    Does anybody have any advice on how to put in order these pedals in a chain? I have used them individually but I am going to be placing them on the pedal board and hopefully get great results with the right combination. Any feedback would greatly help.

    I like the results I get by grouping pedals in the following order:

    Tuner-> synths/filters-> fuzz/overdrives-> modulation/delay-> compressor

    So with your pedals I would start out with

    Tuner-> pog-> filter-> synth-> bass driver-> whammy-> phaser-> chorus-> compressor and adjust to taste from there.

    That's a great path to start out with. I would also add that you shouldn't be afraid to rearrange and experiment. Spend an afternoon fiddling with settings and orders and let your ear decide.

    Great thread--I'm glad someone asked! Where do think an EQ would fit into this chain, if that EQ was only in use during specific situations (e.g., only when using the fretless or if necessary during distortion usage)?
