    I have the following effects with a newly acquired Boss EQ GEB-7.

    Current Setup in Order:

    Boss TU-2
    Fulltone Bassdrive
    Trace Elliot Dual SMX Compressor
    Sansamp SBBDI
    Amp


    I am adding the Boss GEB-7 to the chain, but I am not really sure where to put it, or for that matter if my current effects chain is optimal.

    How would you guys arrange these effects and why?

    I know the Boss GEB-7 may be slightly redundant with the Sansamp, but I want to be able to go instantly to an EQ setting for slap, or to EQ some nightmare clubs.

    Thanks for your responses.

    with the GEB-7 before or after the Sansamp. If you leave the Sabddi on all the time, I'd say after.

    After the Sansamp might be a good idea. I tend to leave the Sansamp on quite a bit.
