    Hello guys, I have a few effects, and I want to make low noise pedal chain.
    So let’s cut to the chase this are my pedals:

    1)Sansamp para driver DI
    2)Mxr Bass envelope filter
    3)Boss Bass Overdrive
    4)Boss Bass Chorus
    5)MXR micro amp

    that’s how I use them, the bass goes directly to the number 1, and from the number five I plug to the amp.

    Any suggestions??

    I put my DI at the end for tone shaping and so I can send a signal to the board with my effects in it. The others are probably how I would do it I guess.

    There's no right answer, but if those were mine, I'd go 3, 2, 5, 4, 1.
    Reason, I like dirt before filter, and DI should always be last.
    Where's the tuner?

    I dont have a pedal tunner! =(, I always tune before playing, But I'm planning to buy a pedal tunner
  5. I second this statement. Only thing I may do different is put the Chorus after the DI if I was using it for heavy distortion.

    I used the DI for tone shaping because of the crappy amps that I usually play in the differents pubs with my band, I don't use it like a heavy distortion.

    I'd spend hours playing with the order, but I'd probably start with this and see where I'd take me.

    BASS > BEF > micro amp > OD > Boss Bass Chorus > Sansamp para driver DI > AMP
