    I'm after an A/B switch pedal, and it must be uncoloured. The extra versatility of the Bigshot is appealing, but will colour my sound ?.

    I once had one of these and can attest that it didn't color my sound at all. It is a bit limited in what it can do, you can only turn one channel down or boost it very slightly, but it works well for matching the outputs of two different basses. Its totally passive and true bypass, so theres no power in it at all. It's basically just a true bypass signal router with a volume pot for one of the channels. Theres nothing in there that could possibly alter your sound.

    The radial bassbone on the other hand, which is twice as much ( and then some ), has a DI, effects loop/boost, and EQ. It also has buffered bypass's must run on its own adapter.
