    Hi all you legend bass players.
    Please help by suggesting how you would set up the pedals I have recently acquired.
    Boss Tuner, Boss Limiter, Boss EQ, Boss Chorus, EH Big Muff.
    Thank you in advance to any suggestions.

    We can tell you a bunch of different orders based on our tastes, but what matters is what sounds best to YOU! Try them in different orders and see what you like. Do you want your chorus distroted or your distortion chorus'ed? The tuner can go literally anywhere and everyone will tell you why first or last is better, etc. Experiment and share what you like!

    If it was me, I would first try:
    bass - tuner - limiter - eq - muff - chorus - amp

    The only placement I would really toy around with would be the eq.

    Personally I would order them

    EQ, Big Muff, Limiter, Chorus......Tuner wherever you like.

    That's my opinion but I agree with stinky634, pedals interact differently with each other depending on where they are in the chain...example, the big muff will sound different with the eq before or after it....neither is better, it's all personal preference.

    I would advise you to go play......have fun with it!

    Thanks Stinky.
    I was hoping for a starting point as the gear is at a jam room and I get bugger all time to muck around to much before we practice. I will though.
  6. The tuner makes a good buffer at the start.

    The limiter can go last.

    That makes your choices easy.
