    Hey TB!

    Here is waht I have, and I am curious how people more experienced w/ effects would set this up for the best possible sound.

    guitars (carvin lb75 & tobias growler5) into....


    105Q wah, TU-2, sbddi, boss bass chorus, boss bass overdrive, DD-3...

    this goes into an bbe bmax-t to a qsc plx1602, to an 810.

    any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I run my preamp pedal at the end of the chain to boost the signal to the amp. My preamp, a Sadowsky, has a separate tuner out, so I isolate the tuner from my chain. I would recommend keeping the SABDDI as the last item in the chain, running a line from it to the amp, and one to the tuner. All other pedals to run in front of it.

    That's pretty much how I have it set and it works for me. I've only used a pedal board for just over a year after 30+ years of playing.

    Good luck

    Thanks!

    Thats pretty much the way I run it now, other than the tuner is in the chain. I run my guitar into the tu-2, then into everything else. I will try isolating the tuner and see what happens.

    Also, a lot of you are using loops......why is this....as opposed to just running a chain and using whatever effect at the time you need it??

    Thanks
