Yes. I run all my modulation pedals into the compressor, then into the MXR Ten Band EQ, then into the effects loop. But it also works in the front of the amp as well to tighten up your distortion. Try it both ways and find the sound you like best.

Peavey classic chorus 1991 -how do you connect a distortion pedal the power amp jacks at rear tried affects loop in front bid drop in power-do you connect same way as effects loop with send /return

Pedals operate at a different level then rack units that go in the effects loop.
It needs to go in front of the amp input. Guitar to pedal to amp input.

I have a Peavey XR-600 PA Head, I would like to know if and how can I connect a MX 200 Dual Reverb Effects Processor to the PA Head?

If it has a effects loop output and input on the p.a. head and a in and out on the reverb effects processor, then yes you can, just run the effects loop output signal into the input on your reverb processor, out of the output back into the input effects loop on the p.a. head, kinda like you would a effects pedal thru the effects loop of a guitar amplifier. hope this helps!

I have a gallien kreuger backline 600 bass amp head . and I'm wondering how to use the effects loop send and return jacks with a pedal or processor ?

Run a cable from the Send to the effects and a cable from the effects to the Return. This would be in place of running a cable from the bass guitar to the effects to the amp input.

The control for the Effects Loop Mix seems to function like a master volume control. I get no sound in ay channel if the Effects Loop Mix control is in the "EFF" position (right) and sound...

That is the way it is supposed to work... It is a level control to control the level sent to an EXTERNAL effects unit. What external effects unit are you using? Brand and model please. If you proportion more to the effects loop, you want to make sure the EXTERNAL effects unit is on and its gain controls are up. The foot switch input should control the EXTERNAL effects unit when you plug the footswitch into the EXTERNAL unit. The footswitch input on the amp itself has NOTHING to do with the external effect loop, it only affects the amp's own DFX unit.

How To Use The effect Loop?

The effect loop is to use exteernal effect module... It is NOT to use guitar pedals !!!! The signals are line levels, NOT guitar type levels. An example of a device might be an Alesis Quadraverb. You take the effect send jack and run it into the inout of the effects module and the output of the effects module into the effects return jack. Many try to use guitar pedals and massive distortion results because levels are too high for the pedals.

I have an SWR workingpro 2x10c combo solid state amp. When running a signal into the standard input with all pots set at 12 o clock, the signal sounds very distorted. I have tried a basic troubleshoot,...

You haven't told us what "signal" you ran in... Make sure ALL interconnected equipment is powered from the same receptacle. All audio lines should use balanced interconnects where possible using XLR or TRS cables. Cross connect another amps preamp into the effect loop input to check the power amp portion.

The loop and the manual tone store functionality !

Usually the loop in is used with an EXTERNAL effects module where the audio signal is "looped" out through the external effect module and then back to the power amp to drive the speaker in the cabinet. The LOOP IN jack would receive signal from the EFFECTS module OUT jack.

The source to go TO the effects module INPUT may come from a jack such as preamp out, or sometimes the same loop jack if it usess the TRS (Tip-Ring-Sleeve) connection method.

If you do not have an external effects module, all this is a moot point in your case.

I just purchased a mackie 1604 vlz3 and am trying to figure out where all the parts and wires go to and how do i know if a trs is required or just mono ect... i have a compressor/effects/bbe/wireless mic/...

The user manual has fairly good diagrams.

Get user manual here:

On page 34 is the BLOCK layout which has everything you need to know, once you figure how to read it!!!

The Triangle symbols are operational amp/analog summing amps.

By looking at the jack symbols you can tell if they are mono or TRS.

A lot of the TRS ones will show a TRS three lead jack but have a resistor to ground. These can be used as mono's.

The TRS (stands for Tip-Ring-Sleeve) connectors are used in two ways. One is as a balanced input where both the signal and its inverse is used. A balanced line is far more noise free and ground loop free than an unbalanced line.

Another use of the TRS is for external effect insertion where the sleeve is ground and the tip is the signal SENT to the external effect box and the ring is the RETURNed signal from the effect box.

SOMETIMES you may have to make your own cables to get the signals where you want them on the connectors.

HINT: Use XLR connections wherever you can. More rugged, balanced and noise free- ground loop free.

Outboard effects

Hey Jay
Some amps have whats known as an effects loop. That is two Jacks that will be labeled something along the lines of "Effects loop in" and another "out" you can use these to run your pedal or rack systems and still keep your front input free. Although most pedal systems are designed to run through that input.
Alternatively you could run one lead from you guitar which splits off into two, one would run to an Amp the other through your effects to a second amp or possible to the second channel of the original amp.
If you want more specific advice you'd have to give me the details of your amp and effects and i can help you out further.
