Members randombastage Posted May 31, 2010 Members Share Posted May 31, 2010 I'm looking at buying a pedal for a few uses, one of them being to put in the effects loop return to control the overall volume of the signal returning to the amp. I plan to have a stereo output from a Line6 M13, send one side back to the main amp's effects return and the other side to an Atomic amp. The Atomic is a power tube section only with no volume control. Since the main amp is a master volume type amp which will be used at low volumes sometimes I need to be able to 'turn down' the volume of the Atomic to match the volume of the main amp so I get a nice even stereo mix. Reducing the signal going into the Atomic seems like the easiest way to do that. Is a volume pedal supposed to be low or high impedance (I see both kind advertised) for use in an effects loop? Am I making a mistake trying to match the volume this way? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
