there have been tons of questions over the years about where to put your pedals and how to get the best tone.  Everyone always references gain staging as the most important piece of the equation.  Well the video below is probably one of the best I have ever seen explaining how gain staging works, what to look for, where to place pedals, etc...  a bit long but definitely worth the watch!
