I have had this amp for about a week and cant figure out how to use the effects loop with my pedals and my new Mxr noise clamp. my pedals consist of a Tuner, distortion, phasor, delay, and 10 band EQ. I know how to patch in the effects but how do I hook up my Noise clamp. any ideas? Btw my amp is a 95 model blues Deville.

The noise clamp didn't come with a manual?

yes but it says to run the send and return to the amps effects loop and then run the in and out thru the guitar to the input on the amp. how do I install the rest of my effects? I am not sure on how to use the pedal with the rest of my effects. I think on a tube amp u are suppose to run the effects thru the effects loop. not the guitar input. if I hook up the noise gate like the instructions says how do I run the rest of my effects?

I guess that the manual download on the website is different than yours? :lol: It doesn't say anything about the amp's loop at all, only the noise clamp loop.

"Run a cable from your guitar to
your Noise Clamp’s Input jack
and run another cable from the
Noise Clamp’s output jack to
your amplifier.
• Run a cable from the Noise
Clamp’s Send jack
to the input
of the first pedal in your effects
chain. Run another cable from the
Noise Clamp's Return jack to the
output jack of the last pedal in
your effects chain."

I suppose that some of your pedals can be inserted into the amp's effects loop also, with the rest hooked into the noise clamp loop, but you'll have to experiment and see. Some times distortion effects don't sound good in the amp loop, but time-based effects do, so maybe the tuner and/or the delay and/or the EQ could go in the amp loop. Try one effect at a time in the amp loop, then try two, three, see which if any sound good or better. The amp's loop works the same way that the noise clamp loop works, "Preamp Out" from the amp to the input of the first effect in the chain that you want in the amp loop, and "Power Amp In" from the output of the last pedal in the chain that you want in the amp loop.

You might have been a little too excited about your new pedal, reading the manual too quickly? :lol:

As another option, with all other pedals connected in the Noise Clamp loop, try using the tuner connected only to the amp's "Preamp Out", thus removing the tuner from the signal chain. No good reason to have a tuner in the signal chain. This is how I typically use my amp, no effects just a tuner connected to the Preamp Out.
