    So I'm interested in playing around with order a bit...

    What I'm running, in the current order it sits:

    Mad Professor BBOD
    Wooly mammoth Clone
    Xerograph Deluxe
    TC Flashback Delay
    Eqd Afterneath reverb

    I'm going to be adding a Fuzzrocious Rat/cat king (love it!).
    It is my understanding that dirt pedals function nicely in escalating levels of intensity. I love the way my BBOD sounds driving into my Mammoth clone. With this in mind, would the best place for my Cat King be after the BBOD and before the Mammoth clone?
    I also worry that the buffered input of the OC2 will mess with the glitchiness of the feedback mod on the Cat king.

    Any thoughts? Opinions? fU's? Thanks!

    It's all subjective.

    I like to put my dirt intensity in reverse. Since an OD into a Fuzz won't make the Fuzz sound much different, but the OD after will make the Fuzz have a different flavor.

    Just try it in different spots and find what works.
    flyingfinbar and Stumbo like this.

    I don't know if it's the inherently sputtered, crazy nature of the Mammoth, but I've found that a light gain overdrive before it does some crazy stuff. It opens it up into a roar, instead of the buzzing, gated character it has all alone. It sounds gnarly with a guitar that way, too.

    I'm definitely gonna play around with it in the upcoming days, just looking for tips from the experts...I've never had three dirt pedals on one's kinda hot.

    It's also been fun/ocassionally frustrating getting the XeroDlx to play nicely with all of the different variables in front of it. What works with one pedal engaged makes it self oscillate into sub-aural oblivion with a different pedal engaged.

    I'd do an initial setup of tuner > OC2 > BBOD > CatKing > Wooly > Xerograph > delay > reverb. But try other orders of dirt to see how they react with each other.

    Wait....your tuner is last in your chain?

    I like the absolute silence when I hit the tuner pedal. Seems a little quieter this way.
