    Just wondered if anyone has tried putting the b3n in the effects loop of there amp and using the amp sims on the zoom that way
    Have just got it and love the sounds you can achieve
    Cheers in advance :)

  3. Try it, can't hurt anything.

    I've read that effects that alter time (delay) are best plugged into the loop, but using your B3n as a preamp should work ok as well.

    I'm sure many have plugged a B3n into the Return of their amp's effects loop.

  4. Most effects loops are designed for line-level rack gear not pedals.
     
  5. Some work well with pedals and MFX, some don't.
     
  6. If you want to use the amp sims, I'd run it as a preamp to the Return & not even plug into the amp's front end, otherwise the preamp of the amp itself is going to shade the overall timbre.
