The Radial BigShot ABY is a compact ABY switcher that enables you to either switch between two amplifiers or combine the signal when you want both amps to play at the same time.

• True-bypass ABY amp selector with LED indicators
• On-board transformer to eliminate hum & buzz
• 180 degree polarity reverse to phase-match amps
• 100% passive audio path, does not require power

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 built-in isolation transformer and ground lift switch. Once engaged, you can toggle the polarity of the second amplifier to ensure both amps play in absolute phase.

In use, the BigShot ABY is both simple to use and efficient on stage. When powered by an external 9V supply or pedalboard power brick, full size super-bright LEDs spring to life to provide instant on-stage amplifier status readout. When power is unavailable, the passive audio signal path still works, unaffected. The compact yet ultra-rugged design makes the BigShot ABY ideal for pedalboards where space is always at a premium.

The BigShot ABY... the most versatile true-bypass switcher made today!

This works great and feels solid. It feels like it will out live me. It lets me sort out the issues you get when you pair up amps just like advertised. I like that you can run it without power and I like that it is a quality Canadian product.

Product works extremely well with both my effects chains. It works perfectly with the Radial Mix Blender. I now have total control over my effects! I can mix and match whatever I want! I can now connect all the effects to my send/return jacks on my Blackstar amp. If you have a lot of pedals, this product is for you! I do recommend the Mix Blender to combine the effects into one signal.
