Re: Ping: 2 Amps in a Guitar Looping Setup?

If you're looking for a looper as well, the Repeater has a whopping 4 
outputs.  As you're amps are mono in, you could use two of the outputs 
going to each amp.  This would leave the other outputs to be used a 
stereo effect loop.  The Repeater has four tracks which can be panned to 
either output.  This would let you have your guitar signal go to either 
or both amps.  The one drawback is that the initial signal would go to 
both.  Still a pretty versatile setup.
