Vancouver, BC (July 11, 2016)—Radial Engineering has updated its Tonebone BigShot ABY guitar amp switcher.
The BigShot ABY is a true-bypass switcher that incorporates an isolation transformer which may be switched into the circuit to eliminate noise when needed. It also features super-bright LEDs, indicating which amp is in use, that illuminate the instant users connect a 9VDC power supply or multi-pedal power-brick."
The compact true-bypass ABY switcher is completely passive, so there are no tone altering buffers in between the guitar and the amplifier. The BigShot ABY is also equipped with a separate tuner out. This 'always on' output feeds a tuner for constant monitoring while keeping it out of the signal chain.
Should users experience hum and buzz problems due to ground loops, the BigShot ABY offers a built-in isolation transformer and ground lift switch. Once engaged, it can toggle the polarity of the second amplifier to ensure both amps play in absolute phase.
When power is unavailable, the passive audio signal path still works, unaffected. Made Radial-tough in Canada from 14-gauge steel, the BigShot ABY is supported with a 3-year transferable warranty.
