"Out front, Satchel keeps a small-but-tidy board that’s packed with only the essentials. He starts with a Boss TU-3 tuner before going into a pair of MXR pedals—a Carbon Copy analog delay and a Classic Overdrive. A Morley ABY Selector helps him move between guitars and the footswitch to his EVH 5150 III rounds out the board." -Premier Guitar; Rig Rundown: Steel Panther's Satchelmore
As you can see (above), Reb's pedalboard is constantly evolving as he adds and discards effects - it ain't the neatest thing you've ever seen! We asked Reb to describe his signal path: "My signal goes into very expensive Shure wireless units, which are the closest thing to being on a cable I have found. From there it goes into a Bradshaw router that helps with guitar changes. Then it goes to the pedalboard and out to the amps." "The pedalboard signal goes to a Cry Baby wah, a Boss Metal Zone distortion, a Danelectro echo for long delays when making weird noises, a Boss tuner and a Digitech Whammy pedal, which is in a loop because it messes with my signal in line. The whammy pedal is great with the long delay for weird noises. Then to a A/B box, which chooses between clean or dirty amps." "The clean line goes from the A/B box into a Guild Hartke bass head with a TC electronics multi effects unit for wetness. The bass head gives a very loud full clean sound. The other signal from the A/B box goes to the Marshall dirty heads." Reb has recently replaced the Boss Overdrive pedal seen on his Homegrown DVD with the Boss Metal Zone, as he felt that the overdrive pedal (used for solo boost) was taking away too much low end. Anyone who has heard Reb's live sound on the 2004 Whitesnake tour will agree he made the right choice! pedalboard pedalboard 1. Pedal Power power supply 2. Boss TU-2 Chromatic Tuner 3.

According to NPR, Comando's rig is as follows: > I am obsessed with Yamaha keyboard. I own a Yamaha p80, but I broke the keys off of it too regularly from playing it really hard on tour. For Slingshot Dakota, I play a Yamaha CP 33 Keyboard through an Ibinez Tubescreamer, a Boss Bass overdrive pedal and a delay pedal. I run these to a Morely AB switch, which goes to 3 amps. The distorted keyboard sounds come out of 3 Roland amps: 2 KC550 amps and a Roland Subwoofer.more
I used this ABY to run my guitar into a Fender Mustang I V combo and a Peavy Rage 158 combo. It sounded great but i had to stop using it do to the fact that it was destroying my amps by making them suck air in and not push air out as they are intended to do.
You can use this for routing between 2 amps if 1) there is no ground loop potential between your amps and 2) you don't mind having your signal cut in half between both amps or you leave both on all the time and feed the morely with a nice line driver.
