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.

  • Comments from customers who bought this item:

There's a number of reasons why you might need a switch like the Palmer AB-O. When you're on stage and you want to switch your vocals between FOH and the monitor mixing desk allowing you to communicate with the mixer or your band in private. Or perhaps you have two different sound set-ups. If you run both outputs of the ABO to two channels of the mixing desk you can switch between these two configured channels whilst on stage to switch effects. Or the switch can be used to alternate between addressing two different rooms or areas.

A sturdy, latching foot switch controls the selected output which is indicated by a red LED. Use the slide switches to select various attenuation levels (6, 15 or 21 dB) individually for both of the outputs. A ground lift helps to avoid ground loop hum. The passive circuitry of the ABO means it requires no power supply, a 9 volt block battery is required simply to power the LED.

The solid metal casing of the Palmer AB-O means you can trust it is built to last and the extended edging offers extra protection for the inputs and outputs. Pre-drilled holes allow simple and secure mounting in any rack or pedal board.
