...a serial effects loop, and has a master volume control after the loop? I recently bought a Peavey Windsor Studio Combo for the effects loop and power amp, but when I plug my Boss GT-8 into the effects return, the power amp section is at full volume because there is no control for that. The master volume control is before the loop and I get unwanted power tube distortion. Yes that sounds weird, but I want to be able to play clean loud. So far I think Atomic amps are the only solution to my problem..anyone else think so?
are you asking if the amp has an effects loop volume?
Rectoverb has a Master after the loop. Basically almost all Mesas do IIRC
Oh forgot to say that the price range would be under $500 - $600. Not many options are there?
