Hey guys,

Im planning on getting a new amp in the very new future, hopefully this weekend, and its going to be more of a high gain amp, so I want to A/B it with my Vox. Ive seen quite a few online and stuff, but I want one that won't suck my tone and all. I don't really want to spend more than $100 bucks, but that shouldn't really be an issue as I haven't really seen all that many above that price.

So what are some reccomendations? I saw the T-Rex Ployswitch, and there were a few others like the Bigshot, the Morleys, a Live Wire, and a Whirlwind. Have any of you tried any of these out? Im leaning towards the T-Rex as I know those are quality pedals. I don't need the A/B/Y feature, but it would be a nice feature.

What do you think?

And just to clarify, the AB switches let me use one guitar with two amps, and by pushing the button it switches from each amp? Correct?

Thanks!

I picked up a used Radial A/B/Y for 35$ (CDN). It's nothing special but it does the job.

Correct, but each amp needs a separate speaker load. (i.e. it's not a head switcher)

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

Is it noisy or buzzy or anything?

Right, it would be a combo AC15 into a Combo Jet City. That would work?

I've only used it twice but I didn't notice extra noise or anything. I really don't need one I just grabbed it because it was 35$

Bingo.

Shouldn't be noisy since it's just a simple signal router - no different from your pickup selector, really - but because it's a simple stomp switch you might hear a click when you change between amps.

Cool thanks. And how would I use effect pedals with one of these? Because the amp outputs are going straight into this pedal, and not into the other effects into a chain?

Guitar - AB box
A - pedal chain A - Amp A
B - pedal chain B - Amp B

You can't use the same pedal in both chains without a lot of messing around with cables, if that's what you're asking.

Alright thanks.

Still, for whoever may own one, recommendations would be superb.

^ the Whirlwind A/B Box. It's pricey, but awesome.

Hopefully, your amps outputs are going into speakers..................
Put the A/B selector at the very end of your pedal chain so that your pedals can be used for both amps, or in the begining of your pedal chain if you only want effects for one amp. (or anywhere in between)
