DRW effects to your set-up:
There are a number of considerations when daisy-
chaining your effects:
•Preamps and compressors usually go at the front of the chain.
However, envelope filter (auto-wah) pedals, (which need a
variable signal to operate properly) must be placed before
•Next, add your noise-making pedals: overdrive, distortion
and fuzz - these will interact and you will need to find the
right 'pecking order'- usually this will mean putting the
pedal on which you dial in the highest gain setting after
the others. If using a huge amount of gain - these pedals
may be best right at the end of the chain but try this method
first reigning the gain in to reduce noise.
•Modulation effects (chorus, reverb, flangers) theoretically
belong close to the end of the chain. They operate best with
an even signal so must be placed after your compressor. They
can also be quite noisy so usually work better placed after
pedals like distortion which amplify the signal.
•Finally add your EQ and Noise Gate. If you're using a reverb
pedal try it before and after your noise gate.
•These are only guidlines -it's always good to shuffle the
order of pedals in your effects chain and see what sounds
