series actually goes

a/b/y box
Line A goes to Bass di and then to PA or acoustic amp
Line b to Volume Pedal, Tuner, SIB Varidrive, Sparkle Drive, Blues Driver, Tube Screamer, Enhancer, Chorus.....Then If I am not being too lazy....Another A/B/Y box to split the electric signal to a 73 super reverb and a Peavey Classic 50. I mainly only do this on large stages, and more stage volume/monitor...I hate having my guitar through the vocal monitors....

I play a Taylor t-5 through this normally, and also have an AMerican tele, and a 60's re-issue strat...ALthough I am probably gonna sell the fenders and buy a gretsch...

How's the Morley ABY box? I've heard bad things about grounding problems with a few switching stompers, I eventually wanna buy one for my 2 amp-totin' noise duo. Or make one Wink

I posted a schematic in St. Jimmy's thread for making your own.

Wicked, is it reasonably simple and won't cause grounding issues if I'm using both amps?

Relatively - it is a circuit board job (use perf or veroboard) and you will need to plan it out first.

I just realised that it was a splitter I posted for St. Jimmy. Anyway I can figure one out for yo uif you're serious about building one. The build will still cost around ?30 though.

The Morley sucks. It is cheap, and works in a pinch, but noisy and eats batteries (not powerable... and it is on whenever a input is plugged in.

I am gonna get a higher quality one.

BEsides the fact I just had to have it worked on, awesome. In it's defense, it has been well used though.... It makes my super reverb sound like a monster. As thick as you can make a 4x10 open back sound.... It is tube powered, and has a great tube overdrive to it that if dialed in right, sounds awesome. The negatives:

Size, it is huge.
it is powered by a huge f'n chord like you use on the back of a computer
the knobs are notched, and sometimes the exact volume you want might be right between 2 notches. (I can fix this with guitar or amp volume though obviously.

don't you guys love it when manufacturers pull that kind of shit? like what were they thinking? "nobody's going to need level in between here and there. our increments will save so much noodling time." fuck your faces, guys, and give us a standard pot.

I agree. It only really bugs me in places where I am already playing the amp lower than I like to (because then I don't want to use it to adjust) I almost never use the volume of the guitar as I keep them at 12 of course..... Other than that, the actual tone out of it is awesome for a haeavy overdrive while still being nice and warm.... (unlike some heavy distortion pedals that are harsh)

"distortion" pedals are so 1993.

I agree....Hence the overdrive pedals on my board..... I tried a big muff, a rat, and a couple other mainly DISTORTION pedals, and they just took a great tone and made it louder and thinner with alot of noise..... The thick overdrive sounds much better to me...

i always look at distortion as an effect while overdrive is a result.

It's like masterbation...... cheap, easy, and makes weird noises....But in the end, just not as satisfying as the real thing......
