Nooooooo you'll blow it.

Guitar amps only go down to an A note usually. A below E. Before they start to struggle.

Yea, but its not good for your amp.
You could blow the speakers
plus it will sound like ****
I'm FAT!

Yes, but dont do it at loud volumes. In fact, play at LOW volumes.

Bass damages guitar amps.

Wow, ftw.

But like everyone else is saying. It'll sound like ass and you will more than likely mess your amp up. Personally. I wouldn't.

A2, which is considered extremely low for a guitar (an octave below the A-string in standard tuning), is as low as most guitar amps are made to go to.

The A-string on a bass in standard tuning is A2.

Basically TS, it'll work, but don't play any notes below the fifth fret on the E, and even then, be careful 'cause it might damage the amp still...

It won't sound good though.

what happens when you play a bass through a guitar amp is the low frequencies move the speaker so far that it pushes the cone out of the tube that holds it

you can get a peavey max 126 for a measly $70. definitely worth it if you're going to get into bass, it's a nice little practice amp and it gets pretty loud.

It'll hurt the speaker is all. It won't 'blow up' or anything like that, it'll just damage the speaker.

It will not however, sound good. But if you have to hear what you're playing and you keep it low then it'll work until you can get yourself something else.

I've used a crappy 10W Yamaha starter amp (guitar) to play my bass through at times, but only out of necessity and the fact thats its a crappy amp. I wouldn't attempt it with anything thats of any value to you.

Um yeah well blowing an amp isn't exactly an scientific diagnosis but allowing room for colocalisms I reckon most people would consider it to mean that it had harmed the electrics in some catostrophic way.

The people who say it will blow obviously ain't tried it. I used a 65watt laney guitar amp as my band practice amp for about 2 years. It sounded fine...i even did recordings with it. Some bassists use guitar heads on bass cabs as well.

true... My bassist use it on an 10 watt amp and play it full volume all times . Though it did not blow the amp, it still sounds like crap
