    Ok, so I need everyone's help on a pedal chain question. I have 7 pedals in mine, and I'm wondering where I should put my Little Alligator volume pedal. I've noticed that if I have it before my effects, then those effects are unheard when the volume is decreased (makes sense).

    So, should I, or can I, put the volume pedal at the end of the chain, and then the effects will be heard a all volumes? Or should I just run it separate from the effects? I'd, ideally, like to have everything situated and running from my pedalboard without broken connections if possible.

    It seems pretty straightforward. If lower level input makes your effects sound worse, then don't lower the input level to them.
  4. Whacky... Put it last. Your effects still won't "be heard a all volumes" though, but I gather that's not quite what you meant to imply.

    Oh, and in the English language, anywhere you see a 'q' there's almost always a 'u' immediately after it!

  7. +2 Right where it belongs.
  8. Nice lateral thinking, but I did say English - that's Arabic! :p
