First you put your pants on your head.
Second you dance.
Third you wipe off all the pussy.

Look up what an attenuator is used for to see why you shouldn't do that...

A pedal cant take that kind of signal level it would blow as soon as you turned the amp on. If it was a SS amp might be all that happens. A tube amp it could get real expensive w a blown OT or more damage internally.

If you dont have an FX loop any pedal or FX you have needs to be between your guitar and the amp.

exactly. im going to think that you would melt half the components inside the pedal to start. most pedals use components rated at like 1/4W, so if you start pumping multiple watts into it then things are going to start failing. once that happens and you get a open or short where the pedal used to be, the output transformer is going to blow because it isnt seeing the correct load.

now im sure it would be kinda cool to watch, but other than that its a really bad idea.

The pedal would die, as you're sending a much louder signal than you normally would through it. you should put the distortion pedal before the amp.

How many UGers does it take to say it's a bad idea?


Quite a few, apparently.
