I had heard that the spider IV series does not play well with other effects pedals (no effects loop on the amp). Being the huge Lynch fan that I am, I didn't want to forsake some good Lynch tones I have because my spider IV 75w combo might not work with it well. Long story short, I put the amp in manual mode, clean red, eqs at 5, and plugged in a Zoom G2G Mr Scary box in front of it. And man, it sounded awesome!!! So much so that it almost made some the stock spider IV presets kinda sterile sounding. Blazed away for a while, turned the amp off, un hooked the Zoom pedal turned the amp back on and everything was fine. Just thought someone might find this helpful.
Spider Iv And Outside Effects Boxes

As you have found out, there are no inherent issues in using stmpboxes with Spider IV amps! However, certain effects (internal or external) don't work well together, such as WAH and distortion.
