Two basses one amp

Recommended Posts

Can you suggest a  a/b pedal to connect  two basses to the same amp & switch between the two I would need level control   for each .

Radial Bigshot I/O

GigRigThree2One

Palmer AB-I

 

The Gigrig is the only one with two level controls (well three actually), but in reality you probably only need to attenuate the louder bass down to the level of the other one or vice versa so one level control may suffice! Is the smallest and supports 3 instruments, but is also the most expensive. The Palmer only has multi stage pad switches rather than a volume knob so isn't as adjustable, but it is the cheapest.

Someone like Bright Onion could custom build you a switcher with level controls/indicator LEDs etc in a compact enclosure for relatively little money. I have one:

That said, the GigRig Three2One looks glorious!

The Boss LS-2 will do it, and with many more options too!

I've used mine for this too. They go for cheap 2nd hand!

Micro mixer??

I have a couple of these - ideal for when using a drum machine, etc.

I've been using a Pitchblack+ for a few years now:

Granted, it's about twice the size of a regular pitchblack, but having your A/B and tuner combined in the same pedal is really quite convenient!

(Plus it has an option to daisy chain power out to other pedals - I only use an overdrive and a fuzz on stage, so it's more than adequate for these purposes.)

But can you adjust the output levels individually?

Not from the pedal, no. I tend to use the volume on the guitars for that!

I've gone for the Radial Bigshot  , off of ebay for £29 .   I like the fact it doesn't need a battery .
