I have a Decimator pedal and was wondering if I should put it in the effects loop rather than in front?

thanks

Yup, put it right at the end of your chain, in the loop

Haven't personally tried it in the loop, but everyone seems to go with it in the front. I have mine in the front and it works great so I've never tried it in the loop.

I know people who say it works best in front and others say that it works best in the FX loop, so try it in both and see what you think

It depends on what kind of feeback your trying to get rid of.If your trying to get rid of amp feedback and hum, put it in the effects loop. If your trying to get rid of feedback and hum from your effect pedals in front of the amp and your guitar. Put it at the end of your chain in front of hte amp.

^ agreed, but i have no pedals in front of my amp, and still think it sounds best in front of my amp. i guess the simplest thing to do is try both, as yngwi3 says.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Yeah I run it in front of mine when I use it (really don't need it with my Mark IV), it just didn't seem to do as much in the loop for me *shrug*

from what i remember, it killed more noise in the loop, but didn't sound as natural and cut more sustain. my guess is (having not been able to try it both places at once) if you could cut all the noise in front, so that that noise didn't have to be cut in the fx loop, it'd work well in the loop too. but you'd either need two decimators for that, the rackmount version, or the new decimator g-string.

He doesnt know what the fuck he is talking about. Stop bragging about your Mark quattro. (hahaha)

There aren't too many possibilities. FRONT or END in front of the amp. FRONT or END of chain in the loop. Just try them all.

So what are you actually running? (guitar, effects, amp channel). Let us know what worked best for later references.
