    I am prepping for gigs come May/June. Looking for two input and one output pedal/controller.

    Here's how I'm going to use it or why I need it.

    I will be using two different basses on stage --- yamaha bb1200S and Squier Bass VI.

    So want to be able to plug both into the rig; but be able to switch from A to B. Additionally, I know from practice that the I usually need to turn up the amp for the Squier when I practice, so the controller will need to be able to have output settings for each.

    I'm sure this device exists, but i don't know what to search for.

    Please advise.

    Thanks!

    A/B or ABY.

    Unless you want a dual-input buffer, mixer, or line selector.

    Thanks L6M. Do A/B's or ABY's have output level controls? Or, would I need a mini mixer for that? Cheers!

    I use a Radial bigshot i/o for switching instruments during a gig. It is passive and it has an attenuator for one of the channels to match levels. It's not as flexible as a two channel preamp, but it gets it done and is built like a tank.

    You could do this with a Boss LS-2.

    Boss LS-2 (buffered), EHX Switchblade or Switchblade+ (A/BY and A+BY: true bypass (no batteries/electricity needed :D)) and there are some more.

    Thanks Ridger, Childis and Salamenster for all chiming in. Great suggestions. Just went thru my box of gadgets and realized I have a small mixer; Behringer 502 USB. I think it's a bit overkill for what I'm trying to do, but it might work.

    Cheers!
