    Yeah, its a shame that it only runs on batteries, but it's still a great little pedal. I'm a touring musician, and I've used mine for about 200 shows. After 3.5 years it has just now developed a short in the output. It is small enough to fit in any pedal board configuration and durable enough to last for years. I've already sent in a replacement order.

    I bougtht this pedal to run a Taylor T5 between a Carvin acoustic amp and Traynor 50 watt tube amp. It seemed to work ok at first, but changing batteries if you forget to disconnect the input is a pain. Far worse, it now seems to generate a horrible buzz or whine that is simply unacceptable. I always thought Boss was bulletproof, but this thing didn't cut it.

      This switcher works like a charm. Not noisy and silent switching. The con is the battery will die if you leave it hooked up on your board. It must be unplugged after performing.

        Perfect for me.

        I perform with a Warwick Thumb and an NS Design EUB. All of my volume and tone control compensation is accomplished via a Fishman pre on the EUB. I did not want bells and whistles. I wanted silent switching between the instruments. I like simple. This is it. No wall wart. No extra power cord. One well made little box with a good switch on top. The little led's are fine although it is pretty ease for me to tell which instrument is live without them. I can pivot the Warwick on my back and dive into the EUB mid song and not miss a heart beat. I have finaly become accustomed to batteries. The instrument, the Fishman, the switch. I just stay on top of changing them all about once a month and no more power cords pulled out the strips from kicking wires on stage. This one works for me.

        It's a simple A/B switch. I use it to switch between guitars. It does it's job fine. No noise added nor any tones filtered out.

              Comments about Boss AB-2 2-Way Selector Pedal:

              I bought this unit to be able to switch quickly between electric and acoustic guitars, so it performs this function well. Unfortunately , it runs on 2- 1.5 volt AA cells, so you must have an extra set of batteries available as well as a Phillips screwdriver to change them. It would be better if it could be powered by 9V A.C adapter. I don't detect much noise/hum generated by it. but I've mostly used it in low-gain settings.

              Comments about Boss AB-2 2-Way Selector Pedal:

              I have used this pedal to swtich between amps and instruments and, it functions beautifully. Although I mainly use it for starting and stopping my drum machine, it works perfectly for this function in a live performance. I'm not too concerned about it being battery powered because I really don't like the wall wart transformers anyway. I own an LR Baggs para acoustic DI that is battery powered only and, I wouldn't have it any other way. Very well made and functions just for what I need, no noise, not very expensive, Highly recommended.

              Just what I needed to switch between two guitars without unplugging.
              Works great - love the LED indicators.

              Comments about Boss AB-2 2-Way Selector Pedal:

              I use mine to switch between two basses, normally fretted to fretless. It works great for this. batteries are a bummer, and hard to change, nothing else on stage uses AAAs. Still a great unit, though a little pricey for me. I bought mine used.
