I have a fender hotrod deluxue...giggiddy...
I found tonight (while screwing around) that i like the sound a lot better if i bypass the preamp and run my guitar through my alesis meq230 (30 band eq). Has anyone had an experience similar to this? or am I just weird.

What do you mean, bypassing your preamp?

If you're running it in the effects loop (effects send -> alesis -> return) then you're not bypassing the preamp.

It is very possible.

If you are asking how to bypass your pre-amp, you'll need a little bit more knowledge, unless you just wanna follow what someone tells you.

Modding to bypass a pre-amp is very easy, if you know what you're doing. Otherwise, you could just follow step by step guides on the internet.

my amp has a preamp bypass built in. What i'm asking is: Does anyone else do it?

Is there a very large volume drop? If there's not, you may just be bypassing the EQ, not the whole preamp. Plugging your guitar into the Alesis and then plugging that into the effects return is truly bypassing the preamp; that may very well be the same as what the preamp bypass on your amp does, but that's not a common mod so I can't be sure. It could be a few different things.

With just my guitar there is a volume drop. But with my multipedal and the EQ i actually get MORE clean volume then i did with the preamp. a Much creamier sound as well.
