Could I use one of these as an effects loop? because my Vox amp doesn't have one and I hate how my effect pedals muddy up my tone.
It wouldn't be the same, an amp's effects loop is after the preamp eq and gain stage.
This loop would still be in the front of your amp, before the preamp stage and would make little to no difference. If you have a valvetronix or similar modelling amp, it doesn't like external effects too much anyway. The modelling circuitry needs clean, dry guitar to be played through it to work at it's best. Maybe this is the reason your tone is muddied up.
These go to eleven...
