    I've started working on a pedalboard, but I'm not sure of the best way to arrage all these effects. The list looks/will look something like
    -Boss NS-2
    -Boss CEB-3
    -Boss GEB-7
    -Boss LMB-3
    -EHX Big Muff Pi
    -Sansamp BDDI
    -Ernie Ball VP JR.

    What would be the best chain for these? Some of these pedals I will use exclusively with for my passive basses, such as the GEB-7, Big Muff Pi, and Sansamp BDDI.
  2. Here's what I'd do:

    Big Muff

    SansAmp BDDI - if you're using it as an effect. If you're using it as a D.I., it should go last.

    Boss GEB-7
    Boss CEB-3
    Boss LMB-3 - since it may add some hiss
    Boss NS-2
    Ernie Ball VB Jr.

    I got my method to my madness Here and it seems to work for my signal chain.
