    so i tried it with the LS2, but my 2 fuzz were now seeing the buffer out and it changed the sound a little

    Is there a passive way to do that (split the signal without loss and re combining it passively (or active, less of a problem at the output IMOHO)

    i want to gut my 2 chineese fuzz and put them both in a double size enclosure with the parallel stuff (and a series switch for good measure), both to save space on my pedal board and to have an all in one stoner machine (may even integrate my fake EP booster at the end after the summing)

    is there any way to do this or i am just dreaming of impossible things?

    Just use a non-buffered ABY box and then use a receiver box and yeah, should be good

    but wouldn't the passive ABY load the pickup and alter the fuzz tones?

    and is the passive mixing of both ok to do?

    Since its passive, it wouldn't do any more damage than an extra few feet of cable. As for the second question, I believe it's ok to do, I've done it many times before with no problems.
