    Ok, need some geek advice on which order to run my new pedal board setup. Here's what i've got:

    two basses: one fretless (Ken smith BTN) and one fretted (Sadowsky)

    Glockenklang soul head- has two inputs (one for each bass), and effects loop and an insert loop. also tuner out.

    Aguilar Db 659 preamp
    Boss bass chorus
    Boss super octave
    Maxon Auto filter
    Home brew power screamer (distortion)
    Strobo stomp tuner
    Bassballs
    Gonna add a buddha wah soon

    Here's what i'm doing right now:

    Fretted bass into powerscreamer>bassballs>Autofilter>super octave> into one input of glock

    Fretless straight into other input

    Aguilar pre, chorus, and strobo stomp into effects loop

    i don't need any effects on the fretless except the chorus, but is there anything else that would be good in the effects loop i ncase i want to later on? How about the general order? I need the preampo for both basses two, is that bad to have in the effects loop? (has seemed to work so far). Generally i'm trying to simplify setup time and number of cables as well.

    Also sometimes i only use the sadowsky if that helps or i should use a different setup.

    i know this should involve some experimenting but wanted a place to start.
