    Is it possible to upgrade a tweeter in my rumble 350 combo so that it is able to withstand fuzz pedals? I've noticed I'm burning up my current one from using fuzz but I love the sound I get when using a tweeter, anyway around this?

    Thanks

    Yes it's up to you what horn tweeter you fit, does it have a level control,
    Or L PAD, anyway bucking the current trend for downsizing
    a little, I don't think your rumble 350 with any kind of pedal would blow this horn tweeter:

    Use a low pass filter, speaker simulator or electronic crossover to filter off >3.5Khz before your effects signal hits the amp.

    If you make this switchable by foot, effectively you could have your full range tone or a your low passed tone for fuzz.
