your amp has two sections - a preamp (this is what gives your amp tone and is adjustable via knobs) and the poweramp (power to your speaker)

the fx loop puts the signal between the two, so your delay or phaser or whatever will come after the preamp but before the poweramp

hope this helps

but what purpose does it have?


so your fx sound better than if they were put in front of the preamp (ie. your delay will be more noticeable, your phaser won't be washed out sounding)

so the distortion from the preamp is added before the effects rather than after, which if the best position for some pedals
