Ok, so I'm building a pedalboard, and I want to add a Boss TU-2 to it. Will it work if I run it through an effects loop? If so, will it be as accurate as if I ran it throught the front of the amp, since the guitar is plugged directly into it?

In my opinion the tuner should always be the first thing in your signal chain so it gets as pure a signal as possible, any other way and you risk inaccuracy that only gets worse as you add more effects. It'll still work, it just might read wrong.

why do you want to? just stick it in the front.


That's what she said.

Seriously, I don't have to put it through the loop, but I'd like to have it there so I don't have anything between my guitar and amp to interfere with the signal.

it's just a tuner.. not going to really do much to your signal.

and if you really wanna' stick it in the loop then just try it out.

Then if you can you should get a true-bypass tuner of some kind. I can't think of any off hand but it should only take a little bit of looking.

I can't try it out, because I don't have the amp yet. I'm gonna run it through the loop of a JSX that I am saving up for

O, well then just put it guitar>tuner>effects>amp
or you can make a AB switch, guitar<(Tuner), effects.amp
