I've been switching back and forth, putting effects pedals before the amp input or running the effects loop from the amp through them.. thinking I like the effects loop better, but which do y'all prefer and why? Also, I've been using an EH Holy Stain for tremolo and a tad bit of dirt with a volume boost. I like the sound of it a lot, but I realize it's made for guitar. Having never owned a bass-specific fuzz or tremolo pedal, think I'll notice enough difference to warrant getting one? I just want the tiniest bit of grit to it, more interested in the volume boost for solos.
