Saw the other guys and thought i'd check to see if mine were in the right placee..

I'm sort of a BOSS fan as you might be able to guess..

Okayy, goes like this..

Guitar -->
>Dunlop Cry Baby
>Boss CS-3 (Compression Sustainer)
>Boss DS-2
>Boss MT-2
>Boss GE-7
>Boss DD-3
>Boss CE-5

Any ideas
Thankss..

you have way too many boss pedals
your tone will be sucked dry, and all that will be left will be some sound fog

as for the pedals, i'm not even sure what all these pedals do (i hate boss pedals names )
i'd do it this way

wah - ds2 - mt2 - EQ
and effects loop : chorus - delay - compressor

you can put your EQ last in front or first in the loop, you decide

well yeah that's my opinion

^What Darkflame said pretty much, but I'd think I'd consider this more of a matter of preference than anything, loop or in front of the amp. EXPERIMENT.

Are any of those modded at all? At least the MT-2/DS-2, they both sound like angry bees...

Effects loop? In a nutshell, it's a little plug in the back of your amp where you can plug in certain effects, basically gives you a second option of what you want to sound like with effects.

Stuff like chorus, delay, reverb, and possibly EQ would go back there.
Other stuff you'd "put in front of your amp", AKA straight in to the input jack.

Like I said though, a matter of preference where you put it.

An effects loop is where you can put certain effects pedals after the preamp, but before the poweramp of your amplifier. Usually labeled as 'send and receive' jacks on the amp. Not all amps have them. Modulation and EQ pedals are what you usually run in the loop...drive/boost/distortion pedals run out front of the amp.

General order for pedals shoud go like this (and this is just the traditional way)

1. Tone shaping like wah's, whammy's, compressors, and eq's, etc.
2. Distortion or overdrives.
3. Modulators like chourus, flangers & phasers, etc.
4. Delays.
5. Reverb.

Alright.. Well on the back of my amp i have 3 possible jacks on the amp that are possibly the right ones, but how would i go about doing it?

I have an 'Emulated Line Output' (Not sure about that one?)
An 'FX Return' Jack and an 'FX Send' Jack.

send -> first pedal in the effects loop lineup's input
return -> last pedal in the effects loop lineup's output

Alright, i'm done, it's a litlte messy though hahha.

I can't reallyyy notice much difference in the soundd to my original sound except for the compressor ,what's supposed to change?

Here's what is happeninngg, just to make sure i've got it right..

Guitar > Wah > DS-2 > MT-2 > EQ
then in the loop i've got..
Chorus > Delay > Compressor, the compressor side is going into the return and the chorus in the send.

This all correcT?

i hate these threads.....
pedal order is all up to personal preference, and there is honestly no reason why you should need to ask other people. if it sounds good to you, put it in that order. i personally change the order of my pedals every few days just to see how it sounds. i dont always like it, but at least i'm content knowing that there was an option that i didn't overlook.
but just to make sure: you're not running the ds2 and mt2 at the same time are you?

I'd only put the chorus in the FX Loop. Modulators are the only thing that should go in the loop.

And again; this is for the ranter above who switches his pedals around every few days, this is only a general rule.

after thinking about it, i'd put the delay after the compressor, because it's going to affect your delay's volume if you put it before the comp.
the ds2 is before the mt2 because you can use it as an overdrive to overdrive the can of bee and get some friggin angry bees, think bees in heat
