Question 1:

These are the pedals I need to complete my Pedalboard (its a lot I know)

BOSS PH-3
BOSS NS-2
EHX LPB-1
Metal Muff or Big Muff, havent decided yet
EHX Small Clone
Whammy IV

Which should I buy first?

I play lots of Metal and some neoclassical.


Question 2:

What does the BBE Sonic stomp do?

On guitarcenter.com it says it "cleans your tone"

Does this mean its a noise gate? I don't really understand from the description.
My Setup

I'm not sure about first, but I'd hold off on the NS-2 til last, and everyone else will tell you to get a decimator. I'd put the whammy near the end too. Take care of setting up your pure tone, then add the crazy ****.

the sonic maximizer is a beefed up clean boost

what amp do you have? what pedals do you already own?


Well my sig shows my pedals.

But I currently have a Fender Champ 110

I believe It has been discontinued.

What are some examples? I didn't really like the Phase 90 when I tried it.

Well if you didnt like the Phase 90 Im guessing you would rather a digital over an analog.

You could try a Digitech phaser, or the Ibanez phaser. Both are cheaper, but its all about what you like the best.

Add the chorus first. It will add to your clean tone, your lead metal solo tone, and your neoclassical shred tone. It's great for any tone.

Fender Highway One HSS Strat
Art & Lutherie Cedar Acoustic

No amp ... Help me find an amp

Metal muff or the whammy first...then the small clone. All three are great pedals...

BOSS PH-3I owned one, I would go for a phase 90 instead.
BOSS NS-2ISP Decimator is better.
EHX LPB-1Good choice.
Metal Muff or Big Muff, havent decided yet COMPLETELY different beasts, if you have a good amp you won't need the metal muff, but if you don't have a usable overdrive channel on your amp I would suggest getting a new amp first. The Big Muff is awesome for that 90's Alternative sound, but at high volumes mine was pretty midless and you couldn't hear it at all.
EHX Small CloneGreat choice.
Whammy IVNot much of a whammy guy, so I don't know.

Which should I buy first?

I play lots of Metal and some neoclassical.


Question 2:

I think the Sonic Stomp is like an overdrive, and overdrives usually tighten up your overdrive channel. Just wondering but what amp do you have?

Edit: If you play mostly metal and neoclassical than I HIGHLY suggest getting a new amp, you don't want to depend on a metal distortion pedal for a high percentage of your tone. If you want your tone to be good that is.

right Metallica is a given. Personally I like to pretend the bus exploded and killed them all in '86.

still try the boss ph-3 before outruling it just cause someone told you it's bad. i have it and think it's great. try the digitech hyper phase and the ehx small clone (it's analog, i know)
