Quick question:

Using a bass guitar with a guitar amp will spoil the guitar amp, right? So will using an electric guitar through an octave pedal set one octave down into a guitar amp spoil the amp?

That's something i always wondered about too. Guitar octave pedals are designed to be used with GUITAR amps so really there shouldn't be any reason why you can't do it. I used to do it a bit and it never hurt anything.

don't think so. I have a Whammy Pedal. It has a setting to go down 2 octaves. And a Dive Bomb with a Whammy Bar is 3 octaves down I believe.

Doesn't it have to do with the difference in pickups between guitar and bass? I think I read that on here at one point but I could be completely wrong.

I think it has to do with the longer scale of a bass adding far more 'low end' to the low notes.

You can play an 8 string guitar through a guitar amp too, and it's only 1 full tone sharper then a bass.
