Clean Boost, Compressor, Treble Boost and Overdrive: What Order?

Published on 3 Apr 2015

Should you boost your overdrive or overdrive your boost? Compress your drive, or drive your compression? And just what the flip is a treble booster anyway?

In this video, Daniel and Mick get to grips with these fundamental electric guitar effects and demo how their placement in your signal chain radically affects the tone.

Serving up the sounds are an AnalogMan King Of Tone, AnalogMan Beano Boost, original MXR Script Logo DynaComp and Bob Burt Clean Boost… all controlled by TheGigRig G2.

Daniel is playing his Fender Custom Shop ’63 Telecaster and Mick is playing his PRS DGT. The amp is a 1964 Vox AC30.
