    What order would you line these up on your pedalboard for single playing and stacking,thanks.Pedals are Hermida Zendrive1,Analogman Astrotone Fuzz,Fulltone OCD,MI Audio Crunchbox,Digitech Metal Master.And as a bonus question would you put the Boss ns2 noise supressor after these and before effects pedals,or at the end of the chain before the amp?

    Astro -> Zen -> OCD (LP mode) -> Crunchbox

    I'd see no use the Digitech with those four.

    Wundergussy's order is how I'd do it too, maybe the Hardwire after the OCD. I'd sell the ns2. If I had to use it, last in the chain.

    Fuzz
    OCD
    Zendrive (it stacks nicely)
    MI Audio
    Drop the Digitech (those have always been a can of bees, the Crunchbox can do an amazing amount of gain so much better)

    Noise suppression after the dirt but before time based effects, you don't want your threshold cutting off delay tails or cropping your verb.
