I have a Line Six Spider 15 W.
I really want to get a bass, just not a crappy value pack.
Well, would it be possible to get a bass and plug it onto it?
If not, what can happend of I do?

Nope, you can't use a guitar amp for a bass. It could damage your amp, get a bass amp instead.

but seriously why is plugging in a bass to a guitar amp bad?

edit: and i mean any amp not just a line 6?

Because guitar speakers aren't build to handle bass frequencies.

It tears them apart.

I plug my bass into my guitar amp, but only for 5 minutes every day so i can get a distortion feel to it.

Is this killing my amp slowly???

Oh ok

I always thought that it just wouldnt pickup on some of the bass frequency, not that it would damage it

But thanks

No, since 99.99999034267284973892432.com% of guitar distortions have a high-pass filter before the clipping, meaning all those damaging frequencies are rolled off completely. This also means that your tone will be absolutely ****ing ****.

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..

15 watts for a guitar is like 5 for a bass...

Get a squier pack, you'll be fine. They've gotten pretty good.
Nope, no sig here.

I used to have a Spider line 6 15 watt - probs same amp - with all the little effects right? I put my bass through it and after a while it was never the same so dont bother!
