So both off the same power, and each wired to opposite poles of a 3 position switch? In the middle, both work, and then up down selects either buffer or blaster?
Something like that. You'd probably want to use a multipole switch so that you can switch the input and output to each. I'd also investigate pulldown resistors so as to avoid pops when you switch modes.
However, I also don't see why you would bother doing this. The Blaster doesn't really have enough of a tone itself to warrant having a transparent preamp like a buffer as an alternative. I didn't want to have an unbuffered signal at any time, so it made sense to just wire up the blaster as a boost that can be kicked in when necessary on top of the buffer. I can't think of a reason why this isn't the ideal setup.
Also, if you are getting an official Alembic blaster, the switch is already part of the unit, so you just need to figure out the switching for the buffer.
