Two Amp Magic!
This is the first A/B/Y Pedal that I have ever owned. I had never tried to play through two amps at the same time before, but had long been curious about doing so. As I searched the internet to see how to do so without harming the circuity in either amp, I quickly discovered that people complained about getting a bothersome humming when using a simple A/B/Y Pedal. I must say, I was very fortunate in that I quickly stumbled onto the reviews of the Radial Bigshot ABY. I have always tried to use only True-Bypass pedals, so this met that qualification. So, after reading several user reviews, I jumped on board, and ordered it from my "go-to" guy, Brent Leuthold at Sweetwater.
I can assure you that you won't be disappointed. This pedal makes playing through two amps a very quick, out of the box, plug and play experience. Like many people had complained about, as soon as I hooked my guitar through this pedal, I immediately got the dreaded hum. BUT . . . Viola! A simple flip of the ISO switch on the top of the pedal, and I got immediate silence! I have to say . . the blending of two amplifiers is amazing! Not only do you get a fullness of sound that only two amps can create, but the possibilities of blending two different amp tones are endless, and the difference in quality of tone is beyond words! The only time I will ever use a single amp rather than playing through two amps, will only be because of the need of convenience.
And not to sound like a commercial, but Brent Leuthold at Sweetwater has consistently competitive pricing from Sweetwater, is unbeatable!
