Fender Micro ABY review

Two amps: ABY not?

  • £70
  • €87
  • $79
Some mini-pedals cram too many controls in, but the Micro ABY is simplicity itself

MusicRadar Verdict

We experienced no noise problems, and with street prices at half the SRP, this is an amp switch-enabling bargain.

Pros

  • +

    Great price. Compact. No noise problems.

Cons

  • -

    Nothing.

With an arsenal of four new utility stompers, Fender is the latest company to join the mini-pedal mêlée, and its Micro ABY does the job while taking up minimal 'board space.

"The A/B setting switches between two amps, using the true bypass footswitch"

The A/B setting switches between two amps, using the true bypass footswitch, while the Y (A&B) setting allows you to run two amps at once - or two parallel effects chains into one amp.

However you use it, we experienced no noise problems, and with street prices at half the SRP,
this is an amp switch-enabling bargain.
