Bass EQ Pedal

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by ImNotGeddyLee, Aug 21, 2001.


  1. should a EQ pedal go infront of my other effects or before...?

    while im on it... what would be the best setup for a
    EQ pedal
    Flanger
    Overdrive
    Chorus
    Phaser
    and a Wah?

    so far it goes in the order above... none through my fx loops

    Usually the best order is this:

    distortion and EQ FX

    FX like octaver, synth etc.

    Modulation FX like Chorus, etc.

    You can interchange distortion, EQ and Wah - it depends on what you like and how you use it.

    E.g. if you want to get a sweetspot in the mids for your distortion with EQ or a fixed wah setting, put it before the distortion.

    You can experiment, but I'd put the modulation FX last in any case.
