A/B-Y Switch
A/B-Y switching works two ways. It lets you switch a common
source signal (guitar, bass or keyboard) between two amplifiers
or amp channels. Or conversely, it lets you switch two source
signals (ie, two different guitars) into the same amplifier. A good
quality A/B-Y switcher will also provide LEDs or other indicators
to show whether A, B or Y routing is in effect. The Y routing
combines both the A and B outputs in parallel so that two
amplifiers can be driven at once.
The CoolSWITCH provides full A/B-Y switching functionality,
plus parallel Common in/out jacks.
• A and B LEDs illuminate to indicate selected signal routing.
Both LEDs illuminated indicates Y routing.
• Dual footswitches permit selective A/B switching or the
combining of both A&B as with a Y adapter.
• Dual common jacks permit connecting something in parallel
with the input source – such as a guitar tuner.
• Power: 9V Battery (included)
• Dimensions: 3.75 x 2.5 x 1.5 inches (90mm x 63mm x 40mm)
• Weight: 1lb (454g)
b.) Using two more shielded cables connect the A jack to the input
of amp A and the B jack to the input of amp B.
c.) Depress the A/B footswitch to select amplifiers. One of the two
LEDs will illuminate to tell you which amp is selected.
d.) To get both amps working at once, depress the Y footswitch.
When both amps are working, both LEDs will be on.
Two instruments being selected for one amplifier:
a.) Using shielded guitar cords, plug one instrument into the A
jack and the other into the B jack.
b.) Using a third shielded cable, connect one of the Common jacks
to the input of the amplifier.
c.) Now depress the A/B footswitch to select the desired
instrument. Please note that is not generally advisable to
use the Y function in this setup (i.e. to have both instruments
going into the amp at once).
d.) The LEDs will indicate that instrument A or B is connected
to the amplifier.
One instrument switching between two amplifiers:
a.) Plug your instrument cable into one of the jacks marked
Common. If you have a guitar tuner you may connect it to
the other Common jack with an extra guitar cord or shielded
patch cable.
