I'm getting a Mooer Reecho on Friday and was hoping I could get some opinions on where to place it in this chain.

My heads is a Music Man Sixty-five

Signal chain: Boss Tuner - Optical Compressor - MXR Mico Amp - Tubescreamer - English Muff'n - Marshall Shredmaster clone - Boss Hyper fuzz - modded Boss EQ - Phase 90 - Small Clone Chorus - Maxon AD 01(Analog delay) - Boss EQ - Boss DD-5 - LPB-1

Thanks!

depends on the type and nature of the delay for me. i run volume pedal, wah, comp.. then an old DMM for slapback and a bit of boost. if your delay is known for a unique preamp tone, i like it up front, after filtering devices but before modulation and before boost pedals. sometimes i will use the DMM to slam a ts9 a little. my pedals are in loops though, and rarely would i have both the compressor and a delay preamp that i was using to help boost on at the same time.

For longer and transparent delays, I like them in the effects loop. Barring a loop, i would run the delay dead last, assuming any reverb is post amp preamp. if had to run an amp with no loop and no internal reverb, i would have to experiment with delay or reverb last up front, depending on the devices themselves and the type of reverb I wanted.

If the amp has a loop, the modulation pedals go there. If not, place them up front, but after all the distortion. Generally, short-modulation effects like phaser, chorus, etc. come before delay/echo, which comes before reverb.

Great info but I have no fx loop. The reecho is actually my third delay pedal, so that's why I wanted some advice on where to place it with the other two delays.
