    Should a compressor go in the effects loop or between the bass and amp?

    I also forgot to ask about a volume pedal to. Does it matter where you put it?

    The compressor should be placed after the other effects units (between the amp and effects). Becuase it limits the signal coming from the bass through the effects to the amp limitting the effects. If it is in the middle of the effects only half will be limitted.
