No harm will come to you or your gear. The only thing that will suffer is your tone. It's never a good idea to use a guitar distortion on bass, regardless what Cliff Burton did. Guitar distortion pedals tend to roll off the low frequencies so the guitar doesnt sound muddy, and that really kills the tone of the bass.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

No damage will be done. Don't expect to have a good tone, though.

I agree. I tried with goggles, they do nothing.

it doesn't kill the lows if you up the lows on the pedal and down the mids slightly. i use a metal muff and i can get a really bassy tone out of it

http://www.digitech.com/products/HotHead.htm <-- there are no mids there. That will kill your bass. I've used a Grunge with my bass (same series) and it totally nixes the bass. I A/B'd my Fulltone against a Metal Muff and the Metal Muff simply didn't have the 30-100Hz kick a bass should. Sure, it had some 250Hz honk, but not the real deal. And besides, this is a medium-gain guitar distortion pedal here, not remotely Metal.

I actually have the same query. Is it generally safe for a bass to go through a guitar effects pedal or does it depend on which pedal it is?

An effect will never cause physical damage to an amp from 'incompatability'. The only thing that will suffer is the tone.

It seems so obvious when you say it like that. :|
