    Hi,

    Bought myself a Boss BC2 pedal which can be set as a Top Boost type pedal. Would I need to place it before or after dirt?

    For the people who have top boost type pedals, where do you place yours in the chain? Do you treat it like a dirt pedal or as an amp sim that gets driven by additional dirt pedals?

    Try both and decide which you like best. Generally, I'd put something like that last in the dirt chain, since it's mimicking an amp... But only you know what'll work for your ears and in your specific rig.

    I agree with this on all accounts.
