I have a digitech gnx3000 and a kustom practice guitar amp. Lately, I have been thinking about getting a bass and was wondering if I ran it through my effects pedal (which does work with bass, i checked the manual.), will i need a bass amp or will I be ok with my guitar amp since its running through the pedal?
The lower bass frequencies would still cause damage to the amp, I'd only suggest this method if the amp is expendable.
my amp's a piece, and i do the same thing you are thinking of doing. and so far, so good. it'll probably f-up our amps, but better than nothing
i did it for a while, needless to say, the amp is in the trash
Thanx for the advice. I plan on getting a new amp at the start of summer for gigging so I wanted to know if I would be more interested in guitar or bass for playing in bands.
hold on a sec here. I don't see how guitar amps can't handle the frequencies of a bass. If they couldn't handle them, then people wouldn't be using octave down pedals, right?
