The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The Palmer ABI Balanced Line Input Switch toggles silently between two sources and can ever take care of the level adjustment for various sources.

The ABI allows a fast and simple comparison between signals, or connect sources such as a mic or line single into one input.

Using strictly passive circuitry, the ABI input switch requires no power supply at all. A 9-volt block battery is only required to power the LED which indicates which input is active.

Alter the attenuation for both inputs seperately by using the three slide switches, and use the ground lift to avoid ground loop hum.

Easily rack-mountable, or slotted onto your pedalboard, the Palmer ABI protects the inputs and outputs with the extended edges of its rugged metal casing.
