Playing your Guitar in Stereo

Feeling like your tone needs more dimension, more dynamic, and just more oomph? What you can do if you have more than one amp is to play them in stereo and you’ll get closer to that fullness you so desire.

How? To play your guitar in stereo between two amps, there are a few ways to do this:

Way #1 – Use an A/B/Y Box. This pedal will allow you to plug into two amps, and play them together or separately, which is controlled by a footswitch.

Way #2 – Stereo Delay pedal. Like an A/B/Y Box, there is two outputs, though one would be for the guitar signal and the other for the delay signal. This way can sound particularly amazing if you set the delay pedal to a slapback setting. Would really get the true essence of an echo!

Way #3 – Splitter adapter… splits your mono guitar cord in two.

Way #4 – If you are using Marshall Superlead heads, you can do like Hendrix and Page and patch the amps together by putting a cord from the one input of one amp into another input of another amp.

Once you get in stereo, prepare for more volume, and more fun!
