I might be the only one but I was very surprised that when I plugged my hellraiser into my B200 using a monster bass cable that the cleans sounded alot better than that of my valveking, quite bluesy and a rich sound

I've plugged into a friend's Ibanez starter pack bass amp and it blew my old line 6 spider IIIs clean out of the water.

Perhaps it's the extra bass response. Valveking speakers aren't very good, so maybe you aren't used to the clarity.

...valve king is a peavey amp.

I'd say that a good bass amp can do cleans really well. but the valveking will give you the tube overdrive. new speakers are somewhat of a must in a valveking combo from what i hear.

I run my Ibanez rg prestige into my peavey bass amp btw. great cleans. with a good distortion pedal i could probably get a great overall sound. i was looking into guitar amps for a while but my money situation made that impossible. I'm glad. I've come to really love the tone i get from my bass amp.

Well, it's got the added bass response, plus a tweeter and the (albeit only slightly) improved signal path thanks to the Monster Bass Cable, so yeah, it'll sound better. I just plugged my guitar into my bass amp tonight and was very pleased. Also, I saw a band not too long ago whose guitarist ran into a vintage Fender bass amp, which actually was not a Bassman.

I feel like a basstard, what is this thread doing in the bass forum?

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

^^He's talking about how his guitar sounds better clean through a bass amp, which is one of the five or six topics that keep popping up around here. Watch for three more threads on this same topic in the next two days.

I understand that. but unless he's (inadvisably) using a guitar through a bass amp to play bass, I'm not seeing this as a bass forum thread. EG.

I find it does make nice cleans.

I think it's a fair topic for the bass forum. We could use some excitement around here, anyway.
