I recently picked up a new Maz 38 and have been loving it. I wanted to use an A/B box to switch between the hi and low inputs so I grabbed a JHS Pedals Mini A/B hoping it would do the trick. But for some reason it's staying on the low input and won't switch to the hi...any ideas?
Welcome to the forum LP! When I had my MAZ 38 (my 1st Z amp) I used an old on/off mute pedal and it worked great. It may just be the way the pedal is wired or designed that is not allowing it to function as a channel switcher. I believe that any of Doc's Hi/Lo input designed amps allow you to toggle between the two. I would try a different pedal if you have one available. It is a nice option to have by using the Hi input as a boost.

Great amps, nice guitars, and a small tonal spice rack.
I think an A/B switcher is not the good way to do what you want, cause when both inputs are used in the same time the resistance of the Low input comes into the Hi circuit (not sure to be clear ). So the simple switch into the Low input is what you need, cause it's like having something plugged in when switch is on (and then you guitar plugged into the Hi input sees the resistance) and nothing when the switch is off (and then the Hi input works normally).
Ah bummer. I was hoping the pedal I got would do the trick. Well if there's a specific brand pedal that someone could recommend that would work I'd appreciate it.
Any basic on-off latching foot switch will work, but make sure the cable is shielded. Otherwise you can pick up noise.
I've used both an old Peavey and a Boss successfully.
Fyi, some of the Dr Z foot switches, used for eq bypass and channel switching, evidently are not shielded. I haven't tried using mine for hi-lo switching so I can't say for sure if they're going to cause noise.
Gear piled high. Talent? Must be hidden in there somewhere.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
