Product Description

ART Cool Switch ABY Switch
A/B-Y switching works two ways. It lets you switch a common source signal (guitar, bass or keyboard) between two amplifiers or amp channels. Or conversely, it lets you switch two source signals (ie, two different guitars) into the same amplifier. A good quality A/B-Y switcher will also provide LEDs or other indicators to show whether A, B or Y routing is in effect. The Y routing combines both the A and B outputs in parallel so that two amplifiers can be driven at once. The Coolswitch provides full A/B-Y switching functionality, plus parallel Common in/out jacks.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of ART products.

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (15 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Needs redesign!"
Sound: Sound levels vary. Sometimes it passes full level, sometimes it attenuates, you just have to click the switch a couple of times to hear the difference. Feature: It sorely needs a separate led that stays dedicated to the a/b mode while you are in the y mode. Ease of Use: The switches are too close together, and when you are in a hurry you can easily stomp both switches leaving you in a bad place. I rebuilt mine in a new box I got at radio shack, I chopped the board apart and split the switches farther apart. Much better. Quality: This brings up the other reason I had to rebuild it. The in-out jacks do not create a positive lock on your cables. More than once during a performance a cable would just fall loose. I replaced them with cheap jacks from radio shack which make a tight click when you insert the cable and they hold securely. Value: Well it was cheap, but there isn't much to it. Having rebuilt this one I now know that I will be building my own from scratch very soon, so I can eliminate the level inconsistency problem. It doesn't bother me too bad because I am using an ART TPS2 tube preamp following the switch and that gives me quite a bit of tube compression. Great pre-amp! Manufacturer Support: Honestly, I give them the benefit of the doubt, but I have not tried to contact them about my problems, what are they going to do? Short of a complete redesign there is nothing they could do.

ART Cool Switch ABY Customer Review
Sound: I just bought it and will be looking for a differant one that will switch SILNTLY. I took the chance wilth the little to no info I could find on this and lost. What's with the big clunky bang when I switch the pedal? Guess you get what you pay for. Feature: The A/B-Y part is very nice. I can play in one or two amps at the same time . The LED light is working ... nice to know where you stand with this thing visually. Quality: It seems solid. I've only had it two days . Value: I'd pay more for a silent switch that used good old American HARD steel screws (that won't strip after using them twice). Overall: If they'll eat my return postage I'll send it back to get a silent switch.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
