    what sounds best. this is a verry vuege question, on most older amps if it has two guitar inputs side by side you can simply daisy chain. i would sujest if buying ams buyin two difrant typs as almost every where has a house pa that can mic your cabs.

    The Morley 3 way George Lynch splitter works great ($99 I believe)

    depending on the amp all you should have to buy is another cable.

    i finally narrowed my search down to the MORLEY ABY BOX and the LEHLE DUAL SWITCH.

    the lehle is more than twice the price (175€ = ~220$) and i wonder if it pays to buy the lehle.

    any experiences/recommendations on these pedals?
    i only know the lehle has galvanic isolations but i dont know if the morley has.

    the ABY box adds noise, go with the George Lynch 3 way, it's cheaper than the Lehle.

    this...

    is what I've used, and I'd fully endorse it. it's a neat little unit.

    thx for your opinions.

    1. heard bad things about the morley switchers
    2. there's no distribution for the tonebone in austria
    3. went for the most expensive pedal - the lehle.
    bought it new, got it broken :cool:

    only one channel is working properly.
    so i finally got a one channel switcher for more than 200$
    how cool is that?

    Give the Litlle labs STD box a try. I own one and it does not effect the signal.

    About 125.00 bucks - highly recommneded..

    there is no need to spend any money on this (at least not that kind) a simple Y conector will do the job.

    seems like you never tried what you're talking about...

    went back to the dealer to get a new one.
    exactly what i've been looking for :cool:

    this topic never said exactly what it was talking about.

    and yes every thing ive said i have done, using two amps at the same time with one guitar. using a Y sound just fine unless there is some other problem. using two amps and linking them togather through the second input, or "by-amping" i have done this with great results. if this is not what you where asking then say what you are asking.

    my intention was to record a guitar from both a an engl powerball stack and a dual rectifier stack and have theim mixed together to one channel in the mix - without hum, without loss of signal and without having one amp affecting the other.
     
  17. Okay, if you have an outboard mixer, you can simply mix to a subgroup or pan to a single side (L or R, doesn't matter) and track that into your DAW (I'm assuming you're using a DAW). If you don't have an outboard mixer, then you can record them to separate tracks and then bounce them together.

    oh... i think you missed the essence of this issue :D

    it was more about splitting one guitar's signal to two seperate amps and play/record them simultanously than about just bouncing two tracks.
    besides lucky me found the right piece of equipment in the meantime.

    but muchos gracias to all you guys for your opinios. :cool:

    If the two amps are causing hum when on the end of a Y cord
    and/or
    you have a strat or bug style acousitc then you will need an active or transformer based unit ... or both

    see Jensen site for an application note
    High imp DI like Countryman or JLMs new DIY DI

    I can give links if you need them
