Radial Hot Shot ABi Mic/Line Switcher
The HotShot ABi is a balanced signal source selector that allows the user to instantly select between 2 signal sources by depressing a latching footswitch. As it is completely passive, powering is not required to make it work.
The HotShot ABi is ideal for applications such as switching between 2 dynamic microphones on a stage or selecting between 2 audio sources. The latching switch also opens the door for other useful operations: These include using the HotShot ABi as a mute to turn off a microphone; to select between 2 wireless receivers for live sound system backup; for stereo guitars it can be used to select between 2 instruments; and for community hall assemblies, it provides the moderator with remote control over 2 audience microphones.
Ultra-compact and extremely rugged, the HotShot is made tough for years of trouble free performance and is backed-up with a 3-year transferable warranty.

Select Between 2 Mics on Stage
Use the ABi to select between 2 mics on stage! Great for multi-instrumentalists that may require a mic over a keyboard and another when playing guitar.
Select Between 2 Sources
Use the ABi to select between a iPod and a computer for audio visual presentations. Easy to use with balanced and unbalanced signals and can be made to work with unbalanced stereo signals with shared grounds.
Select Between "On" and "Mute"
In its simplest form, use the ABi as a mute foot switch to allow the entertainer to clear his throat or cough without the offensive sounds reaching the audience. Furthermore, by reducing the number of mics that are 'active' on stage, one can significantly reduce the spill and leakage; the most common cause of stage feedback.
