    So the rule is fuzz before buffer, basically first in chain....

    Is there ANYONE using a fuzz within their effects chain after the overdrives?

    The "rule" is not true for all fuzzes. For example Muffs don't really care if they're after a buffer or not.

    Yeah, plenty of fuzzes couldn't care less where the buffer is. Muffs, certain Tonebender types, and a lot of fuzzes that aren't from the traditional families don't react much to buffers.

    I'm using a WH Sw. Pickle, pretty flexible. Didn't want to switch up my pedal board till I heard back on this thread. Judging from the answers, I'm good to go!

    Thanks!

    Yup, I put all my fuzz after my overdrives. Better for stacking!

    I've put my Keeley Fuzz Head between my overdrives, I like having options with stacking.
    OD>FUZZ - more saturated "Fuzzy" tone with better dynamics
    FUZZ>OD - "smoother" with more compression; in my settings more of a "Lead" tone
