The Radial Engineering Bigshot I/O True Bypass Instrument Selector is a passive true-bypass signal switcher that allows you to switch back and forth between two instruments, match their respective volumes, and mute your entire rig as well.

Compact, tough, and versatile, the Bigshot I/O takes the awkwardness out of playing live with two instruments and makes you look smooth and professional as you switch off with just a step on one pedal.

This true-bypass design delivers straight wire performance between the input and the output thus resulting in near-perfect signal transfer. A variable level control can be used to reduce the input sensitivity on input-2 to compensate for overly loud instruments.

Built like a tank from 14-gauge steel with heavy-duty footswitches, the Bigshot I/O features a separate output for your tuner, removing it from your signal path while giving instant access, even while the Bigshot is muted. Differences in signal between two instruments can be equalized with the Dim switch.
