    can i get some advice on setup for my effects? right now it is:

    Bass > MXR M-80 > Morley blue wah > Boss Delay > Bass chorus > Boss Flanger > Amp

    If you use the M-80 as a DI, i'd put it at the end. If you use it as distortion, put it before or after the wah. I'd do this.

    WITH DI:
    Bass-->Morley Wah-->Chorus-->Flanger-->Delay-->MXR M-80 DI-->Mixer and Amp

    NOTE: Chorus and Flanger can be moved interchangably.

    WITH DISTORTION:
    Bass-->MXR M-80 DI-->Morley Wah-->Chorus-->Flanger-->Delay-->Amp

    NOTE: The M-80 will sound good before and after wah, just experiment.

    If you're gonna use the Compressor, but it after the Wah.
