Hey all,

I just ordered some pedals and was wondering what order i should put these in:

DS-1 Distortion
Crybaby Wah
Turbo Flange Stereo
DD-3 Digital Delay
Chromatic Tuner

any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Normally you'd want your tuner 1st, then the Wah & distortion/overdrive. Any modulating effects like flange, chorus, phaser, delay would go last.

Dan where would you suggest a Compressor goes?

ph0nage - try toying around with the overdrive in front of and behind the wah. This can make a noticeable difference and really comes down to preference and what kind of tone you're going for. I've done setups with a distortion box before and after the wah, but for me the wah would act more like an EQ and the sounds could get rather nasty and volatile.

I'd put the compressor after the tuner & stick an EQ in between 'em! :wink:
