Could you use a cable splitter to put two guitars through one amp?

Not for gigging etc. just for very low level practise.

Problems? Big bang? or sound quailty drop maybe.

My amp has two inputs, when two guitars are hooked up, the one with lesser power gets drowned out.

Eh... I wouldn't reccommend it dude. Definitely not going to be the best thing in the world...

I got really bad feedback when I tried it so I would say to save your ears the pain.

Technically, you can, however should you? nah... generally cable splitters are for 1 guitar into multiple amps

And what your doing domigan lefty can be very dangerous i think... The 2 inputs dont mean you can plug 2 guitars in at once. One is low and one is a high input... Most likely... Ive never and never would try it with my marshall but i cant imagine itd be too amazing for the amp...

No problem, the kids run a keyboard, bass and mic into the same tiny Squier bass amp with no issues. The keyboard is 100 times hotter than the guitar, so this combination should have wrecked the amp long ago. Guitars have a very low line level, even with powered EMG's.

Of course it won't sound as clear as two amps, as the cone will be vibrating way too much.

What i normally do is have one input with wah, the other "clean" (until i get a whammy pedal or other incredible effect)
It just happened a friend popped up with his guitar, and i have only one amp...
