can you play a bass on a electric guitar amp? if if not why?
yeah you could but it would sound like shit and you could easily blow the guitar amp. your bass wont have much low end but you will have highs and midrange
you can but its not the best thing to do...
Don't do it the bass' frequency will blow the guitar amp.
It's alright to play on very low volumes, but Guitar Amps aren't designed to handle the low frequencies that basses dish out. Better safe than sorry; buy a bass amp.
Put it like this: if you play a bass through a guitar amp (blowing up or not) and another guitar is playing, you probably won't hear the bass at all. It's even worse than playing a clean guitar with a distorted guitar at the same time.
I actually tried that today. It's almost painful to listen to a distorted fretless bass guitar. However, if you're not too concerned with blowing the speaker, then you can get some nice treble out of it.
i should take a sh*ty guitar combo and blow it just for the fun of it
We should really have a FAQ..
