What happens when i plug my bass guitar into a DIGITech RP 500( a guitar multi effect) then connect it into a ipod speaker with an aux cable or pug in a headphone.

Will there be any damages.

And what breaks when you play a bass thru a guitar amp? The preamp? the speaker?

The speaker die, and both made it sound horrible.

Just an experiment.

and besides, i'm going to a summer school in another country.

So i don;t want to lug my marshall stack and bassman on the plane along witth my 2 guitars and bass guitar do I?

so i have to resort to this option before buying a seperate bass headphone amp
#11
the bassman doesn;t do distortion that well with guitar. i tried.

and besides, the summer school won;t allow amps into the dorms.

but my question is whether anything will be damaged, speakers, pedals.
#12
iPod speakers most likely will be damages- they don't handle high volumes well, nor bass frequencies. Pedals shouldn't be damaged- whenever a guitar amp gets damaged by a bass, it's because the speakers can't handle the frequencies, not the electronic components.

I'm not going to get an acoutic bass, that will waste my Fender J-bass wouldn't it.

so if i connect the pedal into pair of headphones, it should be all right, correct?

Acoustic basses are normally a waste anyway

And yeah, you can just shove headphones into the effects pedal- the volume output won't be great, and tonally it would probably suck. However, if something does screw up, then at least it's just headphones as opposed to probably expensive iPod speakers.

my ipod speakers are actually cheaper than my headphones.

but forget it, i just called the summerschool up, apparently they have bass amps in their music dept. but i can only play "plugged in" there. so i'll have to put up with playing "acoustically" in the dorm.

Thanks a lot anyway.

Yes. Guitar effects completely kill the low end.

On the lugging amps around thing... you could just take the Bassman and leave the Marshall. Bassman amps were used a lot as guitar amps way back when.


the bassmans used back in the day were all tube beasts of amplifiers as opposed to the current solid state model that has the audacity to bear the same name
