Hi.

I currently have a Vox AC30C2 and a Fender Hotrod Deluxe which I play through both using an ABY switcher. Currently I am using a Diamond distortion pedal before the ABY box so that the distortion is coming out of both amps. However, if I bought another distortion pedal (e.g. Ibanez tubescreamer), I was wondering if it would be possible to send one distortion pedal to one amp and the other distortion pedal to the other amp using the ABY switcher, if so then how?

Thanks.

Tube Screamer is an overdrive, not a distortion, really. But yes, you can send one pedal to one amp and the other pedal to the other amp and still use both amps at the same time; just place the pedals after your ABY.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Ah yes, apologies for the mix up!

So would be something like


Tuner - Aby THEN A - tubescreamer to amp B - diamond to amp

Cant you just put the distortions after the ABY box?

Mr. Flibble answered TS' question 3 hours before you posted, yet you still said this after he gave a pretty clear solution that is the same as yours, why? I'm guessing you posted without reading the thread first.

@TS: yes, you can send two separate signals to two separate amps. all you'd have to do is hook them up the effects boxes after the ABY box.

you're pedantic

once again, you start your post off finding something to 'correct' someone on that is not even really pertinent to the original question.

Quote by Sam Ash
Distortion pedals include Fuzz and Overdrive. Both produce a warm and gritty sound. Fuzz produces a more distorted buzzy sound as in the Rolling Stones “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” while overdrive gives a warm tube-amp sound.

maybe you should stop trying to correct people all the time and give advice instead.
