    i was wondering with bass distortion; have you ever tried hooking an electric guitar into it. does it work? cause i play both bass and electric and i dont know which pedal to get and if you can use a bass pedal for an electric also that would be awesome.
  2. You can, but it sounds like crap. Guitars and Basses have different frequency ranges, and the FX box takes a select sample of the range, and distorts it or whatever the box does.

    So when you do this to a guitar, it will sound like poo.

    Use bass FX for bass, guitar FX for guitar.
