I thought I read somewhere it can screw the amp, but I dunno. Could just be my mates spinning bull****, which they do on a regular basis.

Nonsense to the above responses.

Guitar through a bass amp can sound awesome. Fender Bassman anyone? You often get amazing cleans but sounds pretty bad with distortion pedals and such.

it works, there won't be an electrical problem. I played my guitar with a DS-1 thru an old Dean Markley 100W bass amp for 2 years. Didn't hurt anything except my ears. It's playing a bass thru a guitar amp that can damage the speakers.

ok cheers everyone, helped a lot

\m/

Let me guess, are you looking to explore the tonal possibilities you'll get from the lower frequency range of the speakers?

Or do you just want do it because it's 350 watts

A clip I did months ago about the same thing. I'm playing through a tiny bass amp and it sounds really nice. Check it out. Particularly towards the end.

yeah definelty, guitar through bass amps do sound sweet, and ive found that they make actually make my pedals sound a hell of a lot better, while still getting awesome cleans. my favourite guitarist, omar rodriquez lopez even loves to play out of bass amps because they sound a lot fuller than even expensive gtar amps. i tried it myself and i agree with him. the only downside for me is that you have no controls to play with, so i just hook my combo up to my mates peavey bass amp

just dont play bass in guitar amp cause ull blow it...guitar will just sound like **** on the bass amp cause its not meant to play high notes
#14
actually high notes play as good as they should sound, i make grunge rock, but still the bass amp handles high notes great. u can always just get an eq if u wanted, but really just try it out, ull see what i mean.

Bass amp speakers have WAAAY more available frequencies than guitar speakers. Guitar speakers usually go up to 5khz, while bass amps can go up to 20khz. It's not that bass amps can't handle high frequencies, but that guitar is a MIDrange instrument, not a HIGH frequency instrument.

and THAT is why you dont scoop mids.

My guitar has never sounded better than when I run it through my Crate BT1000 Bass amp. It sounds oh so nice. And there hasn't been any damage to it either. As long as the settings on the bass amp are set decently, guitars sound wicked through them.

Hmm, well, Scooping mids is okay, as long as it doesn't go under 6 out of ten.
