    Okay guys, need some help hooking up my pedal chain...as of right now here is the set up listed from right (start of chain) to left (end of chain):

    Does anyone see a problem for me or will this work...I Know it's all preference but I would like to see how others run theirs...thanks!

    sounds good to me. I can't comment on the order of chorus and flanger, as long as you're not using both at the same time it doesn't really matter I guess.

    My chain for 90% of the time is
    Tuner -> Compresser -> SwitchBox -> Chorus/Flange -> PreAmp.

    My Switchbox has two A/B loops which may be switched on/off to give me two separate loops (A only, B only) or one big one (A -> B)

    In the A loop I have :
    Octaver -> Overdrive/Distortion -> Wah.

    Some people prefer Wah before od/distortion. I prefer it the other way round, works better for the sounds I need.

    In the B loop I have:
    Fuzz -> Env Filter/Bassballs
  3. I think I'd put the flanger after the chorus, like you've done. In my mind, that'd give a better sound.

    (I don't have a flanger...... yet. It's next on the list, I just have to find one I really like in the secondhand shops.)

    My (basic) chain is

    Synth --> delay --> distortion --> phaser --> chorus

    How do you like the bass balls pedals...I used the Boss ODB for a while and could not find my own tone in it. Thoughts on the B. Balls pedal?
