Overdrive/Fuzz vs. Clipping and speaker damage
So coming from guitar I'm used to cranking a tube amp to get breakup from my preamp, power amp, and occasionally even some speaker breakup. It's a common practice and hasn't done any major harm. I have been reading, however, that bass amp clipping can cause serious spikes that can damage speakers. I would like to use some fuzz and overdrive pedals with my bass amp and am concerned that it could cause speaker damage. Will fuzz effects have the same effect as amp clipping from a cranked bass amp? What should I listen for to keep my rig safe when using effects? The stuff ill be using is...
