So I had a jam session with my Crate V33 to push out the volume and try out some pedals my friends have. I put in an EXH Metal Muff straight into the input, a horribly, very shrill distortion came from it. I tried the effects send, didn't work either.

So here's what the manual says:

Effect Send: Use this 1/4" TS jack to send the signal to an external effects box.

Effect Return: Use this 1/4" TS jack to return the signal from an external effects box.

I usually just put it through the input in my HD.
It's probably an obvious answer, but we all have those moments.
Player, give me some brew an I might just chill
but I'm the type that like to light another joint like Cypress Hill

Dirt always should go straight into the input.

EQ problems?

Putting a distortion pedal in the effects loop means your signal is being EQ'ed and what not by the preamp THEN going to the distortion which generally ends with bad results tone wise.

The MetalMuff is a Distortion pedal, not an Overdrive or Boost which sounds like that's what you were trying to use it as.

Were you using the Metal Muff on the clean channel of your amp?

idk, my palo doesn't like my fuzz factory. it's really harsh through it. i guess the palomino's/v-series just don't like high-gain pedals

Fuzz Factory's are naturally harsh.

I run my V33 on channel 2 with my big muff while being boosted with an OD, so IDK.

I was running it on the clean channel, I was trying to use it for distortion. I'm pretty sure it was EQ problems because the Metal Muff has it's own EQ unless it's turned down all the way.

Man, I was thinking of that, but it just slipped my mind.

I told you guys in the first post it'd be an obvious answer.

how high is your gain on channel 2? i've found on the drive channel it turns into a not-harsh-at-all muddy mess. i boost my fuzz factory w/ my od pedal too, btw
