If you don't have an fx loop on your amp,
can you use chorus,delay,reverb pedals?

I have a blackstar that has it
and a vox that does not.


Also is this ok? and where would you add a tuner pedal?

Guitar -> Wah -> OD -> Dist -> Amp


For the fx loop how would you order these?

Amp -> Chorus -> Delay -> Reverb -> Amp


Thanks.

Yeah it will work fine. My next amp will have a loop, but my Vj doesn't and it sounds great. Pedal placement is up to you and what you like best. Experiment a bit.

You probably want to put your tuner right at the beginning of your chain, right from your guitar. That way your signal is as clear as it's going to get.

using an effects loop only really matters if you're using preamp od/distortion. if you run your amp clean with an od pedal, then it's nothing to worry about.

and yeah, the orders you said are fine, although it's all about experimentation.
