A hit switcher.
The Lehle Dual enables you to switch between 2 amps or run your signal to both amps. The signal is routed directly (without semiconductors) via gold-plated relays to Output A or B or both. A is electrically isolated from B by means of a high-end (Lundahl) line splitter; humming loops are impossible, even if A and B are switched on simultaneously. The Lehle Dual can use any power supply between 8 and 20V with either polarity (AC or DC). The supply voltage is internally rectified and stabilized in order to guarantee trouble free operation. High-intensity LEDs behind a magnifying lens make it easy to read switching state (A and/or B) even under bright spotlights. External trim potentiometers make it possible to adjust Output A or B if both are engaged simultaneously. For example, gain (up to 6dB) can be trimmed back so that one amp gets hit harder than the other. All Lehle switchers are totally passive. To the purist, what this means is that the great tone you bought your particular tube amp for in the first place will not be compromised. Active switcher boxes (with their resultant change in impedance from high to low) cause an amp's crunch/distorted tone to become fuzzy. Lehle switchers maintain that unique interaction between guitar and amp, as if there is only a high-quality cable in-between.

This thing is pretty pricey. I choke every time I think about how much I paid for a switcher. I had to open it up, just praying it would be really complicated inside. Fortunately, it is. The bottom line is this: if you want a quiet switcher to break your ground loops while preserving the true tone of your guitar, this is it. I tried some basic switches, then tried the George Lynch, Switchbone, and some others. The Lynch was noisy. The Switchbone, while pretty cool, changed my guitar tone. The others pretty much sucked wind. This one is the best. Might as well cough it up.
A while back I bought a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amp b/c I thought it would compliment my Peavey Classic 30 and naturally I needed something to tie them together. And after trying a Morley A/B switch and another A/B I found at a local music shop, I saw this one on Musician's Friend and decided to order it. I wasn't disapointed, it blew the others out of the water with its perfect sound quality and ease of use when switching between the two amps. The others are cheaper, but you mind as well pay the extra money if you want your amps sound quality to stay the same.
The pedal works great, very silent. The only problems are: You plug your instrument at the top of the box instead of the bottom and you can't use a battery. Other wise the pedal is rock solid, I've never had a problem with its performance. I suggest buying it!
