How do YOU guys order multiple gain pedals? In my case I'll be adding an Xotic SL drive next to a more tame Wampler Euphoria and my instinct is lower then higher gain, but I've yet to get delivery. I'll try both ways and I know there is no right or wrong way, just curious what the trend may be amongst the FDP.

I'm also adding a trem pedal to the equation and thought I'd put it further down the chain right before delay and reverb, but I've seen discussion about putting it way in front.

At home, I usually have my behringer overdrive pedal going into my (original) MXR script-logo distortion plus. Usually just one or the other is on, but every now and then....

Then there is a Boss Chorus and a digital reverb pedal, again just every now and then.

I'm a lower into higher guy, but for no other reason than it just makes sense for the way my brain works.

I also follow the convention of: dirt > modulation & time-based effects > reverb > amp.

If I'm "splitting" into an FX loop, dirt/boost/comp in front; the rest through the loop.

Timmy (low gain OD) > Stardust (heavier overdrive) > RAT (distortion) > Xotic EP booster. These can stack for different flavors.

EP at the end because I use it to boost volume, rather than gain.

Lower to higher gain makes sense because pushing a higher gain into a lower gain can make the lower gain pedal sound washed out.

I’ve always done lower to higher. And usually the first in that chain is an OD set to the edge of OD.

Having said that, I don’t know what I’d do with those two pedals. I’d have to try it each way.

I've come around to compressor to gain layout. My current board is simple.

TU2 > Xotic > TS808 > Delay.

I"ve gone to the Earthquaker Afterneath which has the best delay/reverb/ambient I've heard in 45 years of playing.

I don't have to choose. The six on my master board are routed through a Boss ES-8, and on a par-patch basis I can move them around, do parallel routing, and other fun.

That's a lot of dirt. No wonder your pedalboard is shorting out.

I've currently got an OCD, MI Crunchbox and EHX Soul Food on my gigging board.

I also have a Bogner Ecstacy Blue, Fulldrive, Formula 5, Tech 21 XXL, Sansamp, OD-1, in case I feel like a change ;-)

I've been a lower Gain into higher Gain guy for decades. But recently on my small board I swapped my low gain Barber Gain Changer and higher gain XTS Winford pedals around to put the Winford first. The thought being I can still boost either pedal w my boss SD1 which is before both pedals. But now I can also boost the Gain Changer w the Winford for a great sounding higher Gain lead tone. Just gives me one more usable tone option that sounds great. Glad I tried it.

I have three dirt pedals on my board. I go from a BD into a TS-9 into a DS-1. I don't know if that's low to high, or not.
