  • What effects should NOT go in an amps effects loop???

    And why?

    Would fuzz in an effects loop destroy the universe? I'm using a Fender Blues Deville 410. I figure if my entire pedal chains were in the effects loop then the amps overdrive would be first. I assume the same thing for the spring reverb on the amp. And if that is the case, then i imagine my fuzz would do crazy things to the onboard reverb.

    I'm having trouble with a guitar part that i use the amps overdrive for. I have my Spring Theory in a momentary effects loop, but being before the amps overdrive means it get's compressed and has a less dramatic effect when engaged momentarily. If i just move the reverb into the effects loop, then it will **************** around with my effects order.

    I figure i either have all effects in the effects loop, or a buy a separate low-medium gain overdrive to run at the front of my chain, and i just forget the amps overdrive altogether.

    Anywho.
    Great dealings with theinteriorleag!

    time based effects for effect loop. also make sure that they are at the correct signal level for your specific loop. I bought my amp bc of the effects loop and never use it now. extra cable length kills tone

        Try it in the loop, and see what happens. Can't hurt. May not sound great, but it can't hurt. The one thing I will say is that your fuzzes could act as a boost more, since they won't just be pushing the front end of the amp if they're in the loop.

        Personally, I tried putting my pedals in my effects loop, and I quit after a few days. Just doesn't sound right to me. It's like it makes everything too "clean" if that makes sense. I guess I like my delays with some dirt to them.
