Hi folks, my names Ollie I live in Hereford England, Been a JVM owner for roughly half a year now, Bought a 410 full stack second hand and although I get along with it and love a lot of the tones i have found, the fx loops have been blocked off by the pervious owner so i can't run and delay or modulation effects which has limited my playing style, when googling how to reinstall the fx loop i came across this forum which is great everyone sharing knowledge and ideas.

Interesting how many of you guys mod the amp, I haven't done any mods to mine and have little desire too yet as Im still getting used to the amp, I have been thinking of buying some different cabs and speakers and a boost and EQ pedal to get the tone I'm after. I find every guitar i own reacts very different to the amp so modding it might do wonders for one channel but take away what i like about another one, I mostly use my Telecaster on clean and OD2, Strat on church and OD1, Les Paul on OD1, and my Semi hollow body on all 4.

Anyway enough on the rambling, Thanks for making me a member, Keep on rocking'.

Welcome aboard !

"the fx loops have been blocked off by the previous owner so " - does that mean the previous owner literally ripped
out the FX valve and circuitry?

Wouldnt suprise me since I ran onto information that many guitarists thinks that FX loop actually killing sound no matter if you are using it or not. smilie=icon_lol.gif
