if i usea boost pedal on my pedal board, and I want to keep my amp as clean as possible. Will it stay cleaner if i put the boost pedal closer to the begining or end of my chain of pedals?
it wouldn't really matter...
clean boost, or OD boost (tubescreamer, bad monkey,etc)?
It will still be adding the same amount of gain to your signal no matter where it is placed in the chain.
