Can anyone help me fix this problem involving a loop pedal and an A/B box?

  1. Hello,

    I have an issue involving a loop pedal and an A/B Box.

    My setup includes two amps, Amp A runs effect free minus a loop pedal, and Amp B has all my pedals (delay, distortion, fuzz, etc...).

    My problem is when I use the loop pedal (Boss Loop Pedal) to loop something through Amp B and then turn the distortion or fuzz on Amp A to solo or whatnot the loop starts playing through the distortion Amp A distorted, aswell as Amp B clean. I just want it to run on Amp B clean. I assume that when I use the loop pedal and run Amp A clean it still runs through but the volume just isn't loud enough to notice so when I turn on the distortion it becomes loud enough to hear.

    Does anyone know how to fix this so when I use the looper pedal it'll stay only on Amp B and not leak over to Amp A?


    P.S. Sorry if it's confusing. If you need any clarifying please just ask.

    uhm.. If I understand correctly, this should fix the issue:


    A-->Effects-->Dirty Amp

    B-->Loopstation-->Clean Amp

    If that is your current set-up, then it is quite likely that your A/B pedal is having issues of some kind or another.

    what kind of A/B Pedal is it?
