Hi All, I've been on this forum for a while now andd was hoping some of you might be able to answer a question for me regarding running effect pedals to my amp. I've never been big on pedals. In the past I've owned two (at the most) at the same time (normally a chorus and EQ). I was in my local guitar store and finally tried an MXR M80 and MXR envelope filter. I was floored by the M80; not just with the effect and the distortion channel; but more about what happened to my tone and the whole "Why haven't I tried one of these sooner" thoughts. Anyway, I have a Carvin BX500 that has a tube preamp and an effects loop. Do I run the M80 through the front or would I run it through the effects loop? Thanks all.
