i meant i have a pod x3 live, and an orange amp.(not bass amp)

m willing to buy a bass , so can i plug it into tht amp via pod x3live ? i have seen some bass patches are on pod x3.

Nope.

Any bass through a guitar amp WILL blow it up. How you do it doesn't make a lot of difference...

To be honest, you're better off buying some decent headphones and just using your Pod X3.

Er, he did say he would plug into the X3.

X3 = Yes, that's probably fine.

Guitar amp = Nooooo.

Jason Newstead practised without an amp when he first started out, one of the reasons he used a pick and had such a hard action so he could hear the bass without an amp, use headphone and you will be fine.

There are multiple cheap options of headphone amps for bass, try getting one.

Using the X3 with some headphones works, i mean, my bass worked good with my friend's Live POD and my Pocket POD pretty much alright without problems c:

Eventually, but it's not like the second you hit a note it's going to explode.

I played an entire band practice through my Marshall half-stack and nothing happened to it.

Also, Lemmy used to play through guitar amps (not sure if he still does or not).

No, but it's not exactly doing the guitar amp any good. You may as well burn the money you spend on a guitar amp if all you're going to do is but a bass through it.

If you play at low levels and exercise common sense, you could play through the guitar amp.

Billy Sheehan still practices his bass with no amp. If it works for him, it will work for you. Save some money, get a decent amp when you can afford it, and in the meantime work on your chops. That way, you'll sound better when you finally get your amp.

When I didn't have an amp, I did this all the time. It can only help you, not harm you. Some will say though that without an amp, you cant truly hear whats going on, or if you're out of tune or blah blah etc etc.

You'll be fine practicing without an amp, but obviously, practicing with one is a bit better imo.
