Whammy's & wah near the start as well

Modulation pedals somewhere in the middle

then echo's reverbs & delays

then distortions (not fuzz factory)

Distortions after the ambients?

That's what I have found is best for me, although it does sound rather epic if you have distortion after reverbs & delay

I've tried distortions after ambients, it does sound epic. I was just thinking that having the distortion before all modulation would make a more traditional sound.

RMC Custom Wah
Digitech Whammy
Pro Co Rat 2
MXR Phase 100
Maxon OD808 Overdrive
Boss TR2 Tremolo
Boss DD7 Delay
Boss FRV Reverb
Ibanez Echo Shifter
Yeah, I have Polytune and Fuzz Factory at the start. I'm not sure if the Wah would work best before or after the Fuzz, might depends on your pedal. Personally I'd have Whammy before the distortions, so you keep the tone from the pedal instead of losing some of it in the Whammy. Then personally I go delay -> phaser -> tremolo -> reverb, but it's up to what you want from it really. Some people like modulation effects before delay and so on. If in doubt, experiment and find what works best for you.

Right, I'm getting my new amp tomorrow, since it has an FX Loop built into it I'm gonna need to change the order of my pedals and stuff, just need some advice:

Am I right in saying this is the correct order they should be in from the guitar?:

Guitar > Digitech Whammy IV > Fuzz Factory > MXR BlueBox > DS-1 Distortion > Amp
FX Loop Send > MXR Phase 90 > Line 6 DL4 > FX Loop Receive

Edit: I was thinking about putting the Bluebox in the FX Loop too since it's an octaver, but since it's a 'Fuzz' Octaver I thought it'd be best being along side the Fuzz/Distortions

FF goes before whammy, DS-1 goes in the bin

None of your pedals are designed to operate at line level so I've no idea why you'd put them in the effects loop of your amp

Line Level?
I just thought that all Phasers and Delays were meant to go into the FX Loop?
So I can just stick them all through the front of the amp in this order then?
Guitar > FF > Whammy > MXR BlueBox > MXR Phase 90 > Line 6 DL4 > Amp ?

I thought most guitar pedals are designed to operate fine whether they're in the fx loop or in front of the amp?

m8.



Actually, I've had little luck with the effects loop on amps. Delay should be okay in there but really, put them in front of your amp.

guitar pedals are designed to receive a signal at the sort of level a guitar puts out. The pre-amp in a guitar amp raises this level up to line level. Rack effects units designed for studio use etc run at this level.

But just go with whatever sounds best*, I believe morello puts his whammy in the loop? I'm not going to argue with him!

*Except the DS-1, that goes in the bin
