Even if you run it thru the fx loop tho. Drives dont sound good thru the loop they need to go in the3 front. Especially if u use wah. Get a cheap power amp and just run it with that. I had my head blow on me and i used my gt-8 thru the crate power block for a gig years ago and it sounded better than i thought it would. However i did have to put my amp modeling back on to give it the push. I usually by pass any amp modeling if im going thru an amp.
