Well, it seems that Ralph has already sold his GKMX-42 about a week ago to a buyer in Hungary. :( My quest continues for some type of device that will allow me to live switch between two Roland GK-2 13 pin equipped guitars to one 13 pin line out. Any ideas or leads are greatly appreciated. Dr. Joness' GK-20 http://www.joness.com/gr300/GK-20.htm is the perfect solution, but he no longer makes them. Thanks to all the nice folks on VGuitar forum!
