Hey,
I've recently bought a cheap little dano FAB od pedal, and i'm just playing around with it at the moment. I was able to crank it up quite a bit and give me some great metal tone, but I just want to know: do I need to worry about how high I put the settings on the pedal? I don't want to do anything to damage my peavey classic 50. Or... what settings on the amp should I use when running the dano FAB through it? Thanks!

ah dude i have 3 danelectro fab pedals those are awsome. na you cant hurt your amp with em.
That's some handsome meat.

All right thanks, and yes, they are super little pedals, I plugged it in today and I thought SWEET! At 15 bucks a pop and that kind of quality, i'll buy all of em. I'll prolly get the distortion one next, I probably won't get the metal one, i've heard it gave a weird flanging effect.

Actually, if you have a lot of pedals in series, and the levels turned way up on all of them, can't the signal be boosted high enough to damage your preamp? I seem to remember reading that somewhere... That might have been with higher powered pedals though, like the ones with tubes in them.

As far as I know no matter how many pedals you have hooked up in series the strongest signal that can pass though the last pedal in the chain shouldn't be able to exceed the signal of the last pedal. Unless you are running some very high voltages. In that case the pedal should fry before the amp. If you have the amp cranked up to 10 however and boosted you probably could damage the speaker. Check other's opinions to verify this though.

No.

The pedals circuitry would go before the amp.

Well, I just tested it, and it seems like the amp could handle it pretty well.
I think it works well for a boost for the dirty channel, I can leave the OD down and the level high and it just boosts the amp's natural OD instead of the pedal adding it's.

That is a great way to use it. Too much pedal distortion seems not to agree with the amp's natural distortion at high levels. I mostly use my distortion pedal on the clean channel. Another flavor of foot-switchable distortion available.

Wait, you bought that peice of **** and ran it through your classic 50?! are you cracked in the head?
Thats like buying a 5000 dollar toilet and just pissing on a tree instead.
