I won a small poker tournament last night...
So rather than blow the money on more of the same, I decided to get a couple of pedals.
A brand new MXR 10-band EQ and a used Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone compressor. I've wanted the EQ for a while but just not picked one up.
So - the general consensus on at MG is that the EQ should go in the effects loop. I already have my delay and reverb in the loop. Should the EQ go in the chain before or after the other pedals?
Second - there seems to be some division on where to place a compressor. Is that something I would place before my overdrives or after? Right now, there's a Mini-Tube Screamer and a Keeley Red Dirt between my tuner and the amp.
Thanks for any advice.
I put mine in the loop as the first thing in the chain so it shapes the sound of what the preamp is sending prior to effects..then the effects can use that dialed in sound to play with then send back to be amplified.
