well,i have a lot of pedals,
my main setup is;
[in order]
Vox Wah
Dod Envelope filter
Boss ds-1
Danelectro flanger
MXR phase 90
and a fab echo.

my guitar sounds pretty muddy/dull,
when i play thrugh that,
but,when i hook it straight up to the amp
it sounds nice.
are the pedals affecting it?
is there a way to stop it?

It would seem that it is your pedals. Maybe cut down on them a bit?

why do u want an envolope and a wah?
also the phase and flange is unnecessary

Your DS-1 and Fab Echo arent true Bypass or Buffered bypass, so they will affect your tone. Idk about the rest, but a DS-1 does mess with your clean sound.
#6
or maybe its your danelectro and your fab pedals. those will kill your signal. take them out and tell me if its still doing it.
#7
If you have an FX loop, try putting the modulation pedals in it. It will shorten the chain at least...
Also, I've found that most wah pedals really suck your tone.

If you play with those pedals in your rig most or all of the time, try re-EQing your amp to match what you had when you went straight in.

playing by yourself is like masturbating, sure it feels great, but it's nothing compared to the real deal.

no theyre useful. i say delay is unessecary because you can make a phaser sound like a delay. especially in solos. yeah and you get a phaser. flange is nice to have, but do you really need it???

it could be your cables. buy some monsters. theyre like 15 bucks for 8 inch, but you get almost no added sound. yeah.. you gotta fork extra money if you want to use pedals. that's a sacrifice you make when you buy pedals. good patch cables are expensive. what you're paying like 80 bucks for cables for that? it's not bad at all.
