If it's clean I'm sure you'd be alright, it's better to put the tuner before any gain stages though.

well here let me explain the situation better

i run my wha and distortion pedals (basically anything that boosts the level) directly through the signal. everything else runs into the effects loop. all the pedals run through the loop of a Boss NS-2 which then goes into the loop of the amp. i want to see if i can get a Boss TU-2 so i can use it as a tuner and also a master mute. but whats the point if it won't tune in the effects loop? and i don't want to run it through the signal because my wha and distortion run on 9V batteries and Boss pedals SUCK when it comes to battery life (the NS-2 acts at the power supply for the pedals in the amp loop because i don't have to stretch the daisy chain cord too far)

so any suggestions would be appreciated

(whoo took a lot out of me explaining that)

no a TU-2 will not work as a mute in the FX loop the signal is too amplified to get stopped by the buffer

If your amp is clean or you're using the clean channel then it'll be able to track pretty accurately, but being in front of gain, even one that's not overdriving the signal, still raises the possibility of hampering tracking.

Since the mute idea apparently won't work you're probably best sticking the tuner right at the beginning of your signal chain.
