    I'm thinking of throwing a pod xt pro in the effects loop of an ashdown preamp since I really dont want to use the pod as the preamp itself.

    anyone done this? How did you hook it up? using the line in jacks in the back or through the bass in in the front of the unit?

    Thanks!

    Effects in the POD are average at best.
    Why not buying a real effect unit instead ?

    It all depends on your budget.
    I love the Boss VF-1, easy to find although it's discontinued.
    The Rocktron Blue Thunder is a stellar effect unit along with a very decent preamp (that you may choose to use or not).
