BBE Sonic Stomp & a buffer?

I'll be running a Sonic Stomp at the end of my effects chain (don't have an effects loop on my amp), and as I have a number of true bypass pedals in front of it, I'm thinking I'll need a buffer at the end of my signal chain (my TLE Ethos is at the front of the chain, so that should be good enough for an initial buffer). My question is: should the buffer go immediately before or after the BBE Sonic Stomp?

Thanks,

Why would you run it through the effects loop? I heard it's supposed to be through the front.

It doesn't matter much where you put the buffer.
However, the sonic stomp really makes a bigger difference in the loop compared to in front of an amp.

Well, until I save up enough for a Hot Rod Deluxe I'm stuck without an effects loop. I guess I'll just experiment with the buffer placement until I hear anything definitive. Thanks.

I never heard an improvement running one out in front of my AC30 and I usually have signal going through 10+ pedals.

It would seem to me that putting the buffer in the beginning would be the way to go. I know it doesn't matter where and some people even like them in the middle of the chain. I do recommend looking at TGPer This1smyne, as he builds some extremely tiny buffers with or without LEDs for a very reasonable price.
