I am gonna start puttin in the DS-1 or MXR dist+ and also the Ibanez AD9. What would be a good order for all of these? I really am clueless as to this so I just kinda picked a random order haha. I read somewhere on here envelope goes first but thats about all I know.


Your volume will give you a lot more control at the end of your chain, and the noise sppressor should probably NOT come before your OD and EQ.

Yo Blob
After kinda winging it for years,I took someone here advice with the pedal order.I go-
1)Oc-2
2)Qtron
3)BD #1
4)BD #2
5)Boss Rv-3?
Really loving it!
I like to think I get that 1/22/78 Other One/Close Encounters sound with the Oc-2 and Q tron in that order.
Good luck Mi Amigo! :cool:

Blob, fwiw here's how I would arrange what you have there:
GUITAR>WAH(seems to be the consensus, but I also love it post-DIST)>DIST>EQ(or after od)>OD>DELAY>>VOLUME>AMP. I would not use the NOISE SUPP> but if I had to I'd put it after the delay.

The thing about effects order is to experiment and see how you like the way one affects the next in the chain. I always have my volume pedal as the last thing in the chain before the amp so that all effects get full volume; this makes them more stable in how they respond, as some will respond differently to high volume than to low volume and I like repeatability and predictability with my effects.

Yo TigerDude
Cool shot of Jimi.
The 1st pedal is a Vox wah
The 2nd is the Dallas Arbiter Fuzz
The 4th is the Octavio.
Whats the 3rd pedal?
Looks like a volume pedal.
I'm guessing its the expression pedal that goes with a Uni-Vibe?
Any Ideas?
Jimi @ WoodStock kicked ass.
Too bad his band was in the psychedelic toilet for that gig!
The worst is When the bass guy trys to play along with the Star Spangled Banner-and its like he cant hit a right note.
Conga man did bring his "A" game though. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have a Lovepedal Eternity and love it as my main OD It plays well with others, true bypass and cleans up at the volume nob/pedal. If I want the Jimi type blues I kick on my Lovepedal COT 50 and stack it with the Lovepedal E.

Here's my "current" setup for use with Dead/Blues and some jazz

Guitar>Volume Pedal>Wah>Envelope filter>A/B box
Path A - Direct to BF Clean (Treb 8, Bass 2)
Path B - OD1>OD2>Delay To Amp (Treb 5 Bass 3 Mid (depend on guitar)

Of course this will change again .... always searching for the sound.

You can see the blue-grey Uni-Vibe and controller last in chain. The Octavia silvery spaceship is barely poking out behind his heel but appears to me to be 3rd in chain.

Best efx IMHO is NO efx. If you like the sound of your amp clean, crunch, or overdrive, if it has that capability, then go with it bare for the Blues. Especially with the beautiful tones from your Les Paul. If you don't like any channel sounds of your amp with no efx then you might want to consider a new amp. If you like your clean channel but don't like the overdrive, get a overdrive pedal then. I think its real real easy to kill the tone of an amp that you really like just because you think you need pedals. Thats an easy trap to fall into, one that took me years to figure out.

Very much agree...

However, an FX box should not kill good tones. If it does, toss it!
