Post Bass Distortion
Hey,

Will a guitar distortion pedal damage a bass amp if I plug it in the bass guitar?

No, but most of the time it will sound horrible!

At the NAMM show Mike Szuter was using some marshall stack and played with distortion the entire set. I thought it sounded pretty sweet. :)

^Yes.

I know I'm not really known around here, but believe me when I say this is the bees knees when it comes to bass distortion. Lots of control, from a little breaking up (what I use it for mostly), to just ripping your ass off.

Its satanically delicious.
