Okay I did a search for this too no avail.

Can you just clarify to me what exactly an FX loop is and how you use one?

Cheers.

It lets you use your effects after the preamp so it doesn't "color" your sound.

Edit: The preamp can make the effects sound different then they otherwise would, that's why amps have effect loops so you can get the effects after the preamp in the amplification chain.

What Guitarmike said ^.

If you don't have an effects loop, but have a ton of pedals, there will be more space between your guitar signal and your amp, 'cause you to lose tone. If they are in the effects loop, they wont suck as much tone from your guitar, and it will sound "more natural".

Okay I understand that now, my gigging amp does have an FX loop by the way, so how do I actually set up a pedal on the FX loop?

Send --> pedal input --> pedal output --> return


It's pretty basic.
