Is it bad for an amp to play it distorted(not with an effect, just natural distortion)?
not good for the speakers
What sort of Amp? If it's got tubes it's usually OK, but I wouldn't do it with a Solid State amp. You may want to research "clipping". There is loads of info right here on TB which you can access via the search function.
Tube amp distortion is totally good.
SS distortion is totally bad.
Ive had this question for a while but didnt't want to post a whole thread, is it alright to clip the tube preamp of a hybrid amp? low levels high levels make a difference?
Provided you don't clip the output stage, yep it should be fine. But here's the dilema. Most SS heads don't have a clip light on the output stage, so how do you know if your clipping?
If this is what you want to do, you'd be safer getting a seperate tube preamp and power amp arrangement.
