Marshall Effects Loop help!

Hi. I am wondering if you can tell me how to use an effects loop on a marshall amp. Do you have the line out from your pedals going into the loop and then an additional lead going into the amp?

Please help!

dude.... plug you guitar into the amp as usual... the take a lead out of the effects loop ( effects loop send or out ) into your effects. after that... take a lead from your effects ( output from effects ) back into your amp ( effects return or in )..
should work no prob...... not sure what amp you have so you may have a switch to select the effects loop... but the are usually on more expencive amps...
lets rock..

Uhm, you have to have them the right way round, the send goes to the first effect in the chain, and the last lead goes to the return.
Don't put whammy or wah or true bypass effects in the loop, since the whammy and wah won't work properly in the effects loop and true bypasses dont effect the tone, which is what the effects loop is trying to stop, non true bypass pedals killing the tone.

I`d say OD first normally, what effects do you normally use on the multi?

I reckon it's just a bit of fretboard of an older guitar he smashed up. Perhaps

Isn't it the copper plate from his wah probe ?

Anyway, back to the question in hand, after much messing around with my FX chain it seems my preferred order was:

guitar >whammy > wah > FF > phaser > delay > EQ > amp

The problem with this is that I can't get the FF to feedback properly - now it just rumbles instead of squealing. Is this something to do with the whammy and wah not being true bypass units ? Should I put the FF first in the chain ?

Yes, FF should come first in the chain.

Pedal Set Up Help!!!

I need help setting up my pedals, and the order in which I should place them. (I realise there are other threads about this, but I'd like to have replies to my question alone!! Call me a selfish bastard, but hey!)

I was fine until I got a Fuzz Factory yesterday. Before that I just had a Whammy Pedal and a ZOOM GFX404 multieffects pedal (this is not to become a Zoom bitching thread!). As I and you all know, the Whammy 'likes' coming first. All very well.

Now... when I use the the Fuzz Factory on its own, it's fine, and does what I want it to. ie. mimics Muse (my setting is 2:30 ; 3:15 ; 5:00 ; 5:00), which is like the Plug In Baby Live intro stuff if you play with the stab and the volume.

However, as soon as I put this in the effects loop, it no longer wishes to work like that. So what I'm asking is what order should I put them in, or do I need to adjust the settings on the Fuzz Factory to compensate?

Cheers for any help you can proffer,

Alex

Theres no problem in putting the FF first in the chain. The whammy doesnt need to be first in any chain. I prefer mine last, because then i can mess around with my delay more.

Can you do anything with your effects loop?

Well, not effects loop as such, i think the amp has a socket for one, but i dont (know how to) use it. Would it help if I did?

I just have:

Guitar > ZOOM > Whammy > Amp

Where does the FF go?

More than welcome

Is there only one socket for the effects loop? If there's two their for send and receive in which you would have to put a lead in the send socket, fit it to the beginning of your chain, then the lead coming out of the chain goes in the receive. However I heard the whammy isnt suited for the chain, and is best to go directly through your guitar and into line in socket.

Have you tried taking the Zoom out of the chain, and seeing what happens if its just the whammy and the fuzz?
