    Re: How would you order the pedals of my board?

    I look at this through the Classic lens and the experimental lens. In fact, I had an experimental/looping board separate from my standard board. For experimental stuff throw all the rules out doing what gets the sounds in your head. Reverb into fuzz, etc.

    The rest of this post will concern a more “classic” approach.

    The first step is to start with your primary drive. Get it dialed into your sound with your guitar and amp. Then add your second drive. Try stacking in either direction to see which works best for your setup. Then keep adding pedals, one at a time in order of importance to you, trying it in every position. It’ll take a while, but you’ll have a board that you know completely and is the right order for you.

    Some things to think about:
    For tremolo order, on the classic Fender amps, it goes Reverb -> Tremolo, so that’s as good a starting point as any.
    For “classic” sounds I’d always want delay before tremolo, delay to thicken, then tremolo to modulate so you don’t have any odd tempo clashing from tremolo into delay. I think I like Spring Reverb into Tremolo like a classic amp, but plate/room Reverb last to emulate a recording.

    For delay order, I like Analog as a shorter slap or fattening tone and a tape for longer sounds. I like short into long, try it all ways.

    Tuner can go anywhere, do you need it to mute noisy gain pedals? (Should it go first or after drive)

    I treat wahs, filters and phasers the same, and before drive.

    Chorus and Flanger can go before or after drive for me. EVH used Flanger into amp drive and it sounded awesome. I think I prefer chorus into drive for faux-Leslie type sounds and after drive for more classic style chorus.

    In the end, I’d probably be at:
    Wah
    Tuner
    Phaser
    Klone
    Timmy
    Chorus
    Analog Delay
    Echoplex
    Tremolo
    Reverb

    Have fun exploring all the tones available!
    Oh no.....


    Oh Yeah!

      In to Out: Tuner, Compression, Wah, Overdrive, Distortion/Fuzz, Tremolo/Vibrato, Delay, Reverb. Just my opinion. I donít use a Wah, so that part is guesswork ... the rest is pretty solid.

            I'd order them online.
