    I'm playing a gig on Friday and net to set up my pedals after a band quick as possible and was wondering what's the best order to put a Boss Phaser,TU-2 Tuner,Big Muff and Sansamp BDDI?I woulda thought Sansamp closest to my bass but I tried it with just that and the muff and it sucked the muff(!) completely.

    I tried to put my SansAmp last in the chain so if I ever needed a DI I could have my effected sound thru the PA, but the sound wasn't a s good as what I have now:

    SansAmp BDDI> Digitech Bass Synth Wah (octaver)> Q-Tron> Danelectro FabTone> Digitech Bass Multi Chorus> Digitech DigiDelay> amp

    I read that putting any distortion/ delay/ modulation effects AFTER an filter effects works best, which seems to be the case with my stuff. I would suggest:

    Tuner> Big Muff> Phaser> BDDI

    but do whatever sounds best, as that is what counts.

    Hope this helps!
