      Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone BigShot ABY Passive Switcher:

      Well, I don't use this for any exciting on-stage or recording purposes, but I have been looking for something that would let me send the bass to both Rocksmith 2014 and my amp so I can make the bass loud enough.

      I've tried a simple "Y" cable and another switch box (not being coy, it was a long time ago and I don't remember what it was). Neither worked, resulting in a lot of hum and feedback. The "line lift" switch on the other box that was supposed to correct that actually made it worse.

      This one works, and I can now hear the bass over the Rocksmith track.

      Not just for fun (although it is) once you can actually hear your own bass over the bass in the Rocksmith track, you can hear and correct imperfections in your technique.

      I'd swear the tone selected in Rocksmith comes over the amp as well, but that seems a little impossible... :-)

        Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone BigShot ABY Passive Switcher:

        I have two of these. One I use to split a guitar signal cleanly into two on my pelboard. I have A going into the boss me - 80 and B going into the Roland GR - 55. The other one I ran backwards combining the two effect processors back to one output. It lets me use both of them independently or at the same time with no loss of tone or signal.

          Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone BigShot ABY Passive Switcher:

          This little box is great. It completely solved my ground loop hum issues. I run my guitar directly into the input jack. Then I have output A going through its own pedal chain to my Orange micro dark 4x12 rig. Then I have output B going through its own chain to my Line 6 Spider 3 for a clean channel. Toggling between each output gives me a clean and dirty channel. But I am really impressed with combining both output channels to send a signal to both amps. I am able to dial in some thick sounds using 2 amps. I love this pedal!

              Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone BigShot ABY Passive Switcher:

              I'm using this as an amp switcher. My rig is similar to Scott Lucas from local h where I play through my main guitar rig and a bass amp simultaneously.

              Couldn't do it without the bigshot! This little guy works great, grounds very well and is perfect for anyone looking to switch amps on stage on the fly.

              Highly recommended A+++++++

              Does The Trick - And More!

              By Richard Auvil

              from Western Pennsylvania

              Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone BigShot ABY Passive Switcher:

              This is my first Radial Engineering product. I purchased the Bigshot ABY used through Guitar Center. It works great to switch between two amplifiers, but I find it much more useful to switch between two basses. I also use it switch between guitar and banjo. I use "Output A" and "Output B" as instrument inputs,the "Input" becomes a signal out to my amplifier, and it works great as a switch between my instruments! One is active, the other passive, and I never seem to have a problem. It is a quick and quiet switch with no noticeable signal loss.

              delivers as advertised

              Comments about Radial Engineering Tonebone BigShot ABY Passive Switcher:

              The Radical ABY switcher effectively permits you to switch between 2 amps easily with the press of a single button. Additionally, the ABY allows you to play through both amps for a layered effect. It does not alter tone nor does it add noise to the setup. The tuner input is a nice touch. The ABY can also be used backwards for 2 guitars into a single amp. Overall, I am very please with the ABY. It is a welcome and practical addition my set up.
