simple as it gets but it does the job!

nightingale, 26.04.2018
this very rough and sturdy box is road worth and does what it does to do! There's no indication indicator that tells you , you're in a or B mode but you can benfit from the fact that you doesn't have to power up this switch to get them working; That means you can also run this switch on a battery powered amp while playing on the streets or camping area's. You can use it in both ways, using two guitars on one amp or one guitar on two amps or one amp and a P.A. system. I use this one in a setup where one guitar goes to an effected modelling amp (A mode) and the other end with accoustic simulator to the P.A. (B mode). The switsh is sturdy and lets you switch easily between the diffrent modes. I noticed a little hum while using Hi gain amp settings on the amp but that was solved after I rewired the switched internaly go get the not used signal to the ground

Nano Switchblade

Eurospace, 04.12.2013
EH Nano Switchblade is a simple 2-channel switch with two outputs and one input. This can be reversed so the outputs become inputs and vice versa.
You can engage one output or the other but not both at the same time. There is one foot switch, which toggles the channels. The switch is perfectly quiet - if your amp volume is down, you will hear it in the room but, unlike other (poorly built) channel switches I've used, no click comes from the speakers.

Unlike its bigger sibling, the Switchblade +, this little fella is not a true bypass unit. In theory this is a serious downside but in practice all that matters is if loss of signal occurs. Well, it doesn't - not to my rig, at least. I couldn't detect any.
In my opinion a more serious shortcoming is the absence of an LED to show which channel is active. This can be annoying, especially in the middle of a live set. On the other hand an LED would require power, albeit a tiny amount, which would mean adding a battery compartment and a DC In socket - and they have obviously decided to keep it simple.

I would recommend Nano Switchblade to anyone who wants a basic, cheap and cheerful, good quality 2-channel switch in a robust die cast box.
