My Maz Jr.'s effects loop is instrument level (-20). Is there a mod that can take it to line level to work with rack gear?
I still haven't tried mine, but there is a unit called a Nobels RP-31 I think, that can change levels as well as has two separate loops. You can boost with it, and anywhere because the boost/cut controls are: input (from preamp), send (effects1, effects2), Return (fx 1 and 2), and return (out to power amp).jeffinaustin said:My Maz Jr.'s effects loop is instrument level (-20).

No, or actually...that is only the second half of it...first don't you need to boost the -10db into the effect? I had the opposite problem (that's why I bought the Nobels) with my prosonic. The effects loop is built with rack gear in mind. So its' effects loop is +10db...which drove my delay into digital noise...terrible. So I needed to do what your amp already does...tame the high signal down, hopefully to -4db or so...but then the return is expecting +10db so all I did was make the amp quieter, so I needed something to boost it back up again.jeffinaustin said:Wouldn't be the other way around? The FX loop itself is -10. Rack effects are +4 so wouldn't I need something to somehow "unbalance" or "pad down" the signal from the effect?
Obviously I'm flying blind here
