  1. Hey, Emm... this is probably a stupid question and probably has been asked a million times. can you use a guitar distortion pedal (boss ds-1) and run it through a bass and bass amp??? will this do any damage? :help:

    thanks morty \m/

    Absolutely not =) I myself use a Big Muff, designed for guitar from the beginning...

    So go ahead and try it out!

    Yeah, I agree, it shouldn't do any damage. :) :bassist:

    Honestly, I use all guitar pedals. Big Muff, Double Muff, BF-2 Flanger (yes I know there's a BF-2B Bass Flanger, I just like the purple one better) DOD OD250, etc. The only thing I use that's actually a bass pedal is my Crybaby, which is being sold.

    Some guitar pedals will result in a loss of bottom end. You can increase the bass output with a quick and simple modification: replace some caps with some of larger values.
  5., i could use a guitar wah wah pedal aswell, or would i be best getting a bass wah wah pedal? is there any price difference?
