If you use it after your compressor, the Growler’s internal compander (comp/expander) does not have to work as hard on the signal dynamics. If you are using a compressor I would suggest placing the Growler after it.
If you are using OD and fuzz pedals mostly, then I wouldn’t use the Growler at all. IMO the harmonics from OD and fuzz pedals will dominate the effect of the Growler.
