I have near enough the same set up

I think it's something like:

Guitar > wah . whammy > big muff > BOSS DS-1 > chrous > delay > amp


I think :S

Any kind of gain device like distortion should come first in line I think, then you move on to modulation, like chorus or whammy...then finally you would have any echo devices...like Delay.

Also, try putting the whammy in your FX loop if you have one.

no whammy comes first in line because you want the sound to come in to the whammy to be as dry as possible. and put the wah in front of your distortion/fuzz. it will sound better that way.

well before he had all his mansons, he used to stuck his effects on his guitar [hence the tape]. so he could run about with his guitar. he hadn't actually custumized it, by putting stuff in his guitar, he just stuck it on the body of the guitar his peavey wolffgang also got some tape on the sides
now you mention it.. that piece of "fretboard".. dunno what that is

No i don't know. i never saw him play with it either on live shows [e.i. fiddling with it live], so i don't know.

back to the question at hand, i'd do it this way:

whammy -> wah -> ds1 -> muff -> chorus -> delay

if your amp has an effectsloop put the chorus and delay in there

i think driving the muff with the ds1 would sound cool, otherwise just switch them around or if you're never going to have both of them running at the same time it doesn't matter
