    I normally sort this one out myself since I know the theory behind the ordering, but I've acquired a few new OD pedals in the last couple of months so I wanted to check your varied opinions on how you think they should be stacked. I haven't gotten a lot of time to experiment with the order of the ODs, so I wanted to see if there was a common method here.

    I'm also redoing the top of my homemade pedalboard w/ some velcro from lytpedalboards.com, hence the timing.

    That said, how would you order these, specifically the ODs?

    EH POG
    Boss TU-2
    (always at the end) Boss DD-5, Line6 DL-4

    Currently off the board, add 'em if you like:

    Hey ARch:

    I have some similar components so I posted my chain below.

    biggest difference to the above suggestions is probably the POG before the boost/dirt section. Forgot why I did it that way, but I'm happy with the results. (I'm using the POG w/out any dirt. It's a bit noisy, so I'm guessing if I ran it into the Rat it would be quite a hiss-fest. Might be nice though...)

    Klon

    Keeley Rat

    I'd definitely do POG before OD as well.

    I'll have to try the POG that way -- since it's only one pedal I don't mind sitting down to experiment a little. I haven't owned it long, but since I've had it it's been before the OD section.

    Thanks guys, I had the ODs stacked slightly differently before so glad you all seem to agree on that order for me to try.

    Yeah, on the OD's it looks like they are recommending lightest dirt to heaviest dirt, which is what I've been doing.

    hold the presses...
    put the tone press back on the board and step away from the pedals...and no one gets hurt

    Haha. Trust me, it'll be the first one back as soon as I get my cables in order. I knew I was rebuilding the top of the board, so I just threw together what I had and the new POG took it's place temporarily.
