    Send/output of the effects loop to the input of the blue tube. Output of the blue tube to the Return/input of the effects loop.

    If your effects loop has a pre or post switch, set it to pre so your blue tube is inline before the amps EQ, compressor, etc.

    If your effects loop has a blend knob (dry amp vs. effects loop mix/output) set it all the way to effects/loop/wet (whatever its marked).
