Running two pedal boards.

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by CodeYbassboy, Jul 10, 2005.

  1. I'm new at this sort of thing... I'm thinking of putting together a board with the pedals that I have that don't get any use with my main gig. I'm trying to think of a way to use both boards and then be able to switch between them.

    So far I've come up with this: use some sort of splitter to split the signal of my bass onto both boards. Then I'd run the the boards into an A/B box, which would then go to my amp.

    Is this correct, or is there a better way to do this that I'm missing out on?

    I may be completely missing the point, but... how about just connecting the boards? All you'd need is a short cable.

    A/B box sounds good to me.

    Why not just run them in series, one after the other. Why would you use an A/B which prevents you from using the pedals you always use along with a pedal you seldom use.

    if for some reason you do wish to have two separate loops, you could use a boss ls2 with no problems.
