Build your AB switch box 1 IN and 2 OUT
How to build an AB switch box with 1 input and two outputs (to be used for example to connect a guitar to two amplifiers and select which amplifier to use)? First of all let's see what components we need:
List of tools required for assembly (not included in the KIT):
Soldering iron and solder tin;
Drill and bits of a suitable size for drilling aluminum boxes;
Scissors and pliers;
9V power supply for effect pedals;
Tester (recommended for debugging but not strictly necessary).
If you are not familiar with the use of the welder, I recommend following some tutorials that can be easily found on youtube.
Assembly procedure: Drill the aluminum box according to the template below; Assemble the different components with the aluminum box as shown in the figure below (seen from the underside of the aluminum box). In particular: - 3PDT footswitch (A / B footswitch) - 1/4 "mono jack (IN) - 1/4 "mono jack (OUT A, B) - Power jack (9V - DC IN) of 2.1mm - LED door + LED A (red) - LED door + LED B (green)
Close the aluminum box using the cover and the 4 screws, connect the pedal to a 9V power supply and connect the input guitar (IN) and the amplifiers to the outputs (A and B).
