Okay guys. I'm in the planning stages of building my own pedalboard. I don't yet own all of the pedals, but I know exactly what I'll be getting within the next few months, so I'm trying to plan the layout now so that it's all ready once I get everything. My question is: What would be the proper order to have all of these pedals in my effects chain (from guitar to amp)?

-Wah Pedal
-chorus Pedal
-delay pedal
-flange pedal
-EQ Pedal
-Tremolo Pedal
-Reverb Pedal
-Talk Box
-tuning pedal

Thanks!

Guitar > tuner > wah > talk box > chorus > flanger > tremolo > delay > amp

Effects Send > Reverb > EQ> Effects Return


That's how I'd run it. But honestly, just experiment when you get them and see what you like best. There's no true proper way to run pedals.

I figured as much. Basically, the only thing that all of the articles have read have said in common is that the tuner comes first. Other than that, it's all out of whack.
Would a talkbox be considered a filter like a wah, or what? Because I haven't found info about this in any articles I've seen. It's a Rocktron Banshee, if that helps at all.

What exactly do you mean by effects send and return? I've seen that term a lot, but I've never quite understood it.

TARD-EDIT: Nevermind. I just read up on it. I feel dumb now.

Its whatever floats your boat. The only rule I really use tuner is ALWAYS first.
My Rocktron Banshee goes between the tuner and Wah. Although its not currently on my pedalboard. I need to practice more before I use it in public.

I have my tuner after my wahs for space reasons, but before anything else. you want it seeing as pure a signal as possible
