Which is the best way to hook up your delay and echo pedals? I have mine from guitar to echo to delay to amp.Is this the correct way? Confused

Sure, that works. If you have a dirt pedal, people usually put the delay after it or in the amp's effect loop.

I've always ran Delay then reverb. Right or wrong that's the way I've done it for the last 45 years.

I sometimes run a little over drive pedal (I barely use it; and keep it cranked down quite a bit..it's more of a little boost..The EHX Soul Food pedal).

That goes first after guitar, THEN, if you want into a Volume pedal. I run the volume pedal when I use it after the overdrive. Overdrive and dirt pedals react to signal strength a lot. So I only want the overdrive reacting to my picking dynamics and NOT the volume pedal, I run it before the volume pedal.

AFTER the volume pedal, I go into a delay (MXR Carbon Copy, usually), if I use it.

The last pedal before the amp is my reverb pedal. I use either a Topanga Spring reverb, or a Digitech pedal called " Supernatural Ambient Reverb". I like the room verb setting on that one, but if I want spring reverb sound I use the Topanga.

Anyway; there's no real rules; but generally you want the last pedal before your amp to be a reverb (if you are using one, or just use the amp's reverb).
If no reverb pedal; then last pedal before amp can be delay (or echo).

Basically: Guitar----dirt pedal----volume pedal----delay-----reverb---amp.

Or just go straight to amp and no pedals

I use a Boss RV3 with delay and reverb, so I only have one pedal that does both.
