Hey All,

I've asked this question before but haven't really got any replies so I'll ask again. I was wondering if anyone could give their opinions regarding where a Chorus pedal would go in my effects loop. I recently bought a Digitech CF-7 Chorus Factory, and I also have the following:

Boss DD7 Digital Delay
Boss BF3 Flanger
Ibanez Tube Screamer
Korg Pitchblack Tuner

I was thinking that the CF-7 goes in-between the Flanger & the Tube Screamer, but I just might be wrong so I decided to ask you guys on this forum instead. I'm sure most of you will tell me 'whatever sounds good to you', but I still want to know where YOU would put it.

Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

Well generally the tuner and TS wouldn't go in the loop, they'd go in the chain before the amp; the chorus, flanger and delay would go in the loop.

I'd probably go flanger > chorus > delay.
Or if I put everything in a straight chain: tuner > TS > flanger > chorus > delay.

Typically, stomp boxes are designed to go in front of the amp - not in the loop. Loops are more for rack mount fx units.

I would put them all between the guitar and the amp in the following order:

Tuner - (tube screamer) - flanger - chorus - delay.

The ts is in parentheses because it's really just a matter of personal taste whether you put it at the beginning or end of your chain.

The usual way of doing this is Tuner> Overdrive > Amp> {fx loop} Chorus > Delay> amp.

This is because modulation and time effects usually sound better after the distortion, and overdrives are usually used to boost pre amp distortion. However, I run a chorus in front of my amp and it sounds great, even with distortion, just sounds different.
