One thing I believe builders of pedals (especially non-players) do not take seriously enough is pedal order. I have written articles and made charts before but then I saw this excellent, professionally done Sweetwater Demo which covers everything you need to know in ten minutes it might well be the most important ten minutes you spend to make sure your tone is at peak performance. Yes this is that important to understand.

After watching the video you will also understand why I always mention pedal order when people wonder if their build sounds correct. Please take the time to enjoy this entire presentation.
