ABY BABY

Compact perfection for using two amps in any combination,

offering phase control and isolation for ultimate noise-free flexibility.

WHY ABY BABY ?

There are many situations in which you need to split and/or combine dual signal paths and switch between them. The most common is when using two guitar amps, either in a stereo, dual-mono or wet/dry configuration. The minute you split a signal, however, you run into two possible problems: ground loop hum and potential phase reversal. ABY Baby solves them both thanks to the isolated, phase-reversible output B.

In addition, output A offers the option of true bypass or buffered outs depending on your tonal and pedal/amp needs.

We've also added a Flip Flop mode for instant, one-touch switching between A and B should that be your need.

 

ABY Baby uses our own-design OptoKick optical footswitches for maximum reliability and durability. We believe they are the very best footswitches available.

Compact, flexible and roadworthy – ABY Baby!

FAQs

How is this different from QMX2?

Quartermaster QMX2 can be used as an ABY switcher, however it does not have integral phase correction and isolated outputs. This is a dedicated ABY switcher. QMX 2 is primarily a two-loop strip switcher for effects.

Is output B true bypass or buffered?

It's buffered. Output A gives you the option of either.
