Behringer AB200 Dual A/B Switch Pedal

No longer available at zZounds
Whether you want to run two input signals into a single output or vice versa, the Behringer AB200 dual A/B switch pedal opens new doors of connectivity.

This universal, ultra-compact 2-channel footswitch is an ideal accessory for stage and studio applications. Use it on gear featuring external control functions such as guitar amps, keyboards, rhythm machines, lighting products and so on. You can easily switch between two input signals into one output or vice versa (e.g. switch between two guitars using one amplifier or two amplifiers with one guitar). Latching/non-latching modes are selectable for both channels: Non-latch mode momentarily engages the switch while you hold down the pedal, Latch mode changes the On/Off status each time you press the pedal.

Features relay switching technology for ultra-high impedance and highest signal integrity. There are dedicated LED indicators for precise status control, and you can combine multiple AB200s by using the side-mount interlock. You will need one 9 V battery for operation (not included).

When this breaks, I'll attempt to fix it. Better switches and connectors. If I can't fix it, then maybe I'll buy another Behringer, because I'm cheap. We'll see.

Sound
It's clean. No detectable coloration, hum or hiss.

Features
It's inexpensive. 2 switches are great. You can select between latch and non-latch. These dovetail together with other AB200 to make a solid pedal board and I think they will also dovetail with the BOSS switch. The major drawback is the lack of 9v power input. You have to unscrew and open the case to change the battery. There is no on/off switch.

Ease of Use
If you can step you can use this. -The battery is a pain to change, requiring disassembly. The battery will go dead if you leave your gear plugged in. Plugging and unplugging gear will wear it out cause it uses cheap connectors. I immediately modified mine with a Godlyke 9v battery adapter and my trusty Dremel. Now I don't have to change batteries or unplug my gear ever.

Quality
I've opened it and inspected the parts. The parts are cheap and not at all robust. Be gentle with this. Really gentle. This is ok for a home/hobby setup, but you can't gig with this. Not good for children or excitable teens 'cause they are really tough on pedals.

Value
What can you really expect from a XX pedal? I still buy a lot of Behringer. Their read more gear is cheap but I have yet to have a problem.

Manufacturer Support
unknown, I won't call for a XX dollar pedal. I'll just fix it myself.

The Wow Factor
This solves a problem in my home rig for low cost and I did not lust for it. If it lasts, then great. I cheaped out and went with Behringer instead of Boss. Boss is better and more robust but still not sexy.
