you really need bass amp for bass. or ur speakers will eventually pick up a rattle or worse.

no, it wont be ok. a bass through a guitar amp is going to eventually cause problems. you can completly mess up the speaker and other parts. just buy a cheapie used 15w bass amp at a pawn shop or something if you are strapped for cash. dont risk damage to your amp because you dont want to shell out a few bucks.

Get a Peavey microbass. I own a bass that I play every now and again and the Peavey is well-priced, reliable, and is loud enough/sounds good enough for jamming with at home.

a guitar usually ends up ruining and breaking an MG, so im sure that a bass running through it would kill it.

Yea you should play your bass through that gear. Play loud too.

I have to say that you'll really be hard pressed to destroy a decent speaker with a bass guitar.

Do you honestly think a 8" 'bass' speaker out of a cheapie amp is any better than the one in an MG? I don't.

Like I've said before, it doesn't really cause any real damage unless you're pushing alot of wattage or volume through it.

^ i always got the feeling that over time the speaker would really deteriorate. sure a cheap bass speaker isnt going to be better than the one in an MG, but i would much rather mess up something i got for $30 than my main amp. hey, if im wrong, thats fine and ill shut up, i just dont think that its a good idea.

You can use the guitar amp, quietly.

If you want to play loud you'll need a bass amp, or if it's a MG head you have, at least a bass cabinet.

Its not a great idea, and it has been known to screw things up every now and then but that's mostly attributed to people using a 30w guitar amp with a bass at band practice cranked.. You're right about screwing up a $30 amp rather than your main rig, though.

There are different kinds of speakers. You realize that right?
