Tonight was my first practice with my assembled rig, a GK 1001RBII, with an Alesis 3630 in the effects loop. I played a P bass, and throughout the night, I was experiencing slight clips when digging in. I have 2 questions... First, how much clipping is too much clipping? I was getting one little blip every few seconds. Second, would a compressor in the effects loop affect the input clipping? I don't think it would, as I was getting the clip even with the compressors output turned way down. I played a Jazz through the same amp and had no clipping issues. Do I just have a really hot P bass? It's a stock MII Squier. I want to make sure that I don't fry this amp. It's not expensive or rare, but I still don't like breaking stuff. BTW, it sounds absolutely thunderous through an 810E!
