    Ok, I have a crunchbox, big muff and a Tim pedal coming.

    What order would you put them in?

    I play in a cover band, I use the crunchbox for the hi gain stuff like Tool, Ozzy, Van Halen etc...., the muff for Floyd and sabbath and I plan on using the Tim for everything from Zeppelin to ZZ Top....

    I generally wouldn't be stacking them, but in case I ever wanted to use the muff with the Tim for a solo, what would you do?

    Thanks
    :AOK

    I've never had a Tim but I would do this for starters (mild to fuzz):

    Tim -> CB -> Big Muff

    I always put fuzz first and I like my Tim best after my other drives when I stack it. So I'd go muff>crunchbox>TIM

    +1. A muff into a boost (I'm counting the Tim there) sounds GOOD. You have to find the right levels, but when you do, it's like you have a super-muff.

    Don't tell mom.

    Definitely the Tim last, Muff into my Timmy sounded great, but I also liked running my Rat into my Muff for thick syrupy leads, so I'd suggest CB-Muff-Tim...
