I currently run an entirely mono setup on my pedalboard, but I’d like to have the option of making use of the stereo pedals as and when the mood takes me.
Problem is, I don’t know if it’s actually possible with my setup, and this is where im a bit of a luddite. Signal path is as follows, stereo pedals (and their connections) in bold.

To those of you who run occasional stereo boards, is it possible to connect the above in that order, with all the stereo pedals functioning in stereo, or do their respective locations in the chain present problems? In an ideal world, I’d like there to be a box at the end of it all with a switch which selects between overall stereo out, or a summed mono output, so that I can choose between 1 amp or 2. I’d only ever so occasionally use stereo in reality, but if it’s possible I’d like the option.
- What would I need to buy to make the above doable? Im really thick when it comes to effects loops etc, and I also have in my mind that there might be phase issues to consider too, but again that’s where start and end in know-how. I suspect there are a series of clever gigrig boxes I’d need…..
