would it be ok to run a distortion + into a clean amp model on a pod? then to a PA?
Yeha it'd be fine. It just won't sound that good.
ive heard of people doing it with success, i just didnt wanna blow anything up!
yes you could do that, or you could use one of the distortion channels on the pod and get a much better sound.
You're not risking to damage anything.
the distortions on the pod are a little fuzzy when you really crank it, my buddy has a dist+ hes willing to part with for free. so i thought id try it possibly for a bit of extra dirt
the dist+ is rather fizzy also, IIRC.
what you want to do will work fine from a technical standpoint. i use other predals including distortion through my POD for recording and it works fine . that MXR pedal though won't deliver a very good sound at all so i'd try a different one that is more flexible.
thanks guys. im getting decent sound out of my pod, just wanted to switch it up. no harm in trying a free pedal
You're paying the right price. Unless it's one of the older script models.
What pod is it? You shouldnt have a problem with an X3 or an HD getting a good tone.
