    Ok, now I have three differents stomp boxes : EQ, Flanger, Chorus and I'm planning to get a compressor.
    Is there a particular/preferable order to plug them ?
    I would go EQ first, then either flanger or chorus (since I probably won't use them simultaneously), then compression. Any advice ?

    The general rule is time delay effects last.

    So try the compressor and eq first and the chorus and flanger after. Swap the order of the pairs ie

    eq comp or comp eq and chorus flange or flange chorus

    in the end use your ears.
