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:

        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.

            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.

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

                  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.
