what are the pros and cons of a wet/dry rig

what are the pros and cons (sound-wise)? Is it worth doing?

 

I have 2 cabinets, a 2 channel power amp, a preamp with regular outs and a dry out, and an Intellifex in the fx loop. Is it simply a matter of regular out to one channel and dry out to the other channel? Should both dry and wet channels be of equal volume?

Sound wise, wet/dry or better yet wet/dry/wet is the best way to amplify a guitar.

The wet to dry ratio is personal preference. Ideally you want two dry outputs where one of the outs is connected to an efx processor in series with the dry set to 0%.

 

cons are the hassle of setup and weight only.

I'm not getting this part. Can you explain "dry set to 0%"?

 

So I don't use the fx loop of the preamp and instead do this:

dry: pre out 1 > power amp ch1

wet: pre out 2 > efx > power amp ch2

 

???

Exactly.

Make sure the efx processor is not outputting any of the dry signal. Dry signal only from the dry cab.
