Pedals in your effects loop?

Do you leave them on top of your amp or run them to your pedalboard? I feel like the long cables would annoying. is there an easier way?

i usually run them on my board. the other option, besides what you mention, is to but them in a rack mount with a switcher and remotely operate them with something like a midi switch board

I run a total of 4 cables to my board including the footswitch cable and it's not a problem at all. Plus you may wanna switch a pedal off that's in your loop without buying extra gear. I'm about to buy a 100' roll of Bullet DIY cable and make 3 cables with their solderless plugs to replace my cables going to the amp from the board. I bought a Bullet coil cable a while back for my guitar and just recently rewired my board with the Bullet Cable Slug kit and am so impressed that I've got to replace my amp cables now!
