Crazy idea? Amp 1 effects loop send, into pedal, into amp 2 input?

Like this, Peavey 6505+ effects loop send, into a G-Major 2 rack input, then from that, left out back into the 6505+ effects loop return, BUT... right out signal into the main input of an old Fender tube amp that does not have an effects loop.

Thinking it might produce some awesome stereo sounds, especially with delay.

Damage possible to either amp?

Thanks!

If the 6505+ has a line out, use that. If you go through the loop and don't complete it, nothing will come out of that.

Never mind that, didn't see that you'd be completing the loop.

The only issue that I could foresee is cable mess and probably a lot of buzzing.

Signal to the Fender will likely be too hot, but that may be adjustable in the G-Major?

Haha, yeah, I assume there might be some grounding issues or the like that could create buzz... thing is, I'm not running it straight, it's going into a GMajor 2, then splitting from the left/right outputs on the back.

As long as theres no risk of blowing up my amps, I'll try it and see what happens.

There are adjustable line in/line out knobs on the G Major 2... but I suspect it will still sound weird. I might try it just the same.

shouldn't really, especially if you have level controls.

You are only sending "signal" out of the g major, not "power". Therefore it won't damage any of your gear. The worst that may happen is the signal coming from the g major maybe at a different impedance that what should be used for the input of the fender and this will result in a thin sound. This all depends on what output you use on the g major, so experiment!
