Hi, I have a spider valve 112 (not mkII, the original one) with a FBV pedalboard. I'd like to insert external effects pedals betwwen the preamp and amp ; so I could use the preamp modelisations and drive knob of the spider valve to get clear or heavy sound, and add external effects as compressor or chorus after the preamp. I tried with the "preamp out" and "power amp in" connections in this configuration : guitar --> spider valve guitar input --> preamp output --> effects pedals --> power amp in --> my ears :) the last part of the chain was not very happy (my ears ...) because of no sound ! reading the manual, I see preamp output is off when power amp in is used ; quite strange for an effect loop ... With this conf : guitar --> effects pedals --> power amp in --> my ears I get sound, but the FBV pedalboard is not used anymore. I mean the FBV is used by the preamp stage ? Is there any pb with my amp ? if not, how can I insert external effects between preamp and amp with the spider valve 112 AND get sound in my ears :) ? Thanks a lot for your help,
