    Would this signal be harmful to a fuzz, envelope, etc? Done it for years with a wah with no obvious damage. Thx!

    No. There are exceptionally few ways you can harm an audio device by plugging another audio device into it, unless one is built wrong. (Power supplies are a different matter.)

    It might not sound good, though, particularly the fuzz.

    Thanks, I wouldnt be using many of the pedals for acoustic, especially fuzz, lol, but trying to construct a simple board for acoustic and electric. The DI I use is also a remodeler and equalizer and Im thinking it would be best right after the acoustic (passive pickup) before the pedal chain.
