Göran G., 21.10.2015
I bought this Lead Foot ABY to switch between - and mix together - the left and the right channel on my 22500 Loper's stereo output.

To test channel interference, I used the A and B 1/4" jacks as inputs in which I sent a 0 dB (1 kHz) signal. I connected one of the parallel 1/4" jacks as output to a HI-Z input on an Audio Interface to measure signal strength. There was no change in the signal on the selected channel, but there was a crosstalk of -28dB from the non-selected channel. When A and B input were linked together, the sum of the signals was +6dB.

The buttons are fitted with just 4 cm distance between them which means that you need to be a bit accurate not to press the wrong button by misstake. The advantage is that you can easily press both buttons at the same time if you need to.

When both A and B are active at the same time, both LEDs are illuminated. Therefore - if you forgot the previous A/B setting, you can not determine which of the A and B jacks that becomes active when the Y-connection is disabled. (This could have been encoded with the use of multicolor LEDs.) The LEDs are small and sits deep in the panel and is therefore a little difficult to read in bright light and/or at a large viewing angle, but mostly this is no problem.

There was no problem to get the 9V battery in and out of the box. The LEDs are activated whenever a plug is inserted in one of the "parallel" in/out jacks.

The Lead Foot ABY switch pedal does what it is meant to do. Feels robust, and has a good price

No difference between Lead ABY and other expensive brands
Zoka, 25.04.2021
This is the very good ABY switcher. my opinion is there is no difference between Lead ABY and other expensive brands. The size of the Lead Foot ABY is just right for me. I can keep 2 guitars plugged in with the ability to quickly & noiselessly switch them out within seconds. At the end of the night, I just unplug it and it tucks away perfectly into my pedal board. Finally, it only takes a single AA battery which lasts a long time as long as you remember to unplug your cables. If you're in need of an excellent AB box, this is the one to get, especially for the price.

good, cheap switcher
RaimondsKazuss, 17.12.2020
At the moment of purchase this was the cheapest A/B switcher available, but after a year of heavy usage it hasn't let me down. The only this I would add is an option to power it with an external power supply. I don't like using batteries.

If you want 2 separate instruments into one amp A - B this thing works great. Battery is not necessary.
