Hi. I'm thinking of buying a new all tube amp and running my pod x3 live through it using the 4 cable method. I've looked into it and it would suit my needs perfectly. The tones and overdrives of a good quality amp with reverb, delay modulation etc configured to post on the pod and even the pod's stomp boxes configured to pre. Here's my problem. I borrowed a marshall 100W AVT which has an effects loop and connected the pod 4 cable method as described in many tutorial videos: 1. Guitar to guitar IN on pod 2. Pod's fx loop send to amp's instrument IN 3. Amp's fx loop send to pod's fx loop return 4. Pod's live out to amp's fx loop return It nearly worked. Thing is I was getting the AVT's sound (which is obviously what I wanted) but the pod's effects were hardly noticeable when configured to post. Configured to pre they were very noticeable but that's not where I want them. One thing I have noticed is that the FX loop on the AVT is parallel and I'm wondering does it need to be series? Maybe I just answered my own question and I need to make sure the new tube amp has a series FX loop but I'm just not sure. If you even know what the hell I'm on about give us a shout. I'd very much appreciate some help. Cheers. Tel.
