The ABY pedal allows you to switch one input to two outputs, or both at the same time.

SKU: N/A Category:


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.

    Ordered one a while ago and have been very pleased with the results. While on the road I’ve used it to run two full stack bass rigs with no issues. Able to control both levels individually without losing any quality or having cross talk over the channels. Road tested and approved. Built sturdy, compact, and no batteries!

    Great product! Couldn’t find a simple active aby for bass at all, let alone one at this price. Does exactly what it should and looks good doing it. Thanks to Saturnworks and to TalkBass for cluing me in.

    I ordered a buffered ABY switch on a Tuesday, and wanted it in time for a Saturday gig. Brian worked with me to get it express mailed and it arrived Saturday am… Worked as expected and allowed selection of 2 amps. The design is compact and I had no noticeable noise or interference. This was about half the price of other buffered ABY switches.

    Thanks…..I’d order more stuff from you…
