there will be some variations on this as a lot of it comes down to preference, but in the main

Compressor, distortion, chorus then delay (if you have one) some people like the Wah pedal straight after the guitar at the start of the chain otheres prefer it straight after the distortion, its just a matter of personal preference, it gives a different sound, so try it out to see what you like best. smile.gif

there isnt a "strict" place to put the wah, depends on the effect your after, in front of the distortion is a more subtle effect, after the distortion is quite a different sound, try the both, see what you like smile.gif
