Ultimate FX Loop



Granger Amplification is now offering our new high voltage, zero-loss, true-bypass effects loop in kit form. Our Ultimate Effects Loop works perfectly for most vintage Marshall, and Marshall-style amps, as well as many other modern amps, that have extra mounting space in the chassis. Our effects loop is optimized for insertion between the preamp and driver stages. Our low noise, non-clipping, analog effects loop utilizes a discrete, high voltage buffer and a return gain stage. To be the most compatible and easy-to-install effects loop available, we made the mounting requirements simple (4 wires - Power, Ground, Signal In, and Signal Out), and also features internal trim (level) pots that can be accessed directly through the jacks (no chassis removal required to adjust levels) so it doesn't require a lot of drilling for the controls. The footprint is small (3 holes), yet both the send and return levels can be adjusted for nearly any loop requirement. In factory configuration the send stage has 10dB of cut and the return stage has 16dB of gain, for a net gain of 6dB. Low cost stomp boxes work just as well as thousand dollar rackmount effect units. The Send is configured as non-interrupt, so it can be used as a Preamp/Slave Line Out. Can be easily mounted component side up (Send jack on right side), or solder/trace side up (Send on left), with power, ground, and signal terminals clearly marked on both sides. We also offer the option to have the bypass switch mounted to the circuit board (default), or included separately as a panel mount switch, if an alternate mounting location is desired (Select from the dropdown below).

This is the most versatile effects loop on the market! If you are interested in a custom configuration, just contact us!

Instructions, drilling template, wire leads, and recommended wiring examples are included. Product support is available via email.
