Hi there,

I have a blackstar HT5 mini stack and was trying to connect the GT 10 into its effect loop. However I got no sound from the amp at all. I am 100% sure that the amp effect loop works because I tested it with my other pedals. Also the GT 10 itself works normally.

The only configuration that works is: Guitar --> GT 10 input --> GT 10 output --> Amp input

I also tried the 4 cable method and it doesn't work either. However when using 4cm, if I bypass the effect loop of the GT-10, I can get sound from the amp but it's like using GT-10 as a preamp and the blackstar as poweramp (knobs on the amp don't affect the sound at all).

I am really confused here... Thanks for looking and any advice will be appreciated.

Stupid question, but you did connect everything right, correct? You didn't try connecting sends to sends and returns to returns at all?

I'm sure I connect everything the way it should be. Thanks for the reply!

Yes that's how I connect them. Thanks for the reply.

Have you toggled your FX loop level switch on your amp yet?

There is only a push button in the back to switch between -10db and +4db. I tried both and neither worked. Thanks!

Is it a stereo output? Have you made sure the output isn't thrown to the side you aren't using?

I used the L/MONO output of the GT 10 if that's what you asked. Thanks!

You're not supposed to bypass the effect loop. It has to be enabled. The amp is in the loop.

I am aware that in the 4cm the preamp of the amp is in GT-10's effect loop. I only mentioned that because if I enable the GT-10 effect loop there is no sound. Thanks!

Problem solved. I switched one of the cables with another one and it worked... really wield cause the replaced cable works perfectly fine...

I have a Monster cable that only works sometimes, I just chalk it up to demonic possession.

FYI, Guitar Center doesn't exchange Monster cables anymore, the frickin' bastards.

how can they not, I would assume if they sold them they would have to honor the warranty.

Sometimes shit is dumb. But that is surprising.

I was kinda pissed. Monster still honors the warranty, but you can't exchange it at Guitar Center anymore. Livewire is still exchangeable at GC, I know what I'm buying from now on. Screw Monster and their shoddy, overpriced cables. GC probably got sic of exhanging them so often.

i have quite a few, i won 4 of them in a competition in Sam Ash a long time ago, and then i got some from a CL ad, where he was selling them for half price new. they aren't the best, but i really didn't pay a lot compared to what i have .

i am making them from now on. bulk cable and switchcraft ends, i have had good luck with that from the patch cables i made. now i am going to order more for main cables.
