is it possible to use guitar pedals and effects like a wah pedal and distortion pedal with a bass guitar and a bass amp?
Holy goddamn!! How many times do people have to ask this?!

The answer is go to the Bass FAQ.

@Charlatan_001: jeez sorry...

@myearshurt and creepingjesus: thanks for that, I'm not really that handy with a soldering iron, I'd probably be better off dishing out a little more cash on bass pedals coz I'd be voiding my warranty and most likely be having to buy a new guitar pedal if i tried to mod it myself
