    I was curious, as the nitrobass is my first head...Is it normal for the status LED to go red when I'm playing? Does that mean it's clipping? Am i harming the head? I do have DDT protection on, but I'm not sure what I should do, or If this is normal. My volume is on about 12 o' clock.

    DDT is a limiter. As long as you have DDT turned on it's pretty hard to get the amp to clip. The light is just showing you that the limiter is working at that time.
