Does chorus go before or after reverb?
Moving your modulation/delay/ reverb effects around can create different sounds. If you want tremolo’d reverb (for example, I’d call a Fender Princeton a reverb -into-tremolo effect), place your reverb before your tremolo. If you want chorus ‘d delay, try placing your chorus after your delay. Etc.
Should chorus go in effects loop?
If you’re getting your overdrive from your preamp, then it’s better you place your chorus (and other modulation pedals) in the fx loop, that’s what fx loop is for. Otherwise your modded tone will be overdriven, which is not generally recommended.
Where do I put my multi effects pedal in my chain?
Typically, most players will find that compression, boost, and dirt pedals are best suited to being first in the signal chain, or perhaps second, right after a wah or tuner (both pedals that may be easily replaced by a multi-effect, by the way). This is a good place to start, as it produces very dependable results.
How do you set a chorus pedal?
In terms of where you would place a chorus pedal in your effects chain, Strymon’s writeup is one of the best and simplest to follow. They recommend placing it near the end of the signal, before ambient effects like delay and reverb. Place your chorus pedal near the end of your effects, but before ambient effects.
What comes first phaser or chorus?
Traditionally you want your phaser first, then flanger and chorus in whatever order after that. But there’s nothing wrong with putting your chorus first and phaser last. That’s how neat sounds get created. I’ve had my chorus before my phaser for years.
Do I need both delay and reverb?
If you just want a fuller sound for recording and live purposes, and your amp doesn’t feature reverb (or has a poor quality one, which is quite common), then the reverb pedal is your best bet. If, however, you want to be more experimental, or just want to make your solos sound cool, then go for the delay pedal.
What is the purpose of an effects loop?
An effects loop is an input/output that allows you to place effects between the pre-amp section of the guitar – where it gets its tone and the power section of the amplifier – where it amplifies the sound. This means that your pre-amp can go anywhere in the signal chain rather than having to be the last stop.
Do you put a looper in the effects loop?
In this setup, the looper will capture the exact pedal setup at that moment within the loop and won’t react to any changes you then make on your board. You can also put it in between effects depending on what sound you want it to capture.
Where should fuzz pedal go in chain?
Generally, your distortion, overdrive and fuzz effects pedals should go towards the start of your pedal chain as they have the greatest effect on the tone. Fuzz pedals should usually go first, followed by overdrive and finally distortion.
Where does Tube Screamer go in effects chain?
Tube screamers work best at the start or middle of the pedal chain. Tube screamer pedals are a type of overdrive pedal. They are best known for creating a crunchy and saturated tone by adding gain, and increasing the mid-range and treble-frequencies and lowering the bass-frequencies.
Should I buy a multi effects pedal?
Often, you’ll need a costly power brick to power multiple pedals properly at once. If you want a different type of effect, even to experiment, you’ll need to go out and buy one. Pedalboards can get big and heavy and you’re limited by the effects that you have on your board. Buying individual pedals can become costly.
Is a chorus pedal worth it?
A chorus pedal is a great way to create thicker sounds from a single signal. By taking your source signal, doubling it and setting the second signal slightly out of tune and time with the first, a chorus pedal can create the sound of two instruments playing simultaneously.
Is a chorus pedal necessary?
No one really “needs” any pedals. If you love chorus, then get one. Variety makes the world go round.
