I just got an acoustic amp for christmas (early present). Its like.. 30 watts , and my old amp is only 15. So its much louder and cleaner. So would it be okay to use that with my electric ?

I'd assume that the acoustic amp/speakers won't be able to handle distortion very well (if you're using a dist. pedal), but I could be wrong.

YES, its totally fine, you just won't be able yo get any amp distortion. My buddy runs a digitech rp350 with his acoustic amp and it sounds fine and it doesn't ruin the amp.

It'll work. Your electric guitar won't sound like what we have come to expect electric guitars to sound like but that isn't always a bad thing. Play around with it and see what you think.
Not taking any online orders.

The problem is that acoustic amps have too much high end(>5khz), which has never been a part of the elecrtic guitar sound and will sound weird, and BAD with distortion
#8
It shouldn't do any damage, but i've seen someone do this and it certainly doesn't sound very good...
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

This, pretty much. It will WORK, yes, but it won't sound good. That's because acoustic amps are specifically designed for the frequencies that acoustics produce, and that's not the same for electrics.

it nay not sound good at first but with proper EQing it will sound better

I know someone who was running his Fender through a little 15 watt Acoustic amp and it sounded fine, no distortion pedals, just guitar--->amp.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.
