so...i got this zakk wylde crybaby wah, and when i press the button down to activate it and leave the pedal totally pressed down it like adds this weird distortion to my amp, and i was just wondering if it would damage anything by leaving it on like that while i played
no it shouldn't damage anything, i leave my vox wah like that sometimes and everything is fine.
yeah, you're just using the higher pitch of the wah on your sound signal
It's an effect, they're supposed to make weird sounds . If that's the sound you're looking for then go for it.
