Hello.

My problem is that when I play with my band I have alot of gain and volume so I get alot of noise. So Im going to describe what pedals I have and in what order and how I connect them.

Kelly KE-3 -->(in) Crybaby Wah Wah (out) --> (in) Korg (guitar tuner) (out) --> (in) Boss NS-2 (out) --> (in) Boss MT-2 (out) --> (in) Boss EQ (out) --> (in) Boss DD3 (out) --> Marshall 1959RR.

So my Marshall Amp doesnt have FX Loop slots and I dont use the "send & return" features on my Boss NS-2.

Question: How do I connect it all in the best way to reduce my noise to the fullest and keeping my Guitar Sound?

Thanks for answers!

You could try moving the NS-2 to the end of the chain, right before the amp. Works great in that spot for me. Also, are you trying to use the MT-2 as an actual distortion pedal? You'd probably get a lot of extra noise because the 1959RR doesn't have a dedicated clean channel. The distortion of the amp + MT-2 distortion = lots of noise...

And it get rid of that MT-2. Very bad pedal, that you're not going to get any good tones out of.

Common sense - your NS2 won't be able to gate anything you put after it. Put it after your MT2, as thats whats making your noise. Follow the chain posted above me, that looks like the best possible chain.

As for the MT2, its possible to get good tones out of it, its just very sensitive, and takes days to EQ well. It has beastly potential through modding though.
