Hi. I’ve the following pedals. Three have yet to arrive. Been having a great time playing
the pedals. In general, pedals are new to me, so I’ve researched how some guitarists
place their chain BEFORE the amplifier. None of my amps have an effects FX loop.

Below, I share four different researched pedal chains that seem good.
They all seem a bit different. I know it’s ultimately my choice to set the chain
for my desirable tones/sounds. But, I’d like to know what you think of the
chain line-ups below. Maybe share your chain and why you made your choices.

My chain is not set for final gig prep, still have some to arrive, but I'm
ready to experiment towards what other UG members have enjoyed.
I can easily move pedals around. Thanks.


*** Stratocaster or Telecaster guitar to:
* Korg GT-120 Tuner with VU Meter
* Dunlop GCB95 Crybaby WahWah expression pedal
* DigiTech Hardwire CM-2 Overdrive Pedal
* MXR M-115 Distortion III Pedal
* MXR MC-401 Line Boost/Line Driver Pedal
* Boss TR-2 Tremolo Pedal
* DigiTech Hardwire DL-8 Echo/Slapback Delay Pedal
* Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor
* 1974 DeArmond 1602 expression volume pedal
*** 1960 Fender Super Amp, 1954 Fender Bassman, 1964 Fender Super Reverb,
or 1968 Showman Reverb amp head or 1968 Bandmaster Reverb amp head

My questions are:
1) Do you prefer to place the Noise Suppressor at the chain’s end
to catch all noise before the amp. Good or bad idea?
2) I can easily remove the DeArmond Volume expression pedal. Just wanted a bit more control of the volume with the DeArmond ~ to be used for different reasons than the explosive boost pedal.
3) Do you prefer Overdrive before or after Distortion?
4) Do you prefer Tremolo before or after Delay?


Researched pedal chain examples:
Example #1 =========
Guitar
Tuner
Wah pedals, auto-wahs, envelope filters, and (sometimes) phaser pedals
Compressors
Distortion/Overdrive/Fuzz
EQ
Pitch-shifting
Modulation: choruses, flangers, and (sometimes) phasers
Volume/Boost
Delay
Reverb
Noise Suppressor
Amplifier

Example #2 ==========
Guitar
Tuner
Signal conditioners - preamp, overdrive, boost, distortion, fuzz and compressor pedals.
Filter effects - wahwah, envelope filter, and EQ pedals.
Volume/Level/Boost - volume, tremolo, noise gate pedals ~ maybe compressor
Modulation effects - chorus, flanger, phase shifting, and rotary simulating pedals ~ maybe vibrato
Pitch effects - octave and pitch shifting pedals, whammy, vibrato
Echo/Delay time-based effects - delay, reverb, and echo pedals
Amplifier

Example #3 ==========
Guitar> Wah> Compressor> Overdrive> Chorus> Delay> Reverb> Amplifier

Example #4 ==========
Guitar
Wah
Compressor
Overdrive Options
Overdrive into (A) front end of clean amp for light overdrive.
Overdrive into (B) front end of a distorted amp for searing leads.
Overdrive into (C) a distortion pedal for searing leads.
Modulation Based Effects - Chorus, Flange, Phaser
Time Based Effects - Reverb, Echo, Tremolo & Delay typically come AFTER everything
Noise Suppression/Reduction
Amplifier

Figure it out yourself, its all preference in the end.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Q:1) Do you prefer to place the Noise Suppressor at the chain’s end
to catch all noise before the amp. Good or bad idea?
A:Personally, I'd put it after the dirt because it can choke volume and time+modulation effects UNLESS you have an extremely noisy pedal that really needs it, but then I'd find a spare cheap one and set it for really light clamping in a loop for that pedal only.

Q:2) I can easily remove the DeArmond Volume expression pedal. Just wanted a bit more control of the volume with the DeArmond ~ to be used for different reasons than the explosive boost pedal.
A:If you want the DeArmond to act like a master volume for the guitar itself, put it after your tuner and way; if you want it to control overall volume set it before or after the tremolo.

Q:3) Do you prefer Overdrive before or after Distortion?
A:I use multiple overdrives and fuzzes, which I normally chain=EHX germ 4 muff (dual pedal-fuzz into overdrive)>NYC Big Muff Pi>Ibanez TS9 or Dano Daddy-O. So mine's all over the place, but really try both and see what you like. Another thing, with the boost you can run it BEFORE your dirts to use it to add gain, and AFTER to use as a volume boost.

Q:4) Do you prefer Tremolo before or after Delay?
A:For slapback I put trem before because the slapback is supposed to replicate the short delay of an empty room, similar to reverb but with less washyness.
For long or multiple repeat delay, I use trem after but really it's just preference, "do you want to delay the trem swells or pulsate the delay repeats?" kind of thing.

Personally, I would setup those pedals:

Guitar
Tuner
Wah (get that thing true bypassed or set the line driver after it and leave it on to clear up the signal from the wah's bypass)
"Boost pos 1" (as line driver after wah)
Distortion
Drive
Noise Suppressor
"Boost pos 2" (to boost level for solos solos)
Tremolo
Slapback Echo (I always leave mine on, set lightly, for a bit of color)
Amp


I would forgoe the volume pedal but if you want to use it I would put it after the wah for general use or after the dirts for violin/cello swell effects.

I always use my effects through the front because I don't care for the extra setup needed with running effects through the loop. FYI the only effects that should ever be run through the effects loop are Delays and trem, gain effects (drive, dirt, fuzz) sound terrible through the loop because it puts them after the preamp. If you ever get a phaser, I'd recommend putting it before your gain effects, It's one of the few modulation effects that sound best before.

BTW I went and looked at a couple of your old threads, if you want help you'd be best off showing respect to members until they mistreat you. If they give you problems then by all means fire away, but don't go creating problems or you will not find your time on here enjoyable.

Thanks very much, Tukk04. Have taken notes. Appreciated.
Will be playing with all kinds of chain order of pedals.
Obviously will do what I like.
But, after research from a variety of professional sources,
the above four examples show even experienced pros
enjoy various & different opinions towards pedal chain orders
There ideas at is great to know.
Some go by the theory: Guitar - tuner - distortion - boost - delays - amps.

Again, I ask what other members use and why?

Sorry, you may have mis-read previous posts.
No big deal. Another point of view. Mostly,
do more research first, as questions later. All is good.
Take care. Toppscore

tl;dr

You don't need three posts to respond, it can all be fit within one post.
#9
Yes to anyone who states I can plug and play ~
do what sounds best ~ that's quite obvious.
But, I listed four examples from published pros
within the original post that have different strategies.


I'd like to read from GU members about their strategies and concepts
about where you place the BELOW THREE pedals ~ and why? Thank you.



My main questions are more about three pedals: 1) wahwah placement,
2) volume/boost/amplification placement and 3) noise suppression pedal.
I've taken time to research these three and have reviewed different published
shared ideas and strategies from other sources ~ some are within the first post.


Who likes the boost pedal BEFORE all pedals?
Who likes the boost pedal AFTER the distortion pedals and BEFORE the time delay type pedals?
Who likes the boost pedal as the last pedal before the amp?
. . . . . and why?

To me, it makes "sense" that the MXR-NS-2 Noise Reduction
Suppressor is the last pedal to clean-up the entire
chain from guitar thru pedals. Yes, some have suggested
the noise suppressor be first or middle of the chain.
Why would anyone NOT DESIRE the NS as the last pedal before the amp?

Where do you place your wahwah pedal?
Early as the first pedal from the guitar?
Last, after the entire chain?
Right after the distortion pedals?
I have researched and seen it placed in a variety of positions.
Why do you like where you place your wah pedal?

Thanks for sharing your ideas and your strategies. Toppscore

3) Do you prefer Overdrive before or after Distortion?
4) Do you prefer Tremolo before or after Delay?

1: It depends on the pedal being used. Apparently you don't know whether you're using a MXR pedal or a Boss pedal, because there's no such thing as an 'MXR NS-2'. There's the Boss NS-2 and MXR make the Smart Gate and the Noise Clamp.
You place your noise pedals wherever they are needed most. You usually place them before other pedals so it kills as much excess noise before other pedals get the chance to amplify it. The Boss NS-2 and MXR Noise Clamp feature loops so you run the guitar's signal into the first input, this then goes out of the first output to your other pedals which then lead back to the noise pedal's second input and finally the second output goes on to your amp.

2: Pedals that effect volume (volume, tremolo, boosts, compression, EQ and overdrive) can go anywhere, depending on the effect you want to produce. If you simply want things to control the level of your guitar's signal (e.g. volume pedal to control the guitar's output), they have to come first. If you want to control everything (e.g. tremolo your distortion without changing the intensity fo the distortion), they go last. There's rarely any benefit to sticking these things randomly in the middle.

3: Overdrives always go before distortion. Overdrives are a form of boost; distortion is for replacing your amp's clipping, essentially working as an additional amp channel.

4: You probably wouldn't ever use both delay and tremolo together, so it doesn't matter where you put them. Typically, delay goes last in your chain anyway (excluding reverb).


Personally, I'd go:

Tuner
Noise gate with loop:
- Line boost
- Overdrive
- Distortion
Back in to noise gate
Wah
Tremolo
Volume
Delay

Though I'd be tempted to put the wah before the gate, depending on how much the noise increases.

Thanks for sharing your personal chain line-up and reasons for.

I have the Hardwire DL-8 delay specifically for slapback, tape delay & echo type effects.
Gotta say this pedal is outstanding!!!

The tremolo is for my Fender amps without vibrato. Most of my amps have reverb
except the 1954 4x10 Bassman & 1960 Super Amp. Some amps have the Fender Vibrato
system. This Boss TR-2 Tremolo produces awesome trem tones through my Bassman.

Interesting comment about the early noise gate and loop back.
I am guessing those are your noisy pedals. Definitely will try this out.
Much appreciated

I only use distortion, OD, and fuzz pedals. Since I got my new amp I don't even use the distortion much.

Guitar-OD-LSTR fuzz-lavender head fuzz-amp. I only use the OD as an OD, not a boost or to tighten up amp distortion.

I sometimes use my hardwire delay, but that is always run through the FX loop.

this one is simple and i only use it on my clean amps. neither have effects loops. this goes with my clean amps. the reason i have delay in front of the amp is because i am not using any gain from the amps, just the pedals.

As you clearly stated in your initial post, pedal order is a matter of opinion and these thread always get closed.

Reported

In all seriousness, I think you need to sell everything and start over in your gear search. Your amps are not good for what you want to play. A Fender Frontman would fit much better.

2) SKB PS-55 Pedalboard ~ massively powered for pedals.
Specifications:
•Two 1.3 amp VAC jacks for powering pedals from Digitech (Whammy, Brian May, Jimi Hendrix, etc.) and Line 6 (DL4, etc.)
•Two variable* DC jacks to allow any voltage from 4 - 12 VDC (simulate an "almost" dead battery)
•Four standard 9 VDC jacks (Boss, Electro-Harmonix, etc.)
•An 18 VDC jack (MXR EVH Flanger, etc.)
•A 24 VDC jack (boutique, vintage pedals, etc.)
•Two 9/12 VDC jacks (more boutique, vintage pedals, etc.)
•All DC jacks have polarity switches (center negative, center positive, no problem)
•All power outputs are complete isolated (some pedals will only work if they are on an isolated power circuit)
•Power is also filtered, regulated and short circuit protected
•Built-in cable tester (having trouble putting together your George L cables?)
•Built-in headphone amp (warm up in the hotel room before you hit the stage...)
•Built-in buffered preamp (long cable runs, different pickup types, etc.)
•Built-in cable management (no need to disassemble your board in order to route cables)
•Angled mounting surface (easier to reach all your pedals)
•True Stereo Setup (route pedals to the front AND effects loops of 2 different amps!)
•Detachable Mains power cord with 115/230 VAC power supply (ready for world travel)
•Comes complete with pedal power cables
•Hard cover (to protect all your "prized possessions")
•MILLION MILE GUARANTY (on the case, 5 years on the electronics)


3) Thanks. I do understand how others "do it" is not the end-all. My goal is to
chat and discuss what other UG members do and why, kind of the fun of this forum.

No matter, I'm already messing around with the wah in front,
the 1972 DeArmond 1602 Volume expression pedal at last.

Today's newly arrived MXR MC-401 Super Clean Boost ~ "MXR joined forces with Custom Audio Electronics CAE founder Bob Bradshaw to bring you the MC-401 Boost Pedal. Cleans up nicely when you roll back your guitar volume, making it extremely responsive to picking dynamics without thinning your tone. The solution for mismatched line level and signal problems that may occur when combining effects. Restores sparkle, punch and brilliance. Use as an ultra- clean boost for solos."

My plan is for the MXR MC401 to be somewhere in the middle of the pedals.

Will have overdrive and distortion before the MC401 Booster
and will have the Tremolo pedal, Delay pedal and the Boss NS2 noise suppressor
after the MC401 ~ anyway, this is the first starting point.

My interesting little project is to have overall volume controlled lastly
by the DeArmond 1602 volume expression pedal ~ see if I like it at all.

My second interesting little project is to figure out how "nicely" to mount the Crybaby wah
"and" the DeArmond expression volume to my powered SKB PS-55 Pedalboard.

Thought about using clean signal to a Metal Distortion switch,
kind of an all metal or all clean. I have the:
* Digitech Hardwire CM-2 Tube Overdrive
* MXR M-115 Distortion III Overdrive/Distortion
to mess around with distortion possibilities.
Have you used either of these?
What do you have before and after your Boss MT-2?

i run my guitar into a wah, boost and OD, then i send it to a A/B/Y

output A goes to my CEC Brigand with a PPC212 loaded with eminence speakers.

output B goes to my presonus interface, i send an output from presonus to a mixer. the mixer has it's own stereo effects loops so i can blend wet/dry guitar signal from the mixer. that chain looks like

mixer send -> MF107 -> vibe -> MF102 -> HOG -> chorus ->MF105-> MF101 -> reverb -> st. delay -> st phaser -> mixer receive

then i send the mixer signal back to the presonus and send another signal from the presonus out to the Alesis Quadraverb, Rane EQ and Rane Compressor/Limiter/Gate. this signal gets get returned back to the presonus.

one more signal is sent out to my i2M usb midi interface. it converts my guitar signal to midi signals, so i run this signal out to some software and send the audio back to the presonus. this signal is sent out to the PA

yet another set of sends is sent out to two more guitar amps (THD bivalve with a 1x12 and a JTM45 clone into a PPC212).

this allows me normal straight up guitar tones plus a stereo guitar/synth effects rig with a midi setup built in. i mix and send most of the signals through my firewire interface.

no man, line 6 spider.
then he wont have to buy fx.



I have the Line-6 Pod Pro 2.0 Rackmount and
Line-6 Pod floorboard with two expression pedals.
This setup is more for modeling experimentation in the
home music room. Different subject ~ different reasons.

Would never get a Line-6 amp. Mostly simply enjoy vintage Fender amps.
Before all of these current pedal & modeling effects search,
I ONLY used 1962 & 1965 Fender Reverb Tank units for effects
as well as the Fender amps' reverb and Fender amps' vibrato channels.
That was it, until the past couple of months

Take care

This guy needs an Axe Fx. Maybe 2.

Do you use Axe FX ABOVE your neck or below your G-String line???

i run my guitar into a wah, boost and OD, then i send it to a A/B/Y

output A goes to my CEC Brigand with a PPC212 loaded with eminence speakers.

output B goes to my presonus interface, i send an output from presonus to a mixer. the mixer has it's own stereo effects loops so i can blend wet/dry guitar signal from the mixer. that chain looks like

mixer send -> MF107 -> vibe -> MF102 -> HOG -> chorus ->MF105-> MF101 -> reverb -> st. delay -> st phaser -> mixer receive

then i send the mixer signal back to the presonus and send another signal from the presonus out to the Alesis Quadraverb, Rane EQ and Rane Compressor/Limiter/Gate. this signal gets get returned back to the presonus.

one more signal is sent out to my i2M usb midi interface. it converts my guitar signal to midi signals, so i run this signal out to some software and send the audio back to the presonus. this signal is sent out to the PA

Thanks a million. I was thinking about an ABY box for the simple direct guitar output
into the beautiful vintage Fender amps ~ as that's what they're designed for.

I've both Fender 410 4x10 Bassman and Fender 114 1x15 speaker cabinets to generally
absorb the fun loud distortion music. The pedals are mostly for these two speaker cabinets
from my Bandmaster Reverb & Showman Reverb amp heads.

I'll be messin' around with the Tremolo, Slap/Echo Delay, Noise Suppressor
wahs and volume/boost with some of the vintage Fender combo amplifiers.


Which ABY box do you recommend? Some are so small that they use jacks
for various input and or output chores. I sent one back last month.
What is your opinion or recommendation for great medium priced ABY boxes?

Thanks. Toppscore

You use more smileys than my grandma. And that is saying quite a bit. Also, what in the world are you talking about?
