Nothing wrong with using a bass amp for guitar, but if you're getting flubby low end you might want to switch to guitar speakers/cabs to tighten it up.

There is nothing wrong with using a bass amp, but obviously its not giving you the tone youre after now.

You should be able to EQ the Swollen Pickle with the settings on the pedal itself. There is a filter knob, crank it clockwise, and maybe up the mids the with scoop knob and turn the crunch knob counter-clockwise?

nope. bass amp frequencies **** guitar speakers like a bitch. he'd be better off with using a guitar amp into bass speakers.

I don't think you understand how guitar and bass amps work. They both output pretty much the full frequency range. Although obviously guitar and bass voicings are different, it's mostly the speakers that dictate what's cut.

Guitar speakers have a very pronounced rolloff of highs and to some extent lows (if you've ever plugged a guitar amp into a full-range cabinet you'll know how utterly horrible it sounds without the right speaker. Bass speakers tend to roll off even mor highs, but they're otherwise quite similar.

The only real risk is running a bass into a guitar cab at high volume - the low frequencies can cause the speaker to over-excurse and damage itself, although it's pretty unlikely.

sorry, my mistake entirely. confused your statement with the multitude of threads asking if it's okay to run a bass through a bass amp into a guitar cab. my bad
