    I just got two new pedals and would like some opinions on where to put them in line? Here are all my pedals Crybaby wah, Boss Dual Overdrive, Boss Metal Zone, Boss Super Chorus, and A Fender PT-10 tuner. I was thinking to go something like guitar wah overdrive metal zone chorus pt-10 amp.

    So my order looks good or should I put the tuner at the first.

    tuner first everything else is cool, kill the metal zone, throw it away, do anything you can to not have it in your signal. it's the all sucking, all tone killing wonder of the world.

    experiment with the order by just hooking things up in different orders. It takes forever but you can really combine them for cool sounds that way.

    Your order is perfectly fine, except, if you have an effects loop, you should put the chorus and tuner into that.

    Pedal order should always be Guitar > Wah/Whammy stuff > Dist > Modulation effects > Amp

    With what everyone else said, but sell the Metal Zone, and buy a Rocktron Metal planet (you should have some money left over if you're thrifty) and have 10x better tone. Same controls and objective, just way better sound and completely silent.

    Send your MT-2 to LordOvChaos and have him modify it. It will destroy any distortion pedal out there.

    -ve0, there's no absolutely set rules to how to run pedals, just guidelines people tend to follow :p.

    i agree with the get rid of the MT-2. I'm willing to bet you'd be better off with a TS7ovChaos in hot mode into your amp.. sell the MT-2 for $65, get $20.. done!
