    Is it relatively simple to modify a guitar effects pedal to run at +4dB line level?


    I've got a Boss CE-3 that I'm thinking of using in a stereo effects loop. Would it be easy to modify?

    Thanks.

    You could try one of these from Ebtech it is a line Level shifter, I used one with an amp I had several years ago that only had a line level fx loop. This box worked quite well!

    There is a good chance that it will run unmodified in the fx loop, as long as the loop can accommodate unbalanced signals. If so, just try it and see what it sounds like.

    Not so easy to modify. That Ebtech thing looks cool, also Fuchs and Pigrtonix make pedals to use stompboxes in line level loops (with blend options, reverb options, etc)
