This upgrade on Lehle’s Little Dual is a passive ABY switcher intended to make choosing between two connected guitar amps easy and instant, with a high-end transformer isolating A and B outputs to get rid of unnecessary noise.
The Little Dual II leverages two soft-switches for selecting between two outputs or running both. Per Lehle, the soft-switches are quieter, faster, and more durable compared to mechanical alternatives.
Truly, as Lehle put into words, the Little Dual II is “virtually indestructible.”
The new unit features two modes, enabling guitarists to deactivate or activate outputs separately or to change between amplifiers and activate the remaining one. The user may also route it in stereo to both outputs.
The Little Dual II can also double as a DI box if the user is employing a stereo (TRS) cable and get the unbalanced or balanced mono signal from output A.
Other notable features include a TRS switch, active pop suppression circuit, as well as high-intensity LEDs for easy viewing even if a spotlight is trained on the floor or the sun is streaming through the window.
The Little Dual II retails for $349.
