True bypass ABY amp selector with tuner out.
On-board transformer to eliminate ground buzz.
180 degree polarity reverse to phase-match amps.
Compact and rugged for pedalboards.
Plug and play; easy to use.

Designed for the purist, the Radial BigShot ABY is an ultra compact, 100% passive foot switch that provides true bypass, ABY amp switching capabilities with A or B toggle and A + B combine functionality. This assures the guitar signal is routed directly to the amp without any buffering, loading or tone altering circuits.

To add versatility, the BigShot ABY has a built-in transformer that can be engaged to eliminate troublesome ground loops. Once on, you can also ensure your two amps are properly in phase using the 180 degree polarity reverse switch.

The compact, yet ultra rugged design makes the BigShot ABY ideal for pedalboard designs where space is always at a premium. Furthermore, because it does not require power to make it work, it eliminates the need for batteries and space hungry power supplies.

Amazing pedal. I use this to feed a Recto and Rev1 and I doubt I'll be able to use just one amp now.... so addictive. Ive switched back and forth between hardwire and iso out and 8 can't really tell that it's rolling off high frequencies. Imy also feeding the ABY with a EHX Crayon as a boost. Very well built. Will recommend to anyone.

The less time spent on set up, the more time left to play... Great product, very simple to use. The fact that it passive, and does not require power makes it very convenient to use. Even with a 4-cable-method set-up with a tube amp and an multi fx unit, it works fine. I pick cables as short as possible for this set up. The tuner-out is the icing on the cake... Highly recommended.

Works as promised, and does it well. Decent price for value. Love that it's passive, Play with a Mesa TransAtlantic combined with a Mesa Mini Rectifier through a 4 x12 Road king cab. Sounds incredible together

I use this for my Vox AC30, to switch between the Top Boost and the Normal channel, or to 'blend' the sound, I can turn both of them on simultaneously for the most versatility. If you have a Mesa, I think you can do the same sort of thing. Also, this is a great switcher between amplifiers as well. Great quality product. I'm glad I have it on my pedalboard.
