Where do you place chorus and phaser in the chain?

I read somewhere that modulation effects would work best if placed in the order from most subtle to least subtle modulation, which in my case would mean placing the chorus before phaser. I assume both should precede delay.

What is your recipe?

i found... (and this may be just me), that when was using delay, chorus, phaser, fuzzes... they worked best in this order

Phaser (phase 90) -> fuzz/dist (shred/rat) -> Chorus (Boss Ce-2) -> Delay (ad9 and dd20) -> amp

i found that placing the phaser in front did a nice job of blending the phasing effect and that placing the phaser after dist/fuzz produced a "generic" (IMO) phasing sound.

Phaser right before or after wah and the chorus, right before delay, at the end.

I would say just try it out and see what sounds best. There are no rules, just opinions and some tentative guidelines. I think the biggest decision is not what order to put the modulation effects as very rarely would you have the chorus and the phaser on at the same time (I'm speaking for me), but whether to put them before or after dirt. After dirt seems to give a more pronounced effect. Before dirt more subtle.

So would it work having the phaser right up front, even before the clean boost? (I don't use a wah or a fuzz, only clean boost and overdrive.)

No, I'd run it after the boost. You don't want to overdrive / create clipping in your phaser.
