  • I used to run 2 Combos just for giggles so that I could get a really wide Stereo Chorus going on. Both amps took Chorus (obviously) and Drives went into one and delays could either go into the other, or in the case of Ping Pong Delays, both were used. I didn't run anything through a mixer, but don't forget, I have very simple needs and an equally simple brain. ;D

  • I'm trying to remember how it was done George  :confused:

    I "think" I had the guitar running into a Boss Stereo Delay which then split the output to each amp any extra pedals were run from after the delay on each side.

    Long time ago now and I really can't remember any more detail than this I'm afraid. :(

  • Hi George. When I run amps in stereo, I usually use an A-B-Y box at the end of the pedal chain. That gives me the option of A 9left), B (right), or Y (both). If you're using a specific stereo pedal, as in a chorus, delay, etc., you can sent the split signals out to the amp from that pedal. You can put whichever pedals you'd like either before that pedal (pedals effect signal to both amps simultaneously), or mixed in after the signal is split (to color only one amp. Hope this is some help.
