    I'd go
    Guitar-->Tuner-->FUZZ-->Boost-->Delay (in the FX loop, if possible)-->amp

    Agree with @northernguitarguy . In fact, depending on what type of amp you have (single-ended?), you may have no choice but to put the delay (and any other time-based fx) in the loop. Fuzz can go before or after the boost, depending what you're trying to accomplish.

    Distortion, modulation, delay.
    You don't want to "fuzz the delay".
    You want to "delay the fuzz".

    Yeah, I dunno his FUZZ, but in my experience, FUZZ wants no interference.

    Hello Thanks for replies.
    My amp is a boutique amp based on Fender 50's Tweeds, no effect loop.
    Whan I use the fuzz, I use no effects with, only the Fuzz, exepted the preamp.
    The preamp il always on, the sound is more defined.
    The boost is used only for solos.
    The demay is often used (never with the fuzz), in a light splap back, to a little bit spaced (don't if it is understandable... :squint:).
    Thank you.

    tuner > wah > phaser > compressor > overdrive/distortion/fuzz > EQ > pitch pedals > modulation pedals > level pedals > noise gate > echo > Reverb

    This should be the order for your pedals, THEN AGAIN, this is only a starting point to sound good, but you're completely free to not adhere to this and find your own sound :)

    Gain pedals to the front of the line, that works for me.
