    Just thinking out loud here,

    I have a Twin and a Marshall.

    The Marshall is two channel footswitchable. I can make one louder for solo boost (though the tone is a touch different, I think I can make it work).

    The Twin I used to run with with an A/B switch and just ran the Vibrato Channel louder for solo boost - again, slightly different tone but works (and separate EQ on that one).

    Can I run my guitar into 1 A/B, send one side to the Marshall, and then send the other side to ANOTHER A/B, and then each of those on to the two inputs on the Twin?

    TIA,
    Steve

    If you are not going to have phase issues, run a VHT Valvulator to the twin side.

    I believe you only get phasing issues if you send the same signal to both the normal and vib channels simultaneously - I'd be using them one at a time.

    So you think there's going to be some signal degradation doing it this way?

    Watch out for ground loops. That is generally what plagues multiple amp setups.

    With a marshall and a fender I generally run a chorus pedal and have the marshall direct and the fender wet, sounds like two guitars playing at once. I have an EH Memory Man that I use this way, and it really sounds great. I can change the mix level to get one amp or the other, but TBH I usually have both going it sounds killer.
