Hey, I was wondering about placement of some effects. I'm running basic setup of compressor, overdrive, delay, reverb, amp and I know that the comp and OD go ahead of the amp, and the delay and reverb go in the fx loop where possible.

What I'm actually wondering is if I have a half stack, is it better to have the delay and reverb in an fx loop, or between the amp output and cabinet. Is it even possible, or is a signal the output side of the power amp going to blow the circuits in my pedals? If it is possible how much difference does it make? Because if I'm looking to get an amp without an fx loop it opens my options a bit.

I hope I made that clear enough to understand... thanks for any comments.
