Effects Pedals - A Guide to the Order of Effects

What order should I have my guitar effects pedals?

This question arises time and time again and now it’s time to find out which is the best order for your guitar effect pedals! Although there’s no concrete, strict order you must have them in, there are some ways of getting the best out of them for optimum tone!
