Radial BigShot ™ ABY True Bypass Guitar Amp Switcher / Selector
The Radial BigShot ABY is a compact ABY switcher than enables you to either switch between two amplifiers or combine the signal when you want both amps to play at the same time.
Using the ABY to switch channels on an amp
The BigShot ABY can also be used to switch channels on older vintage amps that do not have remote switching. Simply send the OUT-A and OUT-B to the two channels on your amp and select channels as needed.
Designed for the purist
This true-bypass ABY switcher is completely passive meaning that there are no tone altering buffers in between the guitar and the amplifier. With the BigShot ABY, you get the pure tone from your guitar plugged direct into your amp! To add versatility, the BigShot ABY is also equipped with a separate tuner out. This 'always on' output feeds your tuner for constant monitoring while keeping it out of the signal chain. Should you experience hum and buzz problems due to ground loops, the BigShot ABY comes to the rescue with a ground lift switch and built-in isolation transformer. Once engaged, you can toggle the polarity of the second amplifier to ensure both amps play in absolute phase.
The compact yet ultra rugged design makes the BigShot ABY ideal for pedalboards where space is always at a premium. Furthermore, because it does not require any power to make it work, it eliminates the need for batteries and space hungry power supplies.

RADIAL ABYBy: Damian on 20 April 2019Great Canadian made product! Allows me to use both channels on my twin reverb simultaneously, and most importantly - keep in phase. I bought it via the eBay Swamp store and it all went smoothly. I even got direct emails and a PDF invoice from Swamp.
