    Hey there,

    So I'm selling some gear and getting a Rusty Box. I've got a good board and prefer to use this a pre into a Fusion550 and was wondering just how to do that since the manual kinda confused my simple brain. Is it a matter of using the Line Out right into the Input of the amp or is that far to simple?

    Dumb question but could use the help

    The drive pedal I'm using on my board is a Malekko JMJ sig thing, hope this isn't over kill.

    Best way IMO is to bypass the amp's preamp by running the Rusty into the fx loop return jack on the amp, using the Fusion just as a clean power amp. But you can also run it into the normal instrument input; try it both ways to see which you prefer.

    main out into your amp input, or line out into you fx return.
