Yo I have 2 amps, a Roland Cube 20x and a Marshall Valvestate vs15 (Made in England),
and I have 2 electric guitars, a Schecter C-1 Classic and an Esteban Midnight Legacy and I have plenty of different types of connectors. What I want to do is be able to hook up my Schecter to my Roland and Marshall. I'm not gonna do it the Schecter first but I want to know if its safe. My idea is putting an 1/4" Splitter into the guitar and have 2 cables running from the splitter to the amps. Will this work without damaging either the Guitar or the amp. And if this isn't something that will work could anyone suggest something that would work?

a/b box...

an a/b box doesn't play both at the same time, which is what i think he wants

You want to have both playing at the same time or one at a time? If you want one at a time use an ABY box.

...he never said he wanted to use both at the same time

no but he implied it by mentioning the splitter directly from his guitar, not an amp switcher

a cable splitter would work, but wont be all that great. an aby box will do it better. you could also get a stereo pedal and use both outs. i can do that with my ad-9 and its just both amps running when the pedal is off. then one is regular and the other delayed with the pedal on. same idea goes for other stereo pedals.

I'd get an ABY Box. That way you have the option to run 2 amps at one time if you wanted.

So I do want both amps running at the same time sorry I didn't mention it. And will the ABY box allow that?

if you already have the splitter cable it is safe to use...

Yo listen I took a totally different approach. Instead of splitting the guitar and using two instrument cables, I split the cable and used a coupler to extend the length of one the cords so it runs to my amp. Thanks for your help everyone. I have no static or anything. Now with this kind of setup, If i keep splitting cables I could get surround sound in my room and my van lol. Oh quick note about splitters for people who don't know; the more splitters you use the quieter the sound is, it doesn't really get distorted as much as people think it would.
