    What is the best order to put my pedals and gear in. I am running a PF-500 in to an Ampeg 4X10.

    Pedals I have:
    Boss TU-2 Tuner
    BBE Sonic Maximizer
    Tech 21 VT Bass
    Sansamp Bass Driver DI

    Line 6 G50 Wireless.

    Also have a Boss EQ and a Boss Compressor....but am likely taking them off of board. If I leave on there, where should I put EQ in the chain. Probably won't put compressor back on.

    Current setup chain.

    G50 wireless
    Tuner
    Sonic Maximizer
    EQ
    compressor
    sansamp DI
    SVT4 pro.

    I am switching to the PF 500 and adding VT Bass pedal, and likely subtracting EQ and compressor pedals.

    Any suggestions on order of pedals, and overall setup?

    If you were me, you'd get rid of the sonic maximizer. Then you'd get rid of either the sansamp or the vt bass (Keep the sans amp if you need the DI, otherwise keep the vt.)

    Then do this:

    wireless

    tuner

    EQ (you might want a foot-switchable EQ setting)

    SansAmp or VT

    Yea, considering dropping the sonic maximizer. I do notice a slight difference in sound, but not significant.

    What are your thoughts on it?

    Honestly? I don't think it's going to do anything you can't do with your VT and your EQ.
