Effects loop

Pedals- ht dist,ht boost,boss chorus and nux delay. I've tried every possible combination of effects thru the loop and I still get a really nasty hum. I've tried a boss noise surpressor and a ground loop eliminator but still this horrible buzz. All pedals have been tried with separate power supply's and also tried with a caline isolated power supply. Could anyone shine a light on this plz as I'm at my wits end with it,even considering getting a Marshall 5watt instead as I only use it for recording. Someone(the owner of leech amplifiers)suggested cutting the earth wires in the effects loop itself but I'm loathed to do this.

Did you try the button that adjusts the level in the effects loop? It should be on the low setting for those kinds of pedals.

Also try running a pedal on battery power. If the hum goes away you might have some sort of power supply or grounding issue.
