How can you explain that? (order of pedals)

  1. Hello there!

    I got a quick question.

    I have a EHX smallstone Phaser, a Big Muff and a H&K Warp-Factor.

    When i put the Big Muff before the H&K each distortion pedal works on their own, and i can combine them.

    But when i hook the BigMuff after the H&K, the bigmuff seems to be de-activated.

    I no matter if it is switched on, it doesn't do any change to the sound, i wonder why this is like that.
  2. some distortions are lost when placed after certain others...phase or frequency cancellation?

    if the pedal in front is "dirtier", a pedal running less gain afterwards wouldn't be as noticable. same too with a midrange-heavy distortion in front of something more scooped.
