Hey There,

I was wondering if anyone here puts the Tuner after their Wah? I keep my Tuner on the board but my Wah stays on the floor due to space issues. I know most say that the Tuner should always be forst to get the best signal but I've been running my Korg Pitchblack right after my Vox Wah and there doesn't appear to be any issues with accuracy concerning the Tuner. (At least, not so far! hehe)

Any thoughts? I guess I'm asking if anyone else does this and if I can expect any problems with putting things this way.

where ever the hell you want, but just no the later in the chain you put it the more effects you have to worry about turning off so the tuner gets the clearest signal.

I have mine first after wah (when i use wah anyway)

no problems, might very slightly change the sound... but this will be minimal. why not try it each way and see if there is a discernible difference in tone?

but yeah, the tuner should still work fine before or after.

My thoughts for my board are that I want the tuner right after the guitar so that there is no noise that could throw the tuner off, or make it harder for the tuner to pickup the guitar signal... For accuracy and speed..

BUT... if your wah is a True Bypass pedal, then as long as it's not on while you're tuning, it shouldn't be an issue...

+1. I'm not sure why anyone would put it anywhere else but right after your guitar.

I've heard people at BOSS saying to put their tuner before any other pedals because it would act as a buffer. I don't know if this is true for other tuners, but it is for the BOSS TU series.

so Amp>tuner>other effects>guitar.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

I know. It just seems so logical to put it first. But my Tuner is more a part of my board than my Wah is. I sometimes use Wah, but I use my Tuner more often. So I just wanted to make sure the setup works, even if it's not ideal.

I believe the Korg Pitchblack is TB, but I may be wrong...

Run it first. Use it as a kill switch for your entire rig.

Ah, but the Wah won't fit on my board hence my dilemma...

Eh. The wah doesn't change the pitch even when it's engaged, plus it's the only pedal before the tuner. Unless the wah's ruining your signal to begin with via noise, its effect on the tuner's likely negligible to nil. If you really want to get down to it, as a 1-minute experiment, tune it with the wah in front, then plug in directly to the tuner. If there's no change, you're good to go.

if all your pedals won't fit on your board... well... you need a bigger board... or perhaps reorganize the old one...
