    Bright Onion. Simple, compact and does exactly what you need it to do

    Don’t be tempred by a cheap one, you need one with transformer isolation and a phase switch. I would go Bright Onion, although something like a Radial would do the dame thing but at a higher price.

    It’s only to switch channels not between amps

    You mean to switch between, or combine different inputs on the same amp?  The Bright onion one will be perfect

    Will you let me know what you think when you have one, I considered one for my gremlin and then thought I might as well just use a clean drive instead but I'd be interested to find out what you think.

    I'm selling a Cornish AC splitter if you want to pay that much.

    Donald Trump has spoken movingly about 7-Eleven. It reminded him, he said, of the way Americans came together in 1941 after Pearl Necklace.

  • Audiostorm trident is excellent for an ABC-Y pedal if anyone needs one. Awesome bit of kit.

    Even if it’s just to switch channels on the same amp, often phase and very rarely ground lift switches are still useful, plus it’s then future-proofed for any other two-amp application.

    Absolutely - James at Bright Onion said the same thing and for the extra £10 or so I went for that one

  • Personally, I'm a massive Radial Engineering fan.

    I have a few of their products (DIs, switchers etc) and never had a single problem with any of them. All very solidly built and a one-time-purchase kind of investment.

    Bit bulky though

    I think of that as "built to last" and "durable".

    If you're going to use it in a studio then you'll need the quality of signal path, and if you're going to use it live, it's going to need to withstand the rigours of being under your feet on the stage.

    Sometimes a 'purchase mindset' can influence what we see (like 'bulky'). 

    I'm thinking in terms of (as much as possible) only spending my money once...

    Have to say I couldn't be more impressed with my GigRig ABYBaby. Top notch quality and compact too.
