  1. gday badgers

    Well im putting together my pedal board at the moment. And i need some help on placing my effects :)
    These are my pedals ( a * means i will be aquiring it soon)
    Guv'nor GV2
    EHX Russian Big Muff
    Boss V-Wah
    EHX Small Clone
    EHX Electric Mistress/ Small Stone *
    Some form of octave.. probably the EHX Octave Multiplexer*

    As some of you may have noticed i have an EHX fetish at the moment ;)

    So this is how i thinking of running the pedals...
    Guvnor >> Muff >> Small Clone >> Elec. Mistress/Small Stone >> Octave >> V-Wah

    But i dont really know much on this type of thing. I always thought Wah would go last, or atleast after distortion, but i read on a fact sheet some where that wah should be first. So im confused and want some input from you guys. :help:

    Thanks alot
    Peace

  2. For guitar, Wah should probably go first...Most guitarists always put wah first, normally this is because they are using the distortion built-in to their 100W Tube amps.

    For bass, I've always put my Wah after my distortions.

    My setup went like this:
    Octave/pitch shifter
    phaser
    overdrive
    heavier distortion
    Wah
    Envelope Filter
    flanger
    chorus
    delay
    any compression or limiting.

    This order always left me feeling like I was getting the best out of my equipment and sounds.
