Fender Mustang Floor Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal

I just purchased a Fender Mustang Floor Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal. I'd like to know how (or if it's even possible) can I run it through my Mesa Boogie Dual Rec Head and be able to use all the effects. So far, I've got nothing. I'd like to be able to change channels on the Fender Mustang Floor Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal and have it come through the amp. Any suggestions?

Just did a quick search on images with it. I can see why you're confused

It should be possible to do. Check over the manual and make sure that everything is connected correctly.

With what I found in the PDF of it, you want to use one of the jacks marked "unbalanced out" into the front of your amplifier, or if you want to run it in the loop, then the loop send goes into the pedal input and the unbalanced out into the loop return.

Also, it has a level control for the outputs, so make sure that that isn't turned down.

Read the manual.

run the guitar into the mustang and run the unbalanced out and run it into the mesa's effects return. this will utilize all the modeling of the mustang.

running the guitar into the mesa and sending it to the mustang will start chaining preamp with modeling and i'd prefer not to do that myself.

Way to be condescending. You didn't mention in the OP you actually read the manual at all so I'll assume you haven't, like the other 9/10 times.

Run it in the loop for general purposes. It'll be nicer for your modulations/delays/reverbs/distortions because it won't be going through your preamp.

It doesn't come with a manual but it does come with a hard to remove tag that clearly tells you how to connect the unit to an amp. In fact, the card about 6" x 6" and is very detailed in its description of how to perform an initial connection.

If you do take the time to download the advanced manual from Fender's website it will tell you somewhere in there that you need to push the Utility button to the right of the data wheel and keep pushing it until you get to a menu that allows you to output the sound via any number of output devices and ports.

By default, you can run a cable from the unbalanced L output straight into your amp input, plug your guitar into the Mustang Floor's input, turn it all on, and be playing in seconds. This particular unit does not take a rocket scientist to figure out and using it should be very intuitive.

In passing, web searches are your friend. In the time it takes to sign in here, one could do a simple web search and likely come up with hundreds of posts which answer said question. It works for me.

Hi,
I just purchased that Fender M.Floor. What you think could be a good amp under 300$ for this multi-effect pedal?
Need you help!
Thx!
