If you're using a Fender or Marshall you can run a cable from input 2 to the input of the second amp - yes, that's right - INPUT to INPUT.


Just like you jump channels.


Don't run a speaker output into an input.

 

So, how do you "jump channels"? Do you mean use both channels of a two channel amp, for example?

none of the above will work for me. I have a direct out on one but no loop on the other.

 

So what about running to amps on a A+B switch into one cab? is it just better off leaving them on their own cabs?

 

just playing around with some stuff trying things I have not tried before.

if you have a fender or marshall run a short cable from input 2 of channel 1 to channel 2 input 1.

 

it will let you use all the amp's controls.

I jus run dual amps using stereo outs on one of my pedals. No idea what you ACTUALLY want to do.

 

ha ha I have no idea what I actually want to do either. I just have two amps sitting in front of me right now and I thought hey why not play em both at the same time :thu:

Not sure what your set up is or what you are trying to accomplish.

Are you sharing the amp with the kb player?

Bad idea.

Keyboard amps are for keyboards, you need your own guitar amp. Are you playing acoustic/electric or electric guitar?

I use one of these for running 2 amps. I recommend it.

I have looked at many options for a tube amp. I'd like to try the first option, I think this is a great amplifier. Although I also liked the combo amplifier BUGERA V5 5-Watt

If you are thinking about running one amp into the Tyros, don't. If you hate the sound of the guitar coming out of the Tyros, putting something between your guitar and the Tyros isn't going to help. There's an old computer saying. GIGO. Garbage In Garbage Out. Get a decent guitar amp. That will solve your issues.
