So I just bought a new bass, but I don't have a bass amp. Is it a problem if I plug it in my guitar amp (roland micro cube)?

Yes. It'll damage your speaker. A bass trough a guitar amplifier and bass speakers can sound great, but it's hit or miss. Just always make sure you have bass speakers when you play bass.

A bass amp won't cost that much so just buy a bass amp. It will also sound much better. Micro Cube has a small speaker and it's not the best at handling the low frequencies. And yeah, playing too loud on bass will damage the speaker (I have played bass through guitar amps many times and it hasn't done any damage to the speakers but I wouldn't suggest you to do it).

Just don't crank it, it will be fine.

I'd play it safe with a used bass amp. Those micro cube speakers are tiny.

The Micro Cube won't be able to handle it well, if at all. I have one, and even going into lower guitar tunings on it sounds terrible.

Get a used bass amp

Buy a bass amp.
If you do play through it play at very low volume levels and turn the bass down.

A bass will probably destroy a micro cube. Rip that tiny speaker a new one.

You can get something usable for $50. https://www.guitarcenter.com/Bass-Amplifiers-Amplifiers,Used-Gear.gc?ipp=25&o=1

+1.

far from ideal, but i don't see the harm. def don't see it imploding.

it might lack low end, but you'll be able to hear the amp struggling if you push it too hard.

I have played bass through Microcube at 1/4 volume (volume knob at 9 o'clock), nothing happened. But the sound is not the best. I don't have a bass amp and when I play the bass, I play it unplugged. Or then I use my multi FX. But if you want to play it through an amp, buy a bass amp. It sounds much better. The Microcube lacks low end and none of the amp models really sound good for bass (it doesn't have a neutral clean channel). If I remember right, the JC Clean sounded awful on bass, the only amp model that sounded good was Classic Stack (gain turned down). That gave me a Geezer-ish bass sound.
