i plug in my guitar to my bass amp? i didnt know where to post this, but i figured its about the amp mostly, so i posted it here. if i plug it in to my amp will do anything bad to the amp? also, i have a zoom bx pedal, (i think thats the name of it anyways)and i have it plugged in with my amp, and i use the guitar with it. will it damage the pedal?

thanks in advance.

You will be fine with all that. Ive filled in on guitar for a few shows using my bass amp. Its not going to do any damage, but never a bass into a guitar amp. There are some blues players that use bass cabs for the clean tone out of them. Just eq the amp right and it will sound fine

Ever heard of Fender Bassman? A bass amp used mainly with a guitar So shouldn't be a problem, no frequencies which can hurt it (as in a case when using a guitar amp with bass)

Absolutely fine. And as said before, it will give your tone a much more round and warm sound. Blues players dig it.
