as i was playing my normal settings on my MT-2 and my peavey guitar amp, i started to notice it didnt sound as great as it used to. i brought my guitar, pedal, and amp into my local store and they checked it out. i was ruining the speaker due to all the bottom end i like. they had me try out tons of guitar amps, but even with a boss mt-2 and ge-7 i couldnt find my tone. then, to my surprise, they suggested a bass amp. i played on it, and loved it.

is there anyone else who does this, and is it normal?
will i have to continue to buy bass amps when the time comes for a new one, lets say i want a stack. will i have to buy a bass cab?

alot of guitarists use bass amps. The Fender bassman is a bass amp but more guitarists use it than bassists.

for a bass amp yes, otherwise it will blow the cab because the low frequencys of a bass amp require more room for air to be moved than the regular guitar amp.

no. but if you use massive amounts of low end you may want to port out the cab (ie cut holes in the screen and back)

Ummm are you sure about that? Im pretty sure its just the name. I mean, maybe it used to be a bass amp, but now im pretty sure its for guitar.

No its still a bass amp (the circuitry hasnt changed), but they just lable it as a guitar amp since that seems to be the main users of the amp.

Edit: dude your not supposed to have multiple accounts.
