  • can distortion pedals ruin your amp ?

    I bought the mxr super badass distortion and used it for a couple of weeks and my amp burned out, it sounds really trebly and raspy like it was pushed too hard. was the super badass distortion responsible for this?

    A pedal can wear out the front end with too high an output level or the boosted spectra /playing loud can cause something else to give -  or not at all. Have a tech diagnose it.

      Distortion always destroys amps. That is why you should never use a compressor.
