a/b switcher such as EHX "Switchblade" or Whirlwind "Selector" costs can be anywhere from $40-$120

EDIT: To answer your second question, cheaper A/Bs do effect tone, though to what extent is arguable. More commonly, the channels will "bleed" into one another (the Morley ABY Channel Switcher is notorious for this). Higher end A/B boxes such as the Radial Tonebone BigShot bleed far less (if at all) and have no (or at least almost no) effect on tone.

A A/B box will work, and you would be able to keep your pedals that are in front of the amps. You would need to buy the pedals you want in the loops double though.

does doing this affect tone at all?


this question is so full of fail.

of course it changes the tone, thats why u do it. the only reason ud want to do it. unless u had 1 louder amp and one quiter amp, but then still, switching amps is a terrible way to increase volume, it will change the tone, alot. but thats why you use more than one amp.

He ment 'will putting a AB box in the signal chain suck tone yes or no'. Offcourse he knows that when he switches to another amp, his tone will change

Answer: yes it will cause hum and grounding interference when you buy a crappy cheap one. If you buy a well made one, it wont suck any tone, and you wont experience hum or any other disturbing noises.

pretty sure he meant affect the tone of each particular amp, not "does switching amps affect tone."

But yes the Radial Bigshot is a good one; it's what I personally will have (being shipped right now) and everybody I have consulted prior told me to get it over the Morley or Snarling dogs box. It also doesn't need a battery (it's passive) which is convenient.
