    There are many. I would get an ABY pedal so you can switch between channels or run both at the same time if desired.

    The one I recommend is the Radial Bigshot ABY - passive (no power needed), compact, solid as could be and has important features like ISO, ground lift and phase reversal, which is more important when running two different amps together, but still great features only found on the nicer ABY boxes. They are bit more than the cheap Morley and Whirlwind ABYs, but so worth it. A nice amp like that deserves the right stuff.

    Is there signal loss using an aby box in an amp like deluxe reverb?
    Does the aby box have to have a buffer or is it not necessary?

    It is just a switch determining where the signals go. Should have no more effect than plugging into the amp jacks.

    I use a Fender aby to switch normal and vibrato channels also works upload_2020-10-18_12-29-49.png using two amps.
