lets say my amp had a built in Overdrive/ Distortion. I also have a Overdrive/Distortion pedal, what would happn If i use both at the same time? will I get a heavier sound?

drive + more drive = heavier + many many moments of undesirable hum.

but it wont break the amp or any other thing right?


no, but you may want to roll back the gain on the amp a little bit or get a noise supressor of some kind if you get some bad dist. buzz or humming.

I would always get that problem with any of my distortion pedals, It would sound like its distorting the feedback from the pedal and not the note played that's why I just have my amp on a good clean setting and turn up the distortion on the pedal.

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

but if you ever need on the spot feedback though you can set one really high, just don't hit a string as your ears will be surprised and retreat to your brain where they will cause a headache for the next few hours.

I think a lot of players use an overdrive pedal over the distortion channel as a boost, specially when playing solos.
Besides being a guitar player, I'm a big fan of the guitar. I love that damn instrument. Steve Vai
