    ok... i have a Fender TBP-1 pre-amp and about the only thing missing on this pre is a compressor. I have a compressor on my B-Max and dont know how to hook up the B-Max into the Fenders effects loop. If i plug the Send from the Fender to the Return of the B-Max i get signal to the Compressor working but when i plug the Send from the B-Max back to the Return of the TBP-1 , i get nothing. Plugging into the Fender Return jack seems to mute the whole preamp. I'm a complete effects idiot as i never use them, and dont understand how this should be hooked up. Any ideas??? thanks

    Effect loop send on the Fender to the Input of the B-max, Output of B-Max to the Return of the Fender.

    It sounds like you are trying to run the effects loop of the Fender through the effects loop of the B-max. Not good.
