    Very new to effects. I just started a pedalboard and will have these effects...

    Korg Pitchblack tuner
    Bass Big Muff Pi
    Castlerock Chorus
    Digitech Bass Synth Wah

    The VT is always on and I just wanted to be able to add a little with the other pedals. What order do you believe these should be in. The chorus and Bass synth should be here at the beginning of the week so I have some time to ponder this.

    I'm also considering a octaver. Does the digitech also do that or would I be better off getting a separate pedal for that?

    Thank you for the help. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. And if there are suggestions for any other pedals please shout it out. Oh and the music will be rock,alternative and a little bit of punk covers with 2 guitar players if that will make a difference.

    Welcome to hell :)

    Order ? I'd experiment a bit, but start with this: BASS > tuner > BSW > Muff > VT > Chorus > AMP

    As for octaver, the BSW can do it (knobs left to right: min, 10-11 am, min, mode 7), the question is what do you want this pedal to do most of the time.

    Other pedals... I'm not sure. Maybe delay ?
