    Hi Guys,

    I'm new, so sorry for asking a question on my first post...

    I have a Markbass Little Tube 800 amp, and a Zoom B3 processor. My question is:

    Should I run the processor directly through the input (front of amp), or run it through the Effects Send/Return (back of amp) when using it? I don't want to damage my amp.

    I have tried both, and just not sure, as I am a dummy when it comes to this sound stuff, still. I have tried running through the effects send/return, but then the EQ on the amp is not available for when I am not using the Zoom.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Your amp can handle both, so you just need to decide which you prefer.

    In front is more likely the better option, but try both, see what YOU think.
