The Radial BigShot i/o is an easy-to-use instrument selector switch that lets you quickly transition between any two instruments and drive the signal to your amp. Because the i/o is 100% true-bypass, it addresses the needs of the most demanding purist.
To further enhance connectivity, input-B is equipped with a level control called DIM that lets you reduce the signal from the louder of your two instruments so that both instruments are matched to the same volume level when they reach the amplifier. When passive instruments are used, a unique 'bright' switch lets you compensate for high frequency loss due to longer cables.

To enhance onstage functionality, the BigShot i/o is equipped with a tuner output. With a simple foot stomp on the MUTE switch, the sound going to the amp is turned off and diverted to the tuner for quiet onstage adjustments. An 'always on' switch also permits on-the-fly quiet tuning should you wish to have the tuner on at all times.

Compact, extremely rugged and completely passive, the BigShot i/o does not require any powering to make it work. This makes it ideal for pedalboards where the use of batteries or power supplies is painful! The BigShot i/o is also perfect for all you instruments and hi-Z line-level signal switching.

Radial Engineering BigShot I/O Selector Switch Features:

  • Toggle two instruments with single foot stomp
    Adjustable volume control to match levels
    Separate tuner output and mute switch
    Compact and rugged for pedalboards
    Load compensation for long cables

  • Does what it said it would. Nicely

    As reviewed by small time guitarist on 8/19/2010

    Although a bit pricey, the unit does what it said it would. I have not used the DIM feature (yet). But all in all, when I considered the time it would take for me to make one for myself (and work out all the kinks by doing so) I got something better than what I originally I wanted when I purchased this product. The Tuner switch is a really great feature. Allows me to keep my tuner plugged in on stage and within seconds (like between songs) I can check the tuning if I need to without changing volume levels on my instruments. This is especially useful when switching between 2 guitars and playing outdoors where the climate can untune a guitar or bass that was tuned prior to use. I would like to see Radial make an extension to this product (with DIM s for each input) for when I need to use 3 or more guitars. (ie Electric, Classical, Dreadnought, ++)

  • Great little switch

    As reviewed by Daniel James on 6/21/2013

    I use this live to switch between my keyboard and guitar, both of which feed into the same effect chain. No tone degradation that I've noticed. The dim option is great for matching levels between the instruments. Nice that it doesn't require power. Better than a mixer in that I don't have to worry about crossover tones; e.g. when I switch to keys and put the guitar down. I highly recommend it!
