i have a marshall mg100 halfstack
and the distortion sound on it is compromised. but i like the way the clean channel sounds,

and i have a fender amp which has a great sounding crunchy distortion, but the clean channel cracks at volumers over 3.

is it possible to put the clean channel from the marshall into my fender amp?

No offence, but you have two horrible amps there - sell them both and buy one good one.

As for putting the parts from one amp inside the other be really difficult to do if not impossible due to the way they are designed. The channel switching pedal will work for a little while. But neither amp is known for being reliable so your best bet is bite the bullet and find a single more reliable amp.

It would be cool to combine them in one cab. If you could isolate the preamp sections and just use the power amp from one of them... you could do it.

I don't know much about the amps in question, but some have a preamp output or effects loop. That output could be run into the power amp of the other.

I could see some ground loop issues unless they were both powered from the same supply... I guess.

Anything can be done. It's a matter of how much you can handle or how much its worth your time.

TS asks how to combine amp channels and everyone tells him how much his amps suck and to sell them and buy a new one. Never ends, does it?

Yes, because that's what's best for him - we're giving him the right answer, he just asked the wrong question.

or for about $20 buck you can build your own.
I built one except its essentially an A/b-A/b pedal where i can choose between 2 guitars and 2 amps

Bandwagon my arse.

the TS has two unreliable amps and isn't completely happy with either of them, not to mention a guitar that's not best suited to solid state amps and ultimately he wants to sound better. You could run the two together but there's no point pussyfooting around an issue if the root cause of a problem is sat there staring you in the face.

If he prefers even the Fender FM's distortion to the MG I imagine he'll be absolutely ecstatic with the sound he got out of a decent amp.

pawn em both and buy a crate V50 from musician's friend right now.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

Just build your own a/b/y, it's just about the simplest pedal one can make.

So we had a music battle, copying what each other did and upping the ante and whatnot. After awhile of going nowhere, I said to the pianist "let's see you do this, asshole" played a single note... and bent it up a step. And left.

just build an a/b box, i saw a schematic someone on here, its really simple, like no resistors at all, if i remember correctly.


that should work
its pretty simple, i might just build one with parts i have laying around.

EDIT: and for materials, it will be like maybe 7 bucks. just use an altoids tin with electrical tape inside for the casing, i'ved done it that way, and it seems to work.

I +1 to this. Buy three jacks, a DPDT switch, and some wire, and pop it all in an altoids case. Pretty much the easiest pedal ever.
