    Product Description

    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.

    Radial BigShot ABY Features

    • True-bypass ABY amp selector with LED indicators
    • On-board transformer to eliminate hum & buzz
    • 180° 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!

    Well built and feature-packed
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Excellent value on a well-built product. I bought mine to run two amps. Take time to read the entire manual before you use it. Very informative. Not only explains what each feature does but even explains why the issues that the ground lift, polarity, and ISO switches occur. The earlier reviews suggesting LED indicators would be a nice addition refer to the older version. This current version has LED indicators. The power supply is not included but it is a non-issue if you are using the BigShot ABY with the Both switch engaged as I do. If you are using it on a pedalboard and switch between output A and output B, and your pedalboard has a power supply you do not need a separate power source. This is my first Radial product purchase and I am well pleased. Highly recommended.

    A good value product of excellent quality. I would be nice if a power supply was packaged with the pedal.

    Works Great
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This product is well built inside and out. It performs exactly as advertised. The ONLY reason I did not give it 5 stars was because it does not have LED indicators for the output selection. I knew this prior to purchase but it would have been a useful feature. I am designing a modification to add the LEDs and after that it will definitely qualify as a 5 star product for me.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Bought this to play two tube amps at the same time and it works great, didn't try the tuner output yet but I'm sure it will work fine.

    Recommended, met expectations.
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Running 2 amps one dirty, one clean. Both amps have various pedals in front of them. Works like it should, cheaper alternative than others, quiet operation. Only downside is no lights for channels.

    Exactly what I needed
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I needed an AB box to switch between channels on my 68 Fender twin. I tried a a Motley but it cracked, popped and eas noisy. I returned it and got the Bigshot and it did what I asked without letting me know it was there. Didnt color my tone at all. The lack of an indicator light isnt an issue since I can tell what channel Im on by the sound. Small but built like a brick. Used it at church was able to focus on worship and not on is this thing gonna work. It works!!
