I just bought a valveking 112 and it has an effects loop but i'm not totally sure how to use it. Do you just plug the pedal into that instead of the regular input? If someone could make a diagram or something that would help alot.

There are no rules on how to chain effects, and you don't even have to use the loop. All that loop does is insert effects into the signal chain between your Valveking's pre-amp and it's power amp. So put effects you want uncolored by the tube pre-amp in front of it in the guitar input, and effects you want to change your "base pre-amp colored tone" in the effects loop. But these are generalities, there are no hard rules. Often time based or modulation effects such as tremelo & phaser sound better in the effects loop.
