I know there's been some really helpful threads on this but I'd like some more input. Need some help with the order. Here's what I have...

Ibanez WD7 Wah
Boss CS3 Compression
Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer
Metal Muff distortion
Boss BD2 Blues Driver
Boss PS5 Super Shifter
MXR Phase 90

I just ordered the Blues Driver and haven't used it yet. Is it a lot different from the TS9? I just wanted a different distortion because the Metal Muff is so crazy. Thanks.

wah-od-dist.-modulation. usualy how it would go. im not sure about the compression as i havent had one or ever used one.
#3
Wah - gain based effects - modulation effects - then time based effects

And yes, the TS9 is for overdriving tube amps and the blues driver is good for Solid State amps, not sure about tubes. I hear its the "next best thing".
I don't believe in signatures. Ah, sh...

I originally had my Crybaby at the front end of my signal chain, but I was never quite satisfied with the range of tone it had with the distortion pedals after it. I ended up putting the wah last, and now I really like the way it effects the distortion and overdrive.

Well, in my opinion, that's just too much ****.

Are you playing live with this rig? If so, it's just too many pedals to be reliable gig after gig, not to mention the amount of tap dancing you'll have to do.

I'd also heavily recommend a noise suppressor. Especially with the metal muff, if your playing at any sort of loud volume, you should have a bunch of feedback. The Boss NS-2 is always the way to go, and make sure to use the send and return jacks for the best results, you can also get the power supply and linking cable to power all your pedals using one socket.

Also, what kind of amp are you using?

As for pedal order, your probably right to put the wah first, I'm pretty sure that's the best way to use it. As for the other stuff, just experiment and move them all around. Think in terms of what each pedal does to the guitar signal, like if you want the tone to be compressed before or after going through the metal muff or tube screamer.

I'm just a firm believer in using the amp's distortion, shaping it with an eq pedal, and keeping it tight with a noise suppressor. The more pedals you have, the more pedals that can stop working on you mid gig and **** up your whole night.

That's what tools such as the RG-16 + Ground Control Pro are for.

what if he needs them? I have 11 pedals and I use them all at my gigs because I do need them all to shape my tone, I couldn't play without my delay, my flanger, my phaser, my chorus and everything since I always have a few of them turned on.
sure, if one stops working it will ruin everything, but not having it will ruin the sound =)
