    After 10+ years of providing high quality guitar audio and MIDI switching products at reasonable prices, Axess Electronics will cease all manufacturing and production - effective immediately.

    This decision is bittersweet, but in recent years it has become impossible for me to manage all aspects of the business while trying to balance my personal/family life. I have thoroughly enjoyed trying to provide the best products and the best support to world-wide bedroom bashers, weekend warriors and renowned professional guitarists, but it is time to focus on my family and myself.

    What's next?

    (1) Axess Electronics and all its product designs are up for sale, and will be for a period of at least one month while prospective offers come in...

    (2) I will seek full-time employment, preferably in the MI industry, and/or I will try to continue running Axess Electronics as a product design and development company providing design services under contract to other companies/individuals.

    Serious enquiries/offers regarding either of the above can be initiated by sending me an email at

    (3) Support and repair/service will continue, free of charge, as per the current Product Warranty for all products purchased directly from Axess Electronics in 2009 (applies only to the original owner).

    (4) Support and repair/service for products purchased prior to 2009 will be subject to the following fees - $60cad/hr (billed in 15 minute increments) and $75cad/hr (billed hourly) for on-site support.

    Support requests can be initiated by sending an email to

    (5) A website with historical/reference product information (i.e. features, pictures, user manuals, software...) will be up as soon as possible.

    I would like to thank all of the guitarists, industry insiders, musicians and touring techs I have met, dealt with and/or befriended over the years for making Axess Electronics what it is, and for all the kind words, product praise and public support - it was a GREAT ride!

    This started over a year ago, when they had one of their major suppliers close their doors, taking with them hundreds of Axess units that Mario was waiting for. He never really recovered from that. He tried finding another supplier, then underwent a "restructuring" that looked promising, but i guess wasn't successful in the end.

    Mario made great products, and i hope he's successful in finding someone to carry on the product line.

    Well, shit.

    There just aren't that many people providing this sort of "rig integration" gear aimed at the semi-professional musician. RJM is the next I can think of, but the Amp Gizmo is overkill for a whole lot of people with two and three channel amps.

    Voodoo Lab has had a control switcher on their site with "preliminary info" for at least a year now, but to my knowledge, they haven't put it out as a product yet.

    I had an order in for a Control Function Switcher right before their supplier bailed on them in December 2008.
