WHAT'S YOUR SIGNAL-CHAIN LOOK LIKE?

Not sure if this has been covered before - apologize if so.....

What is everyone's signal-chain look like? The order in which your pedals go makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE in your sound and most players don't really spend alot of time on this stuff.
Some pedals "create" sound and some "mold" sound.

I'll start:

UNIVERSE>SAMSAMP>BAD HORSIE>CHORUS>COMPRESSOR>AMP

Different order of devices makes an incredibly different sound.
WHATCHA GOT?????

I've heard it's the standard thing to do- to put the compressor 1st.

Usually just a guitar cord. Yesterday I experimented with an old Washburn compressor pedal as a bit of a gain boost.
