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 180º 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 powering to make it work, it eliminates the need for batteries and space hungry power supplies.

 

BigShot™ ABY with two amps and tuner:
This setup lets you select between two amplifiers with the right footswitch and combine both amps with the left footswitch. The always-on tuner output adds the convenience of 'anytime' tuning adjustments.

In this setup:

• Instrument goes into the ABY's INPUT jack
• Amp-A connects to the the OUTPUT-A jack, Amp-B to OUTPUT-B
• Tuner is connected to the ABY's dedicated tuner-out jack


 

BigShot™ ABY amp / tuner mute:
With this setup you can mute your amp for a quick tuneup with a single footpress of the right (A-B toggle) footswitch. In this scenario, the tuner is completely out of the circuit when not needed for the purest guitar tone.

In this setup:

• Instrument goes into the ABY's INPUT jack
• Amp connects to the ABY's OUTPUT-A jack
• Tuner is connected to the ABY's OUTPUT-B jack


 

BigShot™ ABY as an instrument selector:
To illustrate the versitility of the ABY, you can use it 'backwards' as an instrument selector! Switch between the two instruments with the right footswitch.

In this setup:

• Your amp gets its signal from the ABY's INPUT jack
• One guitar connects to the OUTPUT-A jack, the other to OUTPUT-B
• Tuner is connected to the ABY's dedicated tuner-out jack
