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.

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

    When you push the pedal to change it doesn't hesitate like others. It's a good compact size and goes weigh a ton. It is very simple unlike other pedals.

    Used it for the first time at a gig last weekend and it did exactly what I wanted it to: eliminate the need to unplug when changing guitars.No issue with battery life as another reviewer wrote.

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

      I purchased this as an A/B switch for switching between two guitars in a live situation. It works very well for this application. The packaging was decent, and the pedal seems to be of solid construction. The only thing I would knock it for is the lack of an external power supply jack. This can only be used with a battery. Having said that, it works well, and for the price, I can't complain.

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

      I switch back and forth between my Godin A6 and Godiin A12 I play in our church worship band. This pedal lets me have access to all of my effects and one amp with both guitars without having to turn off my amp to switch guitars/patch cords.

      The switch button on the the pedal is large and easy to access. It makes no noise, not even a click that I can notice, and the different colored L.E.D.s tell me at a glance which instrument is active.

        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.

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

          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.

          Works better than I expected. Used in a gospel group to change from 6 to 12 string. Would gladly recommend.
