Wah Order?

Q: I’m putting together my pedalboard, and was wondering if I should put my wah pedal before my overdrive stompbox or after?

A: Yes! Seriously, you won’t hurt anything, so you may want to try it both ways and see which routing you like better. Most players put the wah before the overdrive, as that’s more the way the chain would work with amp distortion, but some prefer to put the wah after their overdrive (or distortion) pedals, which results in a much more intense wah effect, as the distortion provides so much more harmonic material for the wah’s filter to process.
