im getting an ISP decimator pedal for my 5150, but i dont really know how to hook shit up through my effects loop, do i just run a cable from the send jack into the ISP and then back to the return? or would it just work better to run it like guitar>pedal>amp>? thanks

if you want to use the effect loop, run a cable from the "send" jack on the amp INTO the pedal, and another cable OUT of the pedal and plug thatone into "return" on the back of the amp.

with one pedal, you won't notice too much difference between using the loop and plugging it straight in along with your guitar. if you were running like 5 pedals, you might want to start using the loop.

I find my flanger and chorus work much better in the effects look, the sound is much more distinct.

Just put it in the Effects look, and then in your regualr set-up, and see which one works better for you.

jst wondering then... cos the effects loop is after the preamp stage right.. could the signal be too big for the pedal to handle?

not really. it might sound slightly different between the direct line and the loop, but it won't overload anything. Many amps have power supply options for their loops, depending on what kind of pedal you're using; one of those gigantic stuido-in-a-pedal things uses more power than a 9V boss pedal.
