For simple in-home practice, could I buy a decent 2x10 bass combo amp and hook a guitar effects pedal into it and play guitar through it and have it sounds at least decent? How would high-gain distortion sound on this?

I was going to buy a Vox AD30VT-XL for my guitar and an Ampeg BA112 for my bass amp, but if I can combine my money into something better than can do both well, for in home practice only, I might do that instead. Any suggestions?

my school has only a bass amp, so when i jam or practice for a show w/ people at school i just hook up my multiFX pedal to that and it sounds fine to me (for practice)

if you're going to be gigging at all tho, yes, you're going to want to invest in a proper guitar amp

how much are you willing to spend? (on either one bass amp or both a guitar+bass amp)

if you've gotta good enough budget you could getta bassman ( even though some say that they were actually made for guitar and the name was a hoax)

About $600, maybe $700 max on everything. Thinking of a good 2x10 bass combo with a tweeter, then a decent FX pedal. Will bass speakers put out decent sounding distortion?

My local shop has an all american made Ampeg 2x10 used bass combo with around 200W for only $399, so thinking about that with a good FX pedal. But my original question still stands, will those bass speakers put out decent sounding distortion?

If I ever do get good enough to gig, will buy better stuff, just want to minimize the space needed at the moment, so one amp with a small FX pedal would be better than 2 amps.

Hey I have a question right in this idea.... At present time I only have a Microcube.

I have been invited to Jam with some guys (bass player and Drummer) and of course my Microcube just isnt loud enough. I plan on getting a Traynor YSV50BLUE combo here sometime soon.

But in the meantime could I use my Microcubes line out to plug into the bassits spare amp? He has this amp

So it would be

Guitar---->pedals--->Microcube---->Line 6 Lodown 75watt bass amp

Or should I just Run straight into the bass amp. For pedals I have a Distortion and a Wah. I also have a Fish n CHips EQ. I have an RP50 that I dont use. Maybe that could simulate the guitar effect to send to the Bass amp.

Maybe:

Geetar-->Wah-->RP50-->EQ-->Bass amp

Thanks
