ARTcessories - a full line of clever, affordable processing tools for live sound, stage, and studio. The ARTcessories line is designed to deliver solutions for a number of audio needs - like having phantom power, having one or two more mixing channels, testing cables, headphone processing, preamplification for microphones and turntables, and many more real-world applications. With their affordable prices and simple design, the new line of ARTcessories will satisfy the needs of working musicians and sound engineers everywhere.

The CoolSWITCH delivers full A/B-Y switching, plus parallel common in/out jacks. It lets you switch a common source signal (guitar, bass, or keyboard) between two amplifiers or amp channels. It also allows you to switch two source signals (like two different guitars) into the same amplifier. The CoolSWITCH features LED indicators to show whether A, B, or Y routing is in effect. The Y-routing combines the "A" and "B" outputs in parallel so two amps can be driven at once.

Art Cool Switch

This was great. I get a call right after I order letting me know it has shipped. Then it shows in 2 days with a bag of candy. Man who else does that . NOBODY. I will order from you folks every time. Thanks for the personal attention to me and all your customers. Now if I could just win one of your contests, but maybe Idaho not on your list for prize giveaways. Oh well I`m happy Thanks Sweetwater, Thanks Scott. The Art Cool Switch is the best a/b/y out there. To cool.

works well

works well, no noise when switching, no apparent signal loss when used a "Y" Only negative is the battery is hard to install/replace, could have done with a better design here, as well as allow for external power.

Makes noise when you switch

Does the job, but causes an audible pop when you switch when you switch from a to b or vise versa. That's not good for recording or looping. I will be looking for another switch that doesn't pop.

Dissappointing performance

I bought this unit because I wanted to keep 2 guitars connected to my rig and by using a switch i could slect which one I wanted to use without having to change plugs. This is not the unit to do that because; 1) When changing guitars, you cannot shut off the guitar that is not being used. Both Guitars are hot at all times. 2) This unit does not have an external power port to connect into my petal board. It uses a 9v battery. You cannot turn the unit off, 3) It has led's that indicate which channels are operational. As I indicated above this unit uses a battery so if you do not unplug the cables, the led's remain lit. 4) The battery compartment must be unscrewed to change batteries so after being unable to siwtch it off or connect to an external power source, the battery life is almost guaranteed to be very,very short. This unit was badly designed, I regret buying it.
