All tubes? If so, something in the filament supply has gone bad. Take it to a tech.
I read in an interview magazine with Mark Morton (lamb of god) about his rig and he said (at the time atleast, I think this was pre-sacrament) that he uses a MXR phaser with the effect turned way low to make his solos cut through a little nicer. Its something I'm looking into myself
Why can't you stack EQs? It's pretty much the ideal solution. If not ... get a boost pedal. They make them. For this purpose. They're called boosts.
i am trying to get the tripple post gone. my computer is being stupid. ^^^
you can stack EQ's, but if you run another boost into the front end to another boost it may not be the best solution. i would think the EQ in the loop would be better.
you can stack boosts, SRV did it most of his career with TS's but he was using the first into a clean amp and the second to distort the first which was over the clean.
boost+boost+high gain may not do the best. maybe a clear boost before could help, the input but you can only tastefully put so much into the input and get ideal results.
Why doesn't the Maxon work for boosts?
What he was suggesting was to connect a cable from the send jack to the return jack of the loop - basically just to short it out - no pedals, just 1 cable from send to return. If you still have the issues with the amp setup like this then you know its an issue with the loop rather than the pedals.
It will most likely solve your problem, that tells us that its the pedals at fault, the easiest way to remedy this is to put a true bypass looper in your effects loop - this will allow you to short your effects loop at the press of a foot switch, effectively doing the same thing as the 1 cable idea mentioned above.
Oh and this has an added bonus, it means you now don't have to switch in your pedals individually if you don't want to, you can simply click in all your effects loop pedals with one hit on the T/B looper.
Are you powering your pedals with batteries? If so, the batteries in one or more of them could be going dead and sucking tone.
Also, try running just one cable plugged into the loop (plugged into the send and return) just to make sure the loop itself isn't the problem.
Oh, and I'd also recommend moving the wah in front of the amp. Perhaps the tuner as well.
Try connecting the FX loop with a single cable and see if that sucks tone too. If not, it's your pedals.
Alright so you're in drop C. Tonally I'm pretty sure your order is just fine. To be honest I would try going straight guitar -> line -> amp just to experiment. Take certain pedals out and see if they're causing some suckage out of the tone, though I honestly don't think it would be anything in your line.
I would strongly suggest checking your FX loop to make sure nothing is going haywire.
Also, this might be unrelated, but I have a friend who plays in drop C who put grover tuners on his guitar and put in a brand new nut to fit 12 gauge strings. He says it sounds way better to him, but he's probably used to the sound of his Soldano.
How do you order your line? If I were you I would go Korg -> Wah -> Delay -> Reverb
EDIT: Derped on the order and fixed it.
Random question: Which guitar cords do you use, and how long are they?
