  • Crackling, muffled distortion

    Alright, so I just got an MXR distortion pedal right.
    I plug it in, and it sounds great on clean, but I wanted that extra Randy Rhoads type of push on it, and when I turned my amp to the distortion channel, the sound was real muffled and crackly and was breaking up. Is this just because of my amp being only a 15w practice amp? Cause I know my friend runs his distortion pedal through while on overdirve on his amp too. I think it may be just that my amp isnt pedal friendly, but what do you think? Thanks

    Maybe a dumb question but.. do you have a tube amp?

          Thats what I figured. I have a Peavey tube combo coming on its way. I just wanted to know if my pedal was screwed up somehow
