    Ok guys...I'm in the process of re-routing and re-constructing my pedal board, and i find myself in need of a simple signal splitter..

    basically i need one input and two outputs...and really would like to have an output on each side of pedal....or both out the top and a tuner out would be nice as well...

    don't need a loop function and i have two loop pedals at the moment...

    what's my best best?

    Loop Master?
    American Loopers?
    DIY?
    Diamond Kill Switch Plus? (Leaning towards this one at the moment)
    Lehle?
    Morley?
    Radial?

    I have two Radials. Built like tanks. One true bypass, the other buffered with led. Both work great.

    the lehle is uber expensive considering its a utility pedal..

    I have a couple radial pedals already

    I don't really need any switches just basically a box that will allow the signal to pass through and split in two directions for the sake of easy routing..... i have loopers to handle that stuff on the other end

    Yep, its one of the best - I love mine.

    And?

    A Y cable will do that.

    I'm aware a Y cable will do that...but Y cables don't have buffers.... was hoping for a nice tidy box with a parallel out for my tuner as well

    The Radial ABY box has a buffer... But it has a switch as well so if you can live with a redundant switch? Maybe there is something better out there.

    There's the [sfx] Split, small and perfect, but not cheap.

    No one's mentioned the venerable Boss LS-2 yet, so I will.

    You should be able to use this in A+B mix mode, using Send A and Send B as your two outputs. I think (but don't quote me on this), if you plug your tuner into the regular output when the LS-2 is bypassed you should be able to silently tune.

    Also, the Boss is carried by almost every music store, so you shouldn't have trouble finding one, or returning it if it's not for you.

    Just ordered one of these...i had a gift card so it only ended up costing me $10.00 of my own money

    Features:

    Buffer for pedal board

    1 in – 2 out parallel splitter

    Kill your rig at the end of your pedal board for immediate silencing

    Always on tuner out

    Allows for silent tuning

    DCin or 9v

    will report when it gets here!!

    I found my Lehle on ebay for 1/2 of what they are new. Love it!
