The Pure Tone AB/Y Channel Selector is hand built to order with the greatest attention for quality and detail to ensure that you get the clearest noise free tone you can get and that your tone is preserved throughout your signal chain. We use ONLY high quality components such as audiophile hookup wire, high quality led’s , 1% metal film resistors, high grade film capacitors and of course our Laser Engraved Hammond enclosures. This might be considered a bit over kill by some, but not to us! Helping you get the purest and clearest noise free tone out of your rig is what we are all about. The Pedals are entirely hand made in all their parts: the circuit is manually assembled, wired and tested one by one, the die cast aluminum box is hand pierced. When ready, each single model is 24 hours continuously tested in order to identify any defect.
100% transparent - no coloration of original tone
All Jacks are isolated to eliminate ground loops.
RF Filters and Silent Switching systems are fitted to all our pedals.
We don't believe in battery power, that is why our devices are not powered by a battery.
Powered By ...................................9 DC volts
Connection ....................2.1 DC negative tip
DC INLET: Use only with a compatible 9Vdc with a center negative power supply.
INPUT: Instrument Input, use this jack to connect to your instrument.
OUT A: Use this jack to connect to an amplifier. This is the “Reference” channel.
OUT B: Use this jack to connect to a second amplifier.
Phase: This toggle switch is the Phase Reverse Switch, which is situated on the rear of the unit next to the Output B Jacks.
GROUND: Ground lift switch for output B.
Our Active AB/Y Channel Selector pedal lets you send your input to either the A or B outputs, or to both simultaneously. It has two footswitches, one selects between channel A and channel B and the other turns both channels on at the same time.
It comes with the added benefits of being active and so having both Channel A and B outputs going via isolation transformers. With the pedal being active it means that there will be no signal loss when the input signal is split to both outputs, so all outputs are identical in signal level so there will be no difference in performance by changing outputs and having output B going via an isolation transformer means there will be no ground hum ("ground loops") issues, but in any case you will encounter any ground loops due to faulty amplifier grounding, channel B was fitted with an independent ground isolation on/off toggle switch. When using more than one amplifier there is a possibility of the second amplifier being out of phase with the first, so we fitted a toggle switch on the rear of the pedal that reverses the phase of output B incase there are any phase issues when using both amps.
*The way to test this is to use just one amp, then add the second. The volume should increase slightly and be "fuller". If there is a reduction in volume or bass when the second amp is added then that one is out of phase. The Channel Selector offers low impedance outputs to drive long guitar cables without the loss of tone or level. High-intensity LEDs make it easy to read off switching state A or B, or A and B, even under high-power spots. With an optional Tuner out to provide a direct output enabling permanent isolated connection of a tuner, regardless of whether which output
Our Channel Switching System is the ultimate stand-alone, maximum signal-fidelity tool that was designed to allow you to use several amps, in a multitude of ways, both safely and quietly to route your guitar into multiple amplifiers without any “ground loop hum” utilizing low-noise active circuitry and high quality transformers and other top of the line components. The pedal is powered via the 9v Boss style 2.1mm DC socket (centre negative). please ensure your amps are connected to a reliable power ground at all times
