Im looking at looping pedals, in particular the Boss RC-2. I was wondering will it work if i add amp distortion/overdrive, or will it sound horrible? and do i need to buy a distortion pedal to put in front of the loop?
Yeah it won't sound that great, unless you're into making wierd twisted noises. Think of it like running a delay in front of a dirty amp. Of course I guess you could try it in the effects loop; I've never done this, though.
I would put it in front of the amp.

This chick that looked like shrek ****ed me while I was passed out on xanax. I screamed when I woke up.
in my personal experience (with my DL4) loops dont fair too well infront of the amp. put it through the looper.
