    Hey all! I I'm going to be getting a TC Electronics Dark Matter Distortion pedal soon, and I was wondering where it should go with my other two pedals, (An mxr compressor, and a Danelectro Milkshake chorus). I don't know what order the pedals should be in, and I can't seem to find any charts or pages that help. Thank you!

    You will get a million answers but for me it would be compressor > distortion > Chorus

    I'd likely do distortion > comp > chorus

    It depends on the distortion pedal. Does it benefit from an evened out tone, or is it a more touch sensitive type?

    However, the real answer is this:

    They should go in the order that sounds best to you.


    3 Pedals, you're over thinking this.

    You're welcome.
