SWR Effects Blend control

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by david_l_perry, May 21, 2003.

  1. I have an SM900 bass amp but dont use the effects send/returns.
    Howevor....the effects blend control causes the volume to drop (only slightly) unless left in the mid position (12 o'clock)
    I Cant understand why it has any effect at all if there is nothing in the effects loop

    Any body any ideas ?:meh:

    The loop on my Baby Blues works exactly as you would expect: nothing plugged into the return jack, it has no effect. I can also pull it out to disengage it if something IS plugged in.

    Time to call SWR tech support :D
