Radial BigShot i/oRegular price $150.00
True-bypass Instrument Selector
The BigShot i/o is an easy-to-use instrument selector that lets you quickly transition between any two instruments, while balancing the levels between them and feeding the output to your amplifier.
Easy instrument changeovers on stage
The BigShot i/o allows you to switch between instruments on stage without pops through your amp or the need to adjust levels, while featuring 100% true-bypass for the most demanding purist. Input-2 is equipped with a volume control that lets you reduce the input sensitivity of the louder instrument so that the levels are matched when played through your amplifier. When passive instruments are used, a unique three-position Bright switch lets you compensate for instruments that lack shine in the high frequencies. The BigShot i/o is also equipped with a separate tuner output; with a simple foot stomp, the sound going to the amp is muted and diverted to the tuner for quiet on-stage adjustments.
BigShot i/o Applications
Using the i/o with two electric guitars
Switching between a Strat® and a Les Paul® is easy! Plug the two guitars into the i/o and hit the toggle switch to select. Tame down the Les Paul using the input-B level control. Connect your tuner for quiet onstage tuning using the mute footswitch.
Using the i/o with passive and active bass
Output levels vary dramatically between an active bass and a passive one making it difficult to switch without adjusting the amp level. Solve the problem by connecting your passive bass to input-1 and your high output active bass to input-2. Use the level control to match.
Switching between acoustic and electric guitars
Multi-instrumentalists are often forced to switch between electric and acoustic guitars or between other instruments. The BigShot i/o makes it easy! Use input-1 for the electric and lower the sensitivity on input-2 for your acoustic to balance the signals.
