    Hello all,

    Is there a pedal, or piece of outboard gear, that allows some one to send a mono signal into it from a bass or guitar, "split" said signal into two signals ala stereo, and then finally send these signals to two seperate amps? I think that I have seen something like this, or read about something like this. Anyone heard of anything like this? Please let me know if you have.

    Thanks,

    SullyB

    I believe your looking for something like an A/B/Y box...Morley makes one, and there are a few other brands too.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the input. I read a review of the Morley ABY pedal, Jonesy, and the user stated that you can't run the two amps simultaneously. I was hoping to do somehting along the lines of what Doug Pinnick does with his 12-strings. You know, high-end to a guitar amp, low-end to a bass head.

    Keep rockin' :bassist: ,

    Oh, you want to split high and low end.
    You're looking for this then :

    The reviewer must have had a bad one, because I used a morley all the time. I split into an eden WT330 and kept it clean, and then ran a trace SM7eq (to take some of the bass out) into a Marshall JCM600 head with a touch of chorus in the effects loop.

    I also run both channels of my A/B at the same time, you definately can run a mono signal into the A/B and out to 2 separate amps/line/etc.

    But as Jazz Ad said, if you're looking to separate the mono signal into high end and low end, just use a crossover.
     
  8. A DOD Bass30 also can biamp and it can be had for pretty cheap...there are a few on TB for sale...

    A stereo chorus can also be used to send the signal to two amps.
