    my new clean boost pedal?

    BEFORE or AFTER my distortion pedal?

    Current chain: guitar>distortion>delay>amp

    Thanks...

    before the distortion makes it more distorted. after the distortion makes it louder.

    if you have amp distortion in an amp with an effects loop, put the clean boost and the delay in that loop so they're both still after the (amp) distortion.
