Talking I rig set up question

Ok, I have a Sabine Rack Tuner running to a Digitech GSP 1101, to a BBE 462 to a Yamaha Rack EQ. My power Amp choices are as follows. Peavey 6505+ straight in or through the effects loop, A Mesa Triple Rec, straight or effects, Marshall Powerbloc 9200 power amp rack mount, or a Peavey JSX, straight or effects. I love the distortion of the Mesa and the 6505, but when I use the effects it muddies it up whether its to the input or the effects loop, and the Mesa has those mix knobs which are a real pain in the ass. A hair to much in any direction and you have poo poo. What do you guys think is the best way to go. I play pretty much straight metal in a band in E tuning with a few songs in Drop D. Thanks!!

Re: I rig set up question

I have difderent but very similar rig i use as my main "clubbing" rig I will share... I run an original Peavy 5150 (so basically same amp as your 6505) with the following chain:

Guitar (or in my case Line6 g90 wireless) into amp high gain input --> amp fx out into Peterson strobe tuner --> tuner out to fx unit (Boss GT10 for me) --> fx out to BBE (882i for me) --> BBE out to amp fx return.

I have a very clear, articulate signal, no muddiness, and the amp's tone is well preserved. I use the EQ in the GT10 for some patches but not all. I usually use a Marshall 1960b cab but also have original 5150 cabs and Mesa Rec cabs so it just kinda depends on the location, the set and how "chunky" of a tone I want as far as which cab I choose.

For what it's worth...
