In which order should you place all your effect pedals?  ll that’s left to do is to place the pedals on the board in the order you want to have them, keeping in mind that generally:

  • tuners go first,
  • followed by filters (wah, auto wah, envelope filters),
  • then compressors, then overdrives,
  • then modulation (chorus, tremolo, flangers, phasers),
  • then volume pedals,
  • then delays,
  • and finally reverb.

EQs are generally placed either before or after the overdrive. Be sure to put the very first pedal in the chain on the very far right or left of the board, and the last pedal in the chain on the edge of the opposite side.

This is so you can easily plug your guitar into one side of the pedal board and plug your amp into the other.
