Wah, compression, dirt pedals all tends to go in front of the amp.

Chorus, flange, delay, reverb all go in the loop normally after the amp's preamp/gain stages.

As such I'd put your Line6 tap trem and the Boss DD6 in the loop of your new amp.

But it's worth messing around and put things in different places - you might find some effects unexpectedly work better in the loop or in front of the amp - you never know until you try it.

Good luck with it

The loop basically splits your amp into two sections; the pre-amp, which has the overdrive and tone controls, and the power amp, which has the reverb and drives the speaker.

That means that any pedals in the loop will be after the amp's overdrive.

Therefore stick any pedals that you want after dirt into the amp's loop.
