    I bought a vibrato pedal and placed it after my phaser. My chain is tuner->wah->fuzz->od->dist->phase->vibrato->eq->delay. It sounds good but I'm wondering if there's another place in the chain where it could go.

    I'm using many after the phase and get very good results.

    Might sound cool after the delay as well.

    I read a post by Muddy a few weeks back where he was talking about the placement of certain effects last in the chain to mimic them being sort of 'onboard' effects in the amp - like tremolo pedals, etc. Vibrato last in the chain could fall into that reasoning as well. I'm going to try it myself soon - just haven't had the time yet!

    It never even crossed my mind to try vibrato, or anything for that matter, after the delay. Could be interesting.

    Me either - but Muddy's post made a lot of sense...

    I think he was refering to Leslie sims in his original post, but it seems like it should work for other effects like trem and vibrato that can be found in certain amps.

    I think he's refering to a Vibrato (pitch modulator), not a Vibe (UniVibe type effect - totally different thing)...

    If it IS a Vibe - I agree!

    I will give it a try. And yes it is a vibrato(chicken salad) not a vibe.

    I know the chicken salad is named as a vibrato pedal, but I think it's sound is pretty much a vibe sound. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
