    If you like the sound you are getting, your chains are fine.
    You can also try this signal order:
    gibson sg - slash octave fuzz - zakk wylde overdrive - evh crybaby wah - mxr evh phaser - mxr evh flanger - zakk wylde chorus - line 6 amp

    You both need to get a delay asap.

    Ps: try your brother's chorus with your bass, you may enjoy being like Duff form guns ;)

    I like turtles.
    I would go:

    SG -> Crybaby -> ZW Overdrive -> Slash OF -> ZW Chorus -> EVH Flanger -> EVH Phaser -> Amp

    Wah and phaser are a very similar effect and I prefer them at the front of the chain. Time based effects like chorus and delay go at the end.

    +1 It will really come down to which sounds you prefer. Some like to phase their distortion and some like to distort their phase.

    Start with Bassgods suggestion and then move the phaser before the flanger. Then determine what you like best.
