  1. Hi guys,

    I need a little advice - i tried a serach for an hour or so, and couldn't really find what i was after.
    My question is -- If i use multiple pedals, say a couple of distortion pedals and whatever else simultaneously, will this damge my speakers?

    thanks again,

  3. I would also say no, but still "no" when you use such a thing???

    I really think of getting one of these sick effects from Effector 13 or DBA, but I am afraid they could do something bad to my speakers at louder volumes...

    I checked out the sound samples of the Nofi pedal at Effector 13. That is, without a doubt, the ugliest thing I've ever heard. They've managed to make a pedal that replicates bad shielding, a cable that's had a few too many road cases rolled over it, a tube hanging half out of the socket and a torn speaker. Brilliant!!! :D

    smo. You probably won't damage your speakers, just make sure that the level knobs on the pedals (especially distortion/od and preamp pedals. ie: anything that adds gain) aren't all cranked to full, and you should be fine.

    Here's an excerpt from a private message that I sent someone recently. Maybe this could help.

    You can tell that it's part of a conversation between fellow GK owners, but I still think it's applicable. It's copied-and-pasted just as it was originally written; I don't have time right now to go-over it...

    Hope this helps -

  7. Thanks for the info fella's!
    Now i can put my mind to ease.......... :cool: :bassist:
