    As many of you know I recently got a Diezel Einstein 100w head and paired it with a new Marshall 1x12.
    Well I played it and tweaked it until it sounded perfect by itself.
    So now I’ve acquired an ABY pedal so I can run both my Marshall DSL40C and my Diezel at the same time.

    If no one has tried running two amps at once, I HIGHLY recommend it!!!

    I can’t believe how good they sound in unison! Absolute tone perfection!

    Sorry for the long and probably unnecessary post! :D

    Yeah, dual is cool! My main rig is a pairing of a Marshall and a Leslie. When you spin up the Leslie is gets really interesting.

    I had a Carvin DC200K guitar in the 80's. It was wired in stereo so each pickup could go to its own amp. I had the neck pickup go through various effects to a 1970's Fender Twin Reverb and the bridge through other effects to a USA made Peavey. The variety of tones you could dial in and combine or separate at the flick of a switch was amazing. Both amps together gave the thickest tone.

    A lot of good examples! I meant through two simultaneously, I'm sorry to say I cant completely tell if there are tow amps simultaneously. Ive used dual low end solid state amps and the difference was subtle and really only gave the benefit of two amps with contrasting settings to create unique tones and effects. It wasnt practical in my case, but I'm sure there are more possibilites with other more proffesional amps.

    The best example of rotary and regular combined that I know is this song at 3:49:



    David Gilmour prefers to blend the two on stage so it doesn't get two slurpy. He also runs his time processing (delay and reverb) into the rotary cab which is pretty trippy. I tried it and liked it as well. In this concert he was using his usual HiWatt and a custom-built "Doppola "cabinet with actual rotating speakers rather than stationary speakers firing into rotating horns, rotors or vanes. I don't hear that much difference and he retired the Doppolas after one tour because the became unreliable. The clean and rotor blend is a nice sound, though, and the one I was most interested in reproducing.

    I've got two rotary cabs and a Hughes and Kettner Rotosphere so I'm a bona-fide swirlyhead. [​IMG]

    When I get my Egnater out of the shop, I'm going to run it dually with my VHT Special 6, at least at home. Don't want to cart two amps and cabs to rehearsal or a club.
