    Works Great

    Nice pedal that allows you to switch between 2 amps or switch between 2 instruments into 1 amp. Solid and durable pedal.

    Perfect for the job

    I use two different bases (a "P" and a fretless Jazz) on any given gig. The Whirlwind Selector enables me to switch between the two without having to fuss with chords. Switch is quiet and the handy lights clearly indicate which channel is selected. Everything you need, nothing you don't. I use a 1 Spot to connect it to A/C power so that I don't have to worry about a battery.

    Simple & Diehard

    These boxes are simple to set-up and use, and durable as hell. We use them all the time for keys and instruments, and they never let us down.

    ultra quiet switching

    I use one to switch channels on my Marshall & another one to switch between amps. THERE IS NO SWITCH NOISE! It's worth the cost. ps.1- unplug from the I/O port when not in use to prolong battery life. ps.2-when using 2 amps, make sure both are plugged into the same electrical outlet/circuit to prevent ground -loop noise.

    Nice toy

    The box works great (silent switching back and forth) but I was more impressed with the customer service. I got a call from SW within 8 minutes of the order to see if all was well.

    Super Silent Switch

    I bought one of these to switch two guitars into one amp. I was getting tired of having to turn down my amp to prevent the loud pops that occurred every time I unplugged a guitar, and plugged in another one. This A/B switch is a perfect addition to my stage set. I can switch from my PRS, to my Tele, with no noise at all. It's completely silent, and has no effect on the sound. This little bada$$ is virtually transparent in the signal chain. I would have rated this with five stars if the price was a little cheaper, but overall, I'm very happy I bought one.

    Very Quiet A/B!

    For a very quiet switching A/B pedal, this is it. I use it between 2 pedal boards and it all good.

    5 star quality but it didn't work for me. It's something to do with amps being out of phase or ground loop but I doubt it's a ground issue. We tried several different amps, cords, guitars, with and without a noise gate. We even tried a different brand aby switch so i' m thinking it's a common issue without the phase and ground adjustments of some other types or brands. The problem is at stage volume with quality tube amps one side is going to have a loud hum even when switched off. If you turn up the gain on the amps it has a tremendous roar. It's a good quality, made in the good ole usa piece of equipment but I just couldn't use it. :(

    Whirlwind A-B box

    Pros : It works fine .Does what it's suppose to do.Seems to be quiet.
    Cons : Color configuration is horrible and immpossible to read.Don't like having to disconnect input jack to shut off led when not in use.

    Lose gain

    When I play my PRS through this pedal and select "Both" I lose massive input volume going to my amp. My Mesa Boogie Mark IV goes from fat beast to thin and weak even with a brand new battery
