          That's a very personal question and I'd rather not answer in public.

          I've never really been much of a wah guy though. I tried either at the very front, or right behind the compressor and OD.

                  Thanks. I had it backwards. Actually I've been thinking of taking it out of the chain completely. I just don't use it enough.

                          I use mine after my fuzz/heavy distortion (my broad switches between a high gain FF clone or a Big Muff Pi) and before everything else. It's followed by a compressor to tighten up the wah low end and smooth out the overall volume through the sweep and then my overdrives are after that.

                            I put my wah right after the guitar and put all my other effects in the fx loop. but sometimes i do move it around for some different sounds
