Distortion Problem!

    I bought one of those Behringer OD pedals before Christmas, now it it worked quite well when i ran the pedal strait from my bass and to the amp with my old combo amp. Now that i got the new SWR WorkingPro head i use the effects loop, when i use the distortion it only seems to come from the high frequency horn on my Hartke 4x10. Does this happen to a lot of horn driven cabs, and should i just cut the highs a lil and boost the lows?

    Don't put it in the effects loop. Distortion pedals generally aren't designed to work at line-level (which the effects loop is). It'll sound a lot better in between your bass and amp input. :)
