Hey, I'm trying to buy a bass off my friend, but I don't have enough for the amp. Will the PODxt I have for guitar work with the bass? I understand I probably can't put effects (that actually sound decent, anyways) on it, but will running it into the POD and then to the speakers suffice for playing?
Probably. The modulation (chorus, delay, reverb, etc) will most likely sound fine. I'm pretty sure it has bass modeling, either way. Don't expect the distortion to sound good, though. Using guitar pedals for bass will not hurt the pedal or the amp, except in the case of things like fuzz, distortion, etc. it can sound pretty gross.
I'm not sure it has bass modeling, good to know about the other stuff, though. I kind of assumed that about the distortion
