I'm planning to use 2 Vox AC15s
Is there a way to do the reverb/trem switch with
one pedal for both amps?
Otherwise I gotta stomp twice.

It'll be lord of the dance with guitar.

Umm... Not unless you're good with a soldering iron & a pair of plyers, as basically you're needing a foot switch with 2 input leads. Only way you're gonna do that is with a lot of electrical jiggery-pokery. And maybe some swearing.

If it's that easy, all I'd need would be a 'Y' cable.
I'm afraid the signal will need boosting after the
split. If not it would be cool.

There's always the low-tech route. You could easily tape a 2x4 (or something like that) to the separate footswitches and have one tap on that switch both of them.

Or just learn to switch with both feet.

Let's see. switching with both feet would involve levitating.
Sorry, I'm just not light in the loafers.


Does anybody have a serious suggestion?

The Y connector will work. I made one & also have a store-bought one. You can make it yourself for less than $10.00 US. Just get 3 female jacks & wire them together. Anyone w/ the slightest electronic knowledge could show you how the wires go. Ideally, you should solder it together, but a guitar signal is very small, so you could just use crimp connectors if you don't want to solder. You don't even need a box for your splitter. I used to just leave mine laying on the carpet with the cables attached.
Just bare wires & jacks (just keep the jacks separated-not touching each other).

Of course this isn't a guitar signal (foot switch) and it would be a stereo split. Open wires would be kinda scary at a gig. I'll pony up for a stereo splitter and see what happens.

switching with both feet really isn't that hard, all you have to do is balance on your heels for a couple of seconds.

No offense but does nobody give a straight answer
on this board because of inclination or because
they're clueless?

all answers are serious, it really is not hard to switch on multiple pedals at once. you could even line them up in a way so that you can get both with one foot. or a piece of wood/plastic/metal connecting the switches would work. dont dismiss an idea as a joke just because it is unconventional.

i have a couple other ideas for you if you are so set against using two feet like a normal person would. the first is to figure out the system used for the footswitch, which will probably involve some sort of relays. then figure out how the actual pedals are wired, and wire your own so it switches both. unfortunatly if you dont understand the concept of how the relays work, this will be nigh on impossible.

the other thing to do would be to take both pedals out of their casings. then put them together in one new casing. you could have the switches right next to one another so that you could hit both at once. simple, yet effective.

If serious, both of your suggestions are hilarious. ROTFLMAO
Especially the stick thing. Oh gawd. and the relays Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
I talked to Vox and indeed a TRS phone plug splitter will suffice to control both amps.
Thanks for all the help and friendship
bye

^ Actually, I would have used either of his suggestions if I was in your situation. They're both good ideas- I have some decent wiring skills which I could use, and the stick thing is perfect.

I mean this for your benefit.
You'd be laughed off of any and every stage on Mother Earth
if you glued a stick to two pedals. You'd get tomatoes at the
cheesiest begginners open mic. Of course you'd also get ridicule
with an Epi tube jr but that's another story.
