    Default AB switch ??

    Iíve been playing in my church band for several months and itís going great. The acoustic guitar guy uses an AB switch box as kind of an ďon/offĒ for when he wants to mute his guitar to re-tune, put on & take his capo, unplug without the noise, etc. On occasion he will have a second guitar, but mainly itís to mute. I would like the have this option. Is the AB switch the simplest choice or is there something else that functions the same or might be more useful. Neither he nor I use a DI box at church. We donít need it with the way the church sound system is set up. My uke has a MiSi pickup.

    Are you handy looks like a simple build.



    My Digitech RP360 auto mutes the signal when using the built in tuner, Ive never looked at a dedicated tuner pedal. Perhaps this is an option?

    An inexpensive tuner pedal will do the same thing. When you click it on to tune it mutes the output signal. I have a Donner tuner pedal. I think it cost $20.

    You can get cables with kill switches. Might be easier at this point. One less thing to think about.
