I will admit I am a bit of a novice when it comes to effects loops. Mosts of my amps have either not had one, or I really just haven't used them. I'd like to give it a try, but the amp I have has a line level signal on the effects loop (might have said that wrong??), and I've read that those type of effect loops do not play well with most pedals. My question is, what is the best way to deal with this? Will a simple good buffer fix this, or will I need to buy some extra gear to get the best performance out of it? The G-Lab Amp Loop Adapter ALA-1 (which I can't find for sale in the US) was suggested to me, which would seem to do the trick from reading the description, but I am wondering if any of the experts here on TGP have any other info to contribute on this subject. Any info is appreciated. Thanks!!
