i know this is in the wrong forum but no one in the right forum will respond.

i got a digitech distortion pedal and i plugged it into the back of my amp where it says effects. then plugged it into the guitar, it turns on and stuff. but when i plug the pedal in the volume drastically drops to like 3 watts.and i get the distortion sound but u can just barely hear it. also when i plug the pedal in my amp i cant play with it turned off.

this sounds like a more appropriate forum: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=33

check the cables and if the "effects plug-in" is fully working

Normally, you go guitar->pedal->input on your amp. Or, you use an effects loop, where you put it out the back of your amp, as well as back into it. Sounds like you're not doing that. Volume isn't measured in watts.

ok you should either be goin guitar--->pedal--->input on amp or

guitar---->input on amp---->effect loop send----> pedal----> effect loop return

if it isn't laid out like that your doing it wrong
