Re: the proper way of setting up a foot board to my amp...
Run a jack from your guitar to Input R Mono on the pedal.
Run a jack from Output R Mono on the pedal to the input of your amplifier.
There is a switch for guitar or Bass. Put the swich on guitar
You do not need a preamp to use this pedal.
Hope this helps,

According to me and many professional guitarists, the best chorus pedal is "MXR M234 Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal"
It is durable and easy to use.
Some of its best points are:
? Volume is consistent
? Affordable price range
? Versatile tone and effect

it maybe interference picked up through an unsheided or poorly sheided cable or through single coil type pickups rather though the amp itself. You might also try get your power for the amps and this unit through different circuits.
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 the Boss ME 50. Here's things to try. Use wall outlet to power the 25 instead of batteries. Have volume on amp up, volume on pedal all the way up, volume pedal all the way up(depressed), no gain on amp(use clean channel or clean setting if only 1 channel)effects on amp off(reverb, chorus, delay, boost, etc.) mid range knob below 5. only 1 pickup on, guitar tone knob all the way towards treble. If this puts you in the ballpark you can then make slight tweaks to any of these settings. What we're trying to do is not run a dirty sound from the pedal board into an amp with dirty settings. That double dirt often causes a muddy sound. Aside from that you can back off on various effects in the patches. My 50 has a list of the patches and factory settings, so if the drive, for example is set on 8, I might back it off to 4, or the compressor, or the delay, etc. If you like the sound save it. If not continue on. Start with the amp 1st. Higher output tubes(such as JJ's produce a cleaner sound. Also the demo you heard was not coming from your guitar speaker which may not be on the clean side.
Usually the adapter will over ride the battery when used. 1) Make sure your 1/4" cables are working properly without the pedal "in-line".
2) Take out battery, and use just the adapter only. Make sure it is the correct and proper adapter that works with Boss. Usually the PSA-120. If you are not using a Boss Adapter, make sure yours is a direct replacement with same specifications. 9V/200mA. And "tip negative". DO NOT use Radio Shack stuff, nothing against them, but there adapters just don't mix well with Boss products and the like.
2) Try just the battery, no AC adapter. Remember to unplug the input when not in use. Saves battery.
Basic rule of thumb...when using correct AC adapters for all your pedals all the time, and all sounds good, then take out the batteries.
If you still experience problems, it would be an internal IC chip most likely. From there post another question maybe.
With everything switched off. I will surmise that you are using the onboard battery with the foot pedal and not a power supply.
1. Plug lead from guitar/instrument into INPUT side of pedal
2. Plug lead from OUTPUT side of pedal into amplifier INPUT.
3. Turn amplifier volume to about 10 o'clock - to stop blowing your ears out.
4. Turn volume up on guitar to acceptable level.
5. press foot switch on pedal and adjust pedal controls to suit your type of distortion.
6. Play like Hendrix.
ps Just as an after thought rechargeable 9volt batteries are the way to go. I've been using them for years as I always get caught up in the power cable.
If you're going to add another pedal like a Phaser, Compressor, Flanger or what just use small connect leads between each pedal but always, always put the compressor pedal last in the line.
Personally, I like to have all "tone effects", such as wahs, distortions and equalizers in front of "time effects" such as phasers, chorus, flangers and delays. See my set up in the photo. Guitar input is from right to left, starting with the wah pedal.
