    Huh! I've got their Switch Dr controller and Loop Expander. They make solid stuff, so far. Though, one LED indicator on the Switch Dr is starting to go funny...

    Radial bigshot ABY. Well priced priced and very reliable. Ran mine for two years with no issues.

    That's a great AB, but it sucks as a Y. Sucks, as in your tone. It literally splits your signal in two. For a Y that pushes a full signal to both A and B, you'll need something like their Twin-City

    Can't you just put a buffered pedal before the Bigshot?

    Certainly, but it's going to chop the buffered signal in two, still, as far as I know.

    They're very easy to make, but the thing to make sure is to get a buffered one. If it isn't buffered, you can induce nasty hum if the two paths end up having an impedance mismatch.

    Pretty sure Fender do a buffered A/B/Y for like £30 or something.
