It works! I can now run 2 condenser mics into the single input of my effects pedal!

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Metal housing. Seems very well built. I will be using it in a live situation early June so dependability will be tested and proven then.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
I bought this as a combiner. If you have limited XLR inputs in either your mixer or an effects processor, this will enable you to put 2 mics into 1 input. I bought a TC Hellicon Voice Tone Create just for decent reverbs and a few special effects for specific songs on stage. I am a vocalist and a flutist and did not want to always be anchored to the mic stand but that single input on the TC would not allow me to use the 2 condenser that I have. (Audio Technica ATM710 for vocals and K&K Silver bullet condenser for the flute.) So the TC Hellicon's Phantom Power switch will pass through to the Audio Technica via the MAIN XLR and the Silver Bullets' own pre amp will power itself pre-ART Split/Com. So the ART Split/Com can combine either two dynamic mics, one dynamic and one condenser and even 2 condenser!
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Plug n Play. Just experiment a little with that phase switch. When I first fired it up, I sounded perfect. Both condensers sounded great and balanced. After playing though it for a week, I finally decided to switch the phase switch and it improved the apparent line level balance between the two mics even more!
How is the tone?
This unit in the chain did not effect the sound of either mics. So I guess it added nothing negative. No hums, etc...
