Lately my clean channel has been sounding distorted and muffled. If I'm playing with no pedals it's fine and sounds normal, but if I'm playing through my distortion pedal the clean channel sounds distorted/muffled (even when the pedal is off)

So should I just get a new distortion pedal considering the clean channel is fine without it?

How horrible is your pedal? It probably is your pedal, or one of the leads you use to plug into your amp, basically just test as much individually as you can, try getting another amp on the clean channel and running your distortion through that.

when in doubt, adjust the truss rod.

It's not really horrible. I've had it for a year and a half or two years and it's never done this before.

I guess I'll have to just try out different pedals/amps to figure it out :|

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

How to test...

- Try the guitar without the pedal into the amp
OK now? It's the pedal that making trouble.
Not OK? Try a different guitar.
OK now? Cool. Your first guitar sucks.
Still bad? Try a different cable?
OK now? Your first cable sucks. Get a new one.
Still bad? Blow up your amp for being a little b*tch.

I'm a student. I've got no time or space for an amp!
