basically i got a generic ABY switch for 20 bucks trying to be a cheapo. my problem is when trying to use one of my distortion pedals the sound wont come though on the switch when in dual mode. basically using it as a combiner to try and get dual amp sound. also when using another pedal i have to crank the level way up on it for it to be heard. is this normal or what?
it splits the signal between the two paths, so yes it will be half as loud when they are both on.
what does your pedal chain look like?
