Do you want them all to work at once, or do you want to switch between them?

Most of the time, when you see stacks and stacks of amps onstage, they are merely props, and not all hooked up.

With an A/B/Y you can go to two amps. With Marshalls(and others), it isn't uncommon to rewire one as a slave, then use the line out from the master so that you use it to shape the sound and the other for extra power.

Why? Do you need that much volume, or is it simply, as you stated, that it looks cool?

You need an A/B/Y pedal to do it with two... To do it with more you'll need a more complex (expensive) set up.

So why do you need them all to work? Just get broken/non-working amps cheap and stack 'em up behind you. Much cheaper.

would it work with connecting them by like imou/outout/input if that makes sence ?

The outputs normally bypass the speaker in a combo I believe, and in a head obviously there's no speaker, so all you're doing is putting a very high-level signal into amp after amp. I'm not sure you can do that without doing some damage.

Not to mention you're not gaining anything, as you're bypassing the speaker. I don't see where you're going with this.

If an amp has 2 inputs, in many cases, you can go into one, and out the other into another amp, similar to jumpering a 2 channel amp.

An even cheaper option (other than stacking cheap amps) is to buy broken amps. You could probably get a large cab that doesn't work for around $30....maybe more?

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

As said, an ABY pedal is what you need.

Don't go fooling around with connecting amps together though. You can seriously damage them if you connect them incorrectly.

I just use any pedal with two outputs, like a boss chorus or some thing. Then you got stereo sound. It's pretty fun to mess around with. Then if you have another 'two output' pedal kickin around you can connect that and have 3 amps going, and so on.
