I have a Laney LC30 and a fair few pedals. I've tried numerous times to put some of my pedals into my amps FX loop so the signal from my guitar to my amp isn't too 'mangled' I suppose.

However, whenever I do it, the tone always degrades and I find the pedals sound much stronger in front of the amp.

I'm aware that a lot of valve amps in a similar price range have crap FX loops, but is there any way to solve the problem? Or is a new amp the only way to go?
If they sound better in front just leave them there. There's no rule that says effects have to go in the fx loop.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
^ that's what i'd do to be honest.
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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
