      Comments about MXR A/B M196 Box:

      I was looking for a pedal to switch between a clean and dirty amp. This pedal will do that, but you have to be able to tap dance. This pedal will NOT switch between A and B with one click. What it does it route the signal to A or B as the switch is pressed. So to truly 'switch' from A to B, you have to turn on B, and then turn off A, and vice versa. You'll have spillover, which can be a cool effect, but almost defeats the purpose. MXR quality though. Cool blue LED indicators. True bypass with no tone loss. I'm keeping it since I don't want to pay to ship it back. I'll find a use for it.

        Comments about MXR A/B M196 Box:

        I am presently using a Traveler Ultra Light (choice of a dozen guitars) and play through a Carvin BX Microbass amp and Carvin PM10A powered monitor using different effects pedals for each. Nice stereo effect as I can choose either amp or use both. I get great acoustic sound through PM10A and great electric sound through BX. Everything fits in back of my Mini Cooper!
