Effect loop sounds bad question

  1. Hi All,

    I have an SWR Workingman 700 head and have never used the effects loop. Used it for the first time and it sounded bad, almost like an active bass when the battery is dying. I am guessing there is a bad input amp in the circuit.

    Do you think it is fixable?

    What did you plug into it exactly?

    The loop is always in the loop, so the device used is the problem. Loops are usually line level, so you can't use a stomp pedal with them.
