    I have a pedal board all set up and when I hook up my to my send and return inputs it wont play my effects and it doesn't make any sound and if I turn my pregain all the way up it'll make sound but just a heavily distorted sound.

    I've checked all my cables and they're all good but can anyone tell me what is going on?
  2. Two possibilities come to mind.

    Fx out going to pedal loop out?
    Loop contacts corroded? Normally the amp would have cut out if it is a series loop.

    If it is a series loop any dud cable or pedal will kill output.

    IMO a pedal board with instrument level pedals should be placed before the input of the amp. The FX loop tends to be more for line level units.
