Recently, I've been having some fun twisting the knobs on my pedals to create weird noises. Is that any way damaging to my pedals or amp?

If they damaged the amp or the pedals, they wouldn't have made them with the knobs would they.

That's the advantage of being such a distance from Yianni. I can continue to live my life without fear of stumbling upon his dark terror.

Pretty much this. Nothing wrong with twisting knobs and making trippy noises.

Haha, okay. I don't know, cos crossing the signals like hell made me think so. Thanks for the comment.

The only way I could see damaging a speaker is with some low bass sweeps. I do trippy crap all the time with my dl4...But I have a twin reverb and it just laughs.

if you crank the regen on some delay pedals at half past midnight on the 3rd day after a moon crest you can sometimes pretend you have a womb.

happened to me once


v...that is the delay I have

I'm always terrified that my Carbon Copy will make my amp explode. Hasn't happened yet.

Lord I hope not, that'd take all the fun out of all my pedals. I have like about 25 pedals so far, and I've tried most possible combinations in the past year. Your amp and pedals will be fine.
