    Below is a picture of my rack what I have in it!

    Ashley PB41 preamp
    BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer
    DBX 266XL Compressor/Limiter/Gate
    Crown XLS402 power amp

    I have come out of the Ashley PB41 preamp's effects loop and placed the DBX 266XL in the loop. Next, I have taken the stage level line out of the preamp into the BBE 362 and then out of the 362 to the Crown power amp input. Does this make sense and is it correct?

    Second question, my pedal board has a Loooper 2. Loop-1 feeds a Boss CEB3 and an Ibanez SB7 and Loop 2 feeds a Boss ME-50B. At this time I run my bass directly to the Loooper and it's output to the Ashley PB41 input. Would I be better off to put all of this in the effects loop or to run it the way I am now.

    Thanks for the help everyone!
