ok so i was wondering how this would work.
the bassist from my band bought a line 6 spider IV, saying he wanted to use the effects on it with his bass. was this a good idea?

Kill your bass player, not only did he get a guitar amp for his bass(which im pretty sure you cant do), but he got a spider 4.

No it wasn't, watch for the speakers to blow out sometime soon. In fact it was more of a waste of that money than buying it for a guitar.

Dear lord, why haven't these been stickied yet!

*crys tears of pure anger*

Bass will ruin a guitar amp over time, trust me.
I was one of the 'It'll be fine' crowd untill my practise amp in my room suddenly started to generate it's own harsh buzzing.

I'm still using it, but that's because I don't care about a 15 watt Yamaha.

Tell him to run it through the Direct Output/Phones jack into the input of a bass amp.

It's not as uncommon as you think. Generally, it will be a much bassier sound than you would get from a guitar, which some people think sound awesome (such as myself). Bass amps cover the same frequencies as guitar amps do, only with extended low and lo-mid range.

Anyway, if he just wanted effects WHY WOULDN'T YOU JUST GET THE LINE 6 BASS SERIES? Tell him to return it to the store.

This. My Behringer sounds half-decent for guitar, compared to the **** that came out of it when I played bass through it.

Holy hell SEARCH ****ING BAR. Hell, even Google will tell you that it's a bad idea.

And why your bassist would use a Spider's effects is beyond me. I hooked my Spider up to my bass rig for laughs (I used the line out and ran it to my bass amp so I could bypass the speaker) and it sounded horrible.

Just to get this thread on somewhat of a relevant course...

I was playing through a Line 6 bass amp in the studio today (not expecting anything good), and if you ignore the effects section entirely... they aren't bad amps.

I mean, they aren't great by anyones standards... but I don't think they deserve to be barrelled into the same hate section that the Spider guitar amps are.
#13
True enough . . . but wouldn't it still be a better idea to take the money from a line 6 bass amp and put it into a better amp for the price? i.e. Ampeg, Galien Kruger, Ashdown, hell, even Fender.
#14
Surely this a troll? No one is stupid enough to get that amp and use it on the wrong instrument. If it isn't god help us all...

In the interest of a fair argument I shall provide the opinion of the average guitard.

He shouldn't get a line 6 for his bass, bass players aren't supposed to have effects, you should leave that for the guitarists.
Line 6 are excellent if he wanted to play guitar, although if he is a bass player he probably isn't good enough to play guitar and that's why he switched.

this, and you should have a really cool looking bass, but that's why you should buy it, because you shouldn't actually HEAR your bass.
