    Ok guys, I'm a total newbie to pedal setup so I need some suggestions as to what pedals/effects should go in what order before I go to the amp. I have:

    Tech-21 Sansamp Bass Driver DI
    Boss ODB-3 Bass Overdrive
    Digitech XBW Bass Synth Wah
    Fender PT100 Pedal Tuner
    Boss Bass Equalizer

    Any advice, tips would be helpful, thanks.
     
  2. Generally it should go


    Bass-> tuner-> EQ-> Overdrive-> XBW-> DI

    talking about order... does pedals in the end of chain loose more power and signal?

    i had my DS-1 right after tuner and it really boost my signal, but not i hat DS-1 right before DI to PA, and it is really weakened.. any thought?

    Quick question about the placement of your EQ. Do you have it set for a different sound when you're playing, or for post-distortion EQ? If it's post distortion, then put it after your distortions. :smug:
