    hey guys im just setting up my 1st "real" board and just got some george L's cables, and want to know your thoughts ands opinions on the signal chain. Heres a list of what i've got:

    Morley little alligator volume pedal

    Boss Tu-2

    Digitech Whammy

    Line 6 dm4 distortion modeler

    Boss odb-3 overdrive

    Sanford and Sunny BlueBeard Fuzz

    Boss rv-5 digital reverb

    Line 6 dl4 delay modeler

    what order would you run the pedals????

    This is a very generalized idea here. You can theoretically put your tuner or volume wherever you want depending on how you want to use delay and signal muting. For example, you can put your volume pedal first and have your delay set very long so as you shut off the volume, the delay kind of finishes it. Or, you can put the volume in the very end to do a complete mute.

    The dist/OD/fuzz, you will have to experiment in what order you want those and how they affect each other.

    This is kind of how I would start and you can work from there

    tuner -> volume -> whammy -> dist/OD/fuzz -> delay/reverb

    New York, NY
    Tuner->Whammy->Distortion/Fuzz (experiment)->Volume->Reverb->Delay

    This would act as a signal mute (volume) but not cut off the nice trails of the reverb and delay (unless you want that) then put the tuner or volume last.
