    I got a couple of pedals for Christmas, and just recently built a new pedalboard. I know its all a matter of preference, but I was looking for suggestions on the order I put them in.
    This is what I have been using:

    TU-2-->Volume-->Wah-->TR-2-->DD-5-->NS-2

    I got an OC-2 and a PH-3. Any suggestions where to put these? I was thinking:

    TU-2-->Volume-->Wah-->TR-2-->PH-3-->OC-2-->DD-5-->NS-2

    Any other suggestions? Thanks!

    I would put the octave right after the vol pedal. I use my POG2 this way, but then again that's just me..

    this order IMO
    volume at the end to control your volume but before delay to dont cut the feedback same thing with NS2(noise suppressor right?)
    no overdrives ? so why a noise suppressor
    if you add disto place it between ph3 & tr2

    Personally I would either run:
    TU-2 -> OC-2 -> wah -> volume -> PH-3 -> TR-2 -> NS-2 -> DD-5
    if using volume pedal to control gain, though as mentioned there aren't any overdrives.

    Or if you want the volume to control the overall output volume I would run:
    TU-2 -> OC-2 -> wah -> PH-3 -> TR-2 -> NS-2 -> volume -> DD-5

    In both cases OC-2 first after tuner so it get's the purest signal to generate octaves from. Then phaser and trem order is down to personal preference, but this would be the way I'd run them.

    Also, NS-2 before DD-5, otherwise you'll cut off some of the repeats from the delay as they fall below the NS-2 noise threshold.
