Pedal board (w/tuner) in FX loop?

    Hopefully one of the simplest questions, but...

    I've got an active Bass, Fender Rumble 500 (Combo), and a pedal board consisting of:

    TU-3 Tuner -> MXR Compressor -> DS-1 Distortion.

    So far I've had this all going in the main INPUT on the amp, but then remembered the amp has an FX OUT/RETURN.

    Would this be fine with the tuner? or does that still ideally want to be the very first thing the bass goes into?

  2. Try it.

    You could find it is too hot for the pedals and you get a lot of distortion. Or it might be fine.
