I have a LOT of gear. I am looking for suggestions for how to set up my pedals (i.e. which distortions to place where in my chain to maximize the effects...

Here are the pedals that I am currently using:

Ibanez TS-9 Tube Screamer (reissue w/no-mods)
Boss DS-1 (no mods)
Digitech Hot Head
Danelectro Fab Tone
Boss TU-2
Boss CE-5
Westbury Analog Echo
Digitech Hyper Phase
Dunlop CryBaby
DunlopTalk Box
Boss FM-50
Danelectro Tuna Melt tremolo (a real tone sucker, but it works)

I will be using two amps:
1963 Fender Deluxe Reverb (mainly for clean tones)
1984 Marshall JCM 800 2x12" 50w Combo

And two guitars:
1996 Fender Mexican Strat
2005 Godin Exit 22


So, I pose the question... what order and why?

Oh, and I play mostly modern rock in the vain of Foo Fighters, Athenaeum and the Gin Blossoms.
'96 Fender Mexi-Strat
'84 Marshall JCM 800 2x12

Ibanez TS-9

Digitech HotHead
Dunlop CryBaby
DigiTech Hyper Phase
Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble
Boss TU-2 Tuner
Westbury Analog Echo

plus more to add later!

The talkbox won't be in the loop. The amp signal passes through the talkbox instead of the speakers, so maybe I shouldn't have listed that...

The HotHead is only an okay pedal... I am looking for something to replace it with right now... same for the TunaMelt and the FabTone (which will soon be replaced with a Big Muff).
