    Just a pedal order question
    Currently On my board I have in the following order:
    Fuzz
    Overdrive
    Delay
    Leslie emulator
    Reverb/trem
    Eq

    I was thinking the phaser would go with the leslie pedal but ive seen some say the paser should go before the OD. Your thoughts?

    I have my phase 90 after my compressor and before my overdrive/distortion. My board at the moment is:

    Guitar
    Wah
    Compressor
    Phase 90
    Distortion
    Reverb
    Delay
    Chorus

    Aimed at the nearest Klingon! Actually, I use chorus sparingly and it sits in between my overdrive and delay/reverb.

    I just picked up a Donner Mod Square pedal and plugged it in at the end of my board just to make sure it worked straight out of the box. Phaser, tremolo, chorus, etc, all sounded good even after reverb. I ran the phaser there for a while with compressor, fuzz, stacked overdrives, delay, the whole shebang (not all at once) before it and it sounded good. Next I want to try it in the FX loop. So I would say experiment and see where it works best for you.

    After fuzz/overdrive/distortion/chorus, before dimension-c, delay, trem, reverb.

    Both my Phase 90 and vibe are right after my Spark Mini boost, before any dirt.

    The phaser after distortion is too dramatic of an effect for me.

    In the bottom of my cable bag, with all those 10' cables I'll "get around to fixing ".



    At the end of the pedal chain, instead of delay, is where i put it last time I'd played around with it. Guitar-fuzz-distortion-chorus-phase.

    Reverb has always come from the amp, I'm a big fan of chorus, not so much of phaser stuff. They're neat, I'm just not big on them.

    The general rule or atkeast succession is you put your modulation pedals in length Oder, except reverb. So phaser, in your case, I’d try between the od and the delay.

    Phaser up front - in front of OD for sure. After tuner and compressor when I used I use one. flanger, tremolo and phaser can go in any order. Chorus for me goes in the loop or after the preamp with reverbs and delays.

    Phaser? It's 2019!

    But for sake of argument - Tuner>OD>Dist>Mod>Delay>Reverb

    I'm using a flanger instead of a phaser, but my setup is wah->flanger*->delay->amp. I am using my amp for distortion so there is no pedal dirt and my pedals are in front so distortion is last.

    * the flanger is actually running in the loop of a Boss LS-2 pedal so that it is mixed about 50/50 with the dry signal so it is not so overpowering.

    I like to have phaser/flanger/chorus before delay so the delay effect is more dynamic and interesting instead of being crushed by the modulation. In your case I would put in before delay and experiment with having it before or after dirt.

    I prefer to run it before anything else, right after the tuner.

    I have 2 small pedal boards.
    When I use a phaser or a flanger, i usually run that in the effects loop with chorus and delay.
    out front i use tuner>compressor>blues driver>either envelope filter or octave pedal. rarely i'll attach a wah.
