    Treble booster/fuzz, buffer, non tb-wah all need to go before my overdrives and then into a volume pedal. Where would the buffer go? I'm thinking treble booster first, then buffer, then wah to the rest of my board. Any one care to chime in?

    I always put the buffer (my TU-2) after all dirt and before my mod pedals. Definitely I'd put the TB 1st.

    Thanks. Yeah, I want that treble booster first. So treble booster, (non tb) wah, od, distortion, buffer, EBjr vp, then my mods and delays?

    I like fuzz to be the very first in the chain, in order to get the most versatility out of it in terms of the clean-up factor. This is more specifically related to germanium fuzzes in my experience, and that's the type of fuzz I use. YMMV.

    My treble booster is directly after my fuzz by design (they share the same box), followed by my two ODs. My buffer goes between my last OD and my volume pedal. Any time I have my wah in the chain (which isn't often) I put it in after my fuzz.
