I got my son the Microtubes B7K Ultra preamp pedal.  He has an Ampeg  Micro CL Stack.  Can anyone tell me the best way to hook up this pedal? Should I use the effects loop, send on amp to in on pedal/pedal out to return on amp or input to pedal in, pedal out to bass?


Thanks for any help.

Welcome to Guitar Zone :)


To be perfectly honest, it's all about what you think is right for you. Personally I never really bothered with an effects loop. I like the direct in / direct out setup. I've never noticed any audible difference between the 2 setups. I run 8 or 9 pedals into my amp and it works well for me. It's also a much more straightforward approach.


Best thing to do is to experiment and see what works best for you.
