I got my ISP Decimator, wooo! But when I tried to use it through my halfstack I couldn't get it to work!! What is wrong! I used it through my 15watt Line6 Amp and it works fine... WTF!

Try it in the effects loop? If it's battery powered maybe change the battery.

I tried it the effects loops, the battery is brand new.. Could it be the levels of my Send and Return of the head??

make sure it's using a series loop if you have it. If it's parallel, make sure the wet/dry mix is 100% wet.

Well It works on my 15watt but when I use it on the halfstack I have to turn my volume all the way up to hear anything and it sounds like poop

if your amp has a series loop, the signal passes thru the preamp, then the fx loop, then the poweramp. If you interrupt that, like unplug something in the loop, no signal reaches the power amp. With this kind of loop, the signal is always wet if you have something on the fx loop.

with a parallel loop, it runs a dry signal in parallel with the signal it's feeding thru the FX loop. This way you can dial in how much wet tone from the fx is mixed with the dry signal running parallel with it. For a gate to work effectively on this kind of loop, you have to set the wet/dry mix so all the signal is passing thru the fx loop, so all the signal runs thru the gate instead of running a parallel dry signal.

That sounds like a problems somewhere in the send/receive settings. Do any pedals work on the loop?

I think it's a series loop, since I don't see a wet mix control. I do see send and return level controls on the back, where are those set?

This happened to me because I had a pedalboard with 2 input cable jacks, and 2 send jacks, and I put the input cable in the 1st input jack and the send in the 2nd send jack. I don't know if that applies to your amp (I've never had your half-stack,) but see if that helps at all or if it's just confusing you and is pointless.

well, not sure where your levels should be, but maxxed could be driving the input on the decimator too hard. Try running them both at noon, and adjust send until the tone sounds right, then adjust the return to match the volume with the loop disengaged.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

are they different cables than the ones you're using for the Line6? Use the same cables, and yes, they should be regular instrument/guitar cables. If it's working with the Line6, it's not the pedal, so it has to be something else in the chain.

I have the same amp you have. Listen its really easy to use it, because I even know WHY you bought this pedal. The b-52 is prone to that buzz on the gain channels.

1) Connect the pedal LAST before you go into your input, **** the fx loop, you don't need it there.
2) Keep the pedal off. Turn up the gain to a level you feel comfortable playing at, dial in your tone etc etc.
3) You should hear that annoying buzz, even when you are muting your strings. Its just how the b-52 works, and its ok.
4) Turn on the pedal and turn it all the way down, aka -70 or whatever is lowest.
5) Turn the dial UP until the buzz goes away, then turn it just a tad bit more.
Pain is an illusion.

Make sure that the pedal is running through the front of the amp AND through the effects loop at the same time.

This only applies to the G-string Decimator. Sounds like he either doesn't know how to work the FX loop or has the knob turned into the off position...

What are you expecting it to you do? You know it just cuts back on hum and feedback, right?
