By that, I mean switching to another persons amp, while they switch to yours. For example, the rhythm guitarist switching to the lead guitarists amp and vice versa. Can you use an A/B/Y switcher backwards? I have no experience with amp switching, so don't laugh

You could easily just unplug your guitar, move across the room, and plug in to his amp and vice versa... the only problem is if you have a shit ton of pedals you need for both amps.

But yeah me and the guitarist in my band do this all the time (we switch off on playing guitar and bass sometimes). You just gotta get good at it and be as quick as you can because no one wants to see you fumbling around with patchcords for a minute

An A/B switcher would not solve this, as you'd need to connect to cable to each amp. I'm sure you could buy something more elaborate (read expensive) so I'd recommend muting the amps and swapping cables!

Each of you can run into an ABY, and then have another ABY at each amp set to "both". You'll need high quality ones so it doesn't sound like shit. Either way, it's still a bad idea.

Why don't you just play each other's parts?

You could easily make a 'box' that can A/B switch two instruments between two amps at the press of a single switch.

EDIT: If you're wanting to switch heads between cabs, then you're heading into risky territoy. My suggestion is only relevant if you meant switching two guitar signals between two amp inputs.

if the amps have more than one channel you can with each of you having an A/B box. But you guys should really just stay on the same amp, thats what normal people do and you can live without the tone you think you need.
