cabling question

i don't think this is an issue but here is my question...

if i built an ABY switch to go between two sets of pedals...when i get to the end of each line, and want each line to continue down the same singular path, can i sum them easily with a Y cable into the next pedal?

i don't think it's an issue of grounding, and i don't think that it would load the line either...but...that is why i ask...

I want to make it for the delay, like you said...a cheap way to get tails
So...per my previous post...

The current plan a passive A/B box that routes one way or the other...then build a passive 'summing' pedal where they come back this...

I read about using 2k2 resistors... @mhammer suggested 10k which would be fine too...i should have either, and hopefully enough jacks to make what i want (a poor mans delay pedal with tails)
I understand that due to the summing ill have a little volume drop, but hopefully not enough to make it detrimental

Am i missing anything?

No...just dontvwan to ditch my dd7 to spend 2-3x that for one that will tail...when i can spend $20 and make this work
