In-depth Description

KMA’s ABY pedal features a fully passive design for the best signal integrity, along with our True Bypass active silent relay-based soft switching.

While that might be a hell of a wordy mouthful, what it means practically is that the audio signal itself is entirely untouched and without any colouration.

Plus, you can use the device in either direction, for sending to different sets of amps or effects or for switching inputs/ instruments/devices into your chain. However, the actual switching is taken care of by our reliable and sturdy soft switches as a separate active circuit.

By employing this switching technology, mechanical noise is greatly reduced, as is the risk of those pesky loud clicks and pops that have plagued so many boards and has haunted so many musicians, since the inception of ABY boxes.

The bears eyes light up – how awesome is that!? Okay, besides just looking cool and fulfilling our boyhood dreams of an army of robot bears with freaking lasers as eyes, the 3 distinct LEDs actually serve a practical purpose; to quickly and easily show you what signal path you’ve selected at a glance.

Red for A, Yellow for B and Blue in the centre for A&B.

This pedalboard-friendly device seamlessly integrates with your existing setup. It’s compact, rugged, lightweight, durable, affordable and can be powered via a standard 9V DC power supply, making it convenient for all walks of sonic life. What’s not to like?

So, will you choose A or B?

With the KMA Machines ABY pedal, the fate of your signal is in your hands!
