    It's something I've been wanting to do for ages.
    Not sure about being as picky as having an amp for bass/highs and another for mids.
    Or one running always clean another dirty etc.
    But I'd love to get twin-amp setup on the go, and get a nice blend of two sounds.
    My Marshall DSL100 and some sort of Orange amp I wanted.
    *mind drifts off*

    this is something that im going to be testing out post this friday. I'm going to have a peavey windsor for a classic overdrive/distortion and my traynor 1x12 combo for those sparkling fender-esque cleans. :) i hope :-\

    re traynor for cleans, I have a traynor classic blues 50 and love it for clean and blues stuff. Oh and for a single 12" speaker, it has plenty of volume to hang with the band.

    As for running two amps at same time, it does open the door to get some interesting sound combinations. I know alot of the pro guitarists do it all the time at concerts.

    I'm also toying with the idea. Are you running them together or are you using an A/B switch? If the latter, which? Lehle?

    I haven't recently but always ran two for the stereo, dual effect or single capability. (Stopped doing that when I bought the Peavey Stereo Chorus 400.... too much to lug around with no roadies.)

    ORF is right about the possibilities. Your imagination is your only limitation. 8)
