I'm setting up my rig and want some opinions on how to set up the chain for my pedals. I really don't have much but I'm wondering the best way to set them up for the best tone. Here's what I'll be using:

Boss Chromatic Tuner
RAT Distortion (I might use two distortions eventually. One for a dirty rhythm sound and another for lead.)
MXR Dyna Comp
MXR Phase 90
MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay
Electro-Harmonix Qtron
Dunlop Crybaby

The Phase 90 and Crybaby are kind of optional. I don't use them a ton to be honest. I'd like to set it up so that they are available though.

Convench wisdom would put it tuner > Comp > Qtron > RAT > Phase > Delay. The Wah is really up to your taste. It can some first or be anywhere before the delay (I guess you could put it after the delay, but that's pretty strange). Experiment and see what you like.
