I posted this in the gear forum so I'm reposting it here based on the replies I received:

I need a custom channel switcher/ABY pedal constructed. Basically I want to be able to have either amp on 1 at a time or both on at the same time (ABY scenario.) I would also like the option of switching channels on each individual amp, or hitting one button that switches channels on both amps at the same time. I could take apart my pedals and make a new case for most of it, but I still need to come up with a way to switch both amps at the same time.

Does anyone know of any person or company that could possibly put together a project like this? Or could someone give me some ideas on how to go about this.

The thing to keep in mind is that one amp is a crate BVH120 and the other is a Carvin X100B with a footswitch with a female XLR connector.

Thanks! Any info or advice is appreciated.

i would recommend simply buying an ABY pedal and then using a separate footswitch for each amp. it would save you the hassle of getting a custom made footswitch which will cost you $200+.

this one looks good

exactly what kind of footswitches does each amp take? if you give that to us, we could probably draw up a schematic for you.

The Carvin X100B takes the Carvin FS36 channel switch. Here is a schematic I found for that:

and a picture of it (top left)

For my Crate amp I did not have the original footswitch because I got it used. I have been using a peavey FS that I had laying around with an effects loop/channel switch on it.

I have a Morley ABY.

Thanks!
