No, put the tuner first in your chain. You want the clearest signal going into it, which the GT and Big Muff might affect.

Tu-2 > Big Muff > GT-6B

oh ohkay =D
lol
oh btw
i want to split my signal between two amps
and i want a splitter which allows me to run both at once
what should i get?
and i don't want the whirlwind one that everyone seems to go on about because a) you have to toggle between amps (theres an A/B button and a BOTH button instead of an A and a B and a BOTH button) and b) it decreases the volume.

thanks again /kit&tab/ ;]

Only if you have a very good amp, with a good quality loop, I once tryed to do the same with a Blackstar HT-Dual in the loop, on the clean channel, and somehow it sounded more muddy than ever before...

Tu-2 > Big Muff > GT-6B

You want an A/B/Y pedal, they are pretty easy to make if you want to save some cash. There aren't many that give you all the functions on one switch though, it's usually A/B on one switch and Y on another.

Damn
yeah, I was reading into them last night and apparently if you make your own and don't do loads of grounding and other stuff then it'll suck aload of volume and create hum etcetc.
So umm what would you recommend?

Well they are not that hard to make but if you want one that wont hum or have any volume issues they can be difficult if you have no experience with electronics. Most people seem to recommend one made by Morley, have a look into that one if your not too keen on making one yourself.

I had a look at the morley one and half the people said it caused loads of hum and the other half said it was fine

Does anyone have the Morley one here?

If you don't mind spending a bit of cash then this is the way forward:

All right kids, help me out here. I need a good order.

I have:
Digitech Whammy (the red one Jack White *peace be upon him* uses.)
Boss Fuzz FZ-1
Visual Sound Route 66 Overdrive/Compression

The Route 66 is an interesting pedal, the overdrive and compression run parallel (is that the term?) to each other, so the signals don't actually mix. You if you turn up the volume on the compression, you can hear the clean, compressed signal over the top of the drive signal. I figured the compression subdued by the drive PLUS the Fuzz FZ-1 would be the easiest way to replicate Bellamy's tone... and it sort of works.

Well you've only got 3 pedals.. mess with the order and see what sounds best.

I don't use FX loops. Personal choice, plus blues juniors don't have them, I'm pretty sure Fender amps in general rarely have them also, but am no doubt completely wrong.

My current problem (in regards to distortion pedals rather than the pathetic mess that is my life) is that I have a Satchurator, a DS-2, an American metal, a Big Muff (new EHX), all have different sounds and colour my sound differently. I'm also using an EQ which has a volume boost anyway which I can use as a weakish OD and a compressor which I've been using also as a booster.

What would be the best way of setting it up you think?

Wah/EQ into some splitter to go through each different box (Like it even fucking matters at the moment) or just line 'em all up, it might affect cleans a bit if they're all off. But who cares, clean tones r 4 fags lolololol
