Can an equalizer pedal be used to overdrive and distort an amp?

Sure, if the amp is set so that it is on the edge of achieving its own natural distortion (just as you would do with a dedicated clean-boost pedal) and the EQ pedal has a level control capable of boosting the volume at least somewhat cleanly.


How musical it sounds depends greatly on the amp and pedal in question.
