Hi, took the plunge and bought a Z Maz 18 NR, noticed it has an effects loop.

Does anyone have an experience using modulated effects in that loop?

It'd be a whole lot cooler if you did.

I have a Maz38NR so hopefully close enough...modulated effects? I only run 'verb and delay through the loop. Chorus, Vibe, Trem, and Phaser go through the front...

rarely used a loop, but I thought chorus and trem should be put in the loop...I guess i'll have to try. Nice avatar btw !

The MAZ 18 effects loop is not buffered. Put at least one buffered pedal in the loop and it works fine.

IF you run long cables out to a pedal board, you might hear some loss of highs and punch.

When I use FX in the loop of my Maz, a TC Nova delay is first in the chain. It's a fairly nice sounding buffer (non- true-bypass)

Even a buffered pedal will not help get all your tone back.
A dumbleator type device will be needed.
Otherwise, use the amp as a clean platform for pedals and put everything in front of the amp (THIS is where a buffered pedal will help the most).
