The Saturnworks ABY pedal takes a single input and switches it A/B style to one of two outputs (A or B), or, with a second switch, to both at the same time (Y).
The active version features a built-in dual buffer to prevent signal loss in split (Y) mode. Each output has its own separate buffer, which keeps your tone clear and isolates the outputs against crosstalk. This means that you won’t experience tone loss in Y mode and the level of one side won’t affect the other. The dual buffers also prevent high-end signal loss over long cable runs.
The signals coming from the active ABY are in phase with one another. However, inserting devices between the ABY and your amp can alter the phase. The versions with phase inversion toggles feature active phase inverting circuits to help with potential out-of-phase issues.
Saturnworks ABY pedals feature boutique grade components and features including:
- A durable 4.5” x 2.5”x 1” heavy duty cast aluminum enclosure.
- ‘Pro’ grade switches.
- Heavy duty Neutrik brand jacks.
- An isolated jack and ground lift switch on one of the outputs, to help with ground hum issues.
- The active versions run on standard 9v DC center-negative power.
Saturnworks pedals are covered by a 1-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
