    +1. Also, if you're using two stage amps, whether you want to tweak both preamps or whether driving both amps using just one preamp is ok.

    I used a voodoo labs amp selected pedal to run my bass through two amps before with great success. Wasn't cheap but worked great!
  6. +2 Unless you tell us precisely what you are trying to do none of us can offer you worthwhile advice.
  7. Bi-Amp.

    C'mon, paint the picture. What amps, what speakers? What are you trying to accomplish?

    We need some more detail.

    Its not really 'biamping' unless there's a crossover that's splitting the frequency ranges across a couple amps to different cabs.

    Speaking of cabs, the OP doesn't say if he's trying to run 2 amps into one cab or two separate cabs. If the answer was a single cab, than that's a NO-GO. If its multiple cabs than there are a variety of ways to do this.

    I do this as my standard rig. Would never use a single head on stage.
    1. A BOSS CE3 has 2 outputs - 1 into each amp
    2. A spliter plug (bought a few of them for $1.50 ea on Ebay) from my tuner into 2 amps
    3. Some Tuners I haev heard have 2 outputs
    4. some other pedals have 2 outputs
    5 Splitter (Y cable) as stated above.
