Hey guys,

I'm admittedly a complete novice when it comes to effects. For years, all I owned was a fuzz and wah pedal, which was simple enough. Recently, though, I've become interested in using more effects/sounds in my playing.

Last week I picked up a Line 6 M9 stompbox modeler with the expression pedal. I'm basically using it for all effects except distortion/overdrive (and possibly wah). Here's what I'm working with:

Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face (I run it in front of a crunching amp for that Hendrix-like sound)
Joyo Ultimate drive (for more modern/high-gain distortion than my amp can provide, or for "regular" overdrive/distortion when playing someone else's amp)
Vox V847a wah (strongly considering getting rid of this because I really like some of the wah sounds on the M9)
Line 6 M9

So what's the best order to use them in? Should I be using the effects loop on my amp (Egnater Rebel 30 112 combo)? If so, what should I do when playing through my practice amp at home (Vox AC4TV)? I feel a little lost, especially because I'm not the most technologically inclined.

Thanks guys!

If you are going to use amp distortion, I would place the M9 in the effects loop. Modulation and delay will sound clearer after the distortion (in the loop).
