I was just wondering if I could use an A/B Box to run my guitar into both the normal and tremolo inputs on my Epi Century amp at the same time? What I plan to do with this is run all of my OD, Distortion, and EQ pedals into the normal input and then send a dry signal to the tremolo input, effectively giving me a separate drive and clean channel (I don't plan on running them both at the same time, I think that would still work though right?). The tremolo input has it's own independent volume control so I don't see how this couldn't work, but I still thought I would ask to make sure.

Should work. That's actually the traditional way of changing tones on a Vox AC15/30--set the Top Boost channel for distortion and the Normal channel for cleans, switch between them with the A/B box.

That's the way you do it.

I mainly want to know if it has problems with the unselected channel bleeding thorugh


Looks to have good reviews and seems solidly built. According to one of the reviews I just read, those mini switches allowed this guy to completely block out the tone on the other channel. Plus if it doesn't do exactly what you want, MF has a great return policy.

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

do yourself a favour first,grab two leads,plug one in each input and check that you get signal through each.
Some amps (i.e:,my laney A.O.R,which has a hi and a lo input) will default to one input when both are being used.
