    Analogman modded DOD 250
    Crunchbox
    Analogman modded DS-1

    Which config would give me the most versatility? Playing a wide range of classic rawk.

    Also, Phase 90 before or after the stack?

    Thanks!

    imo, stacking highest gain first down to lowest gain last is the best way to stack. so it depends on how you set your pedals

    phaser is a mod type pedal so it can go after the OD or in an amp loop. let the ear find the answer

    My setup is always:

    Octavia
    Fuzz
    Low OD
    High OD/Distortion
    Boost

    I use the 250 for a nice 70's type rhythm (and some leads) tone think: Bad Co/Free/Zeppelin.
    The Crunchbox is for some heavier stuff (Van Halen, Alice In Chains etc....).
    The DS-1 is used to give the 250 a little kick when I feel it needs it.
    I also use a SCP for boosting whatever needs boosting.

    I like the Phase 90 and currently have it after the OD's, was wondering if placing it before them would give it a more subtle effect (not a bad thing).

    my pedal order would be

    Phase90 > DOD250 > DS1 > Crunchbox

    I like phasers in front, more subtle, no harsh frequencies ...
    I always stack low gain into higher gain ...
    So I would use the DOD to give the DS1 and CrunchBox a kick.
