    I always put the compressor before gain. Gain wil add even more compression, but that's where it sounds the best to me. There are no rules about this...I say, experiment!

      what fuzzface? i ask because they dont always play well with other dirt boxes. i love my sunface but it doesnt play well with a vox overdrive i wanted to pair it with. i run it into a dls and it works great. if you dont plan to stack, then it doesnt matter

        Compression before gain unless you are insane.

        I made up that line years ago to help remind me but there are no rules and it always depends on what pedals are being used but it is "typically" a wise rule of thumb to put compression early and before gain.
        The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

          I did it that way for years, but a friend always ran his compressor after his ODs . . . and sounded great doing it. He could change the whole gain structure of the OD with his volume knob and picking dymanics but didn't have to deal with drops in volume.

Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.

            That way can work well if not using super high gain...at least in my experience. I am always on the heavy side and doing it that way for me hasn't;t been as successful as the way I initially mentioned. Everybody is different, likes different things and has different gear and all of that can change things for sure. The key is finding what can work for you and what you have and be at peace with it. (sometimes easier said than done).

              I love compression, but I do t see what that has to do with the thread.

                Did the OP ever decide on a pedal

                  Between those choices, RAT is more versatile especially if you find a modded version with different diodes, or if you get the FAT RAT which IIRC has a Silicone and FET clipping option.

                  FET or LED (Turbo RAT) will have a bigger bottom. I bet it'll be great for rhythm. Need to tighten it up? Stack the TS in front. Lead? TS again, solo or stacked. Seems like you got your bases covered.

                  However, RAT has a very particular tone so depends if that's what you want / what genres you play. Then again, that can said for the Dist+ and DS-1 too

                    I like the MXR disto+ but I voted for the DS-1 : it makes you three nice different sounds.
