I have a 60 Fender Rumble Bass Amp.
I was wondering if I could use my guitar with it.
And use distortion/delay/chorus pedals with it aswell.

Will this damage the amp?


Thanks.

It won't damage the Amp, but in advance, if you already know this forgive me for inferring your ignorance, however;
The frequency response will not be equal, but rather the higher the string is on guitar the quieter it is through a Bass Amp.

i was told distortion could wreck or screw around with the bass amp

but i guess thats only true if you're pushing the amp wayy too hard...

Guitar through a bass amp is fine. However, bass through a guitar amp can mess up the speakers. Any effects can be used through any amp though.

Thanks heaps.

So the higher notes won't sound as good as a guitar amp.
I understand that.

But I just wanted to know about the damage/
Thanks heaps.

yep, but you will want to keep it relatively quiet, you know, no more than about six oclock, just to be on the safe side of things. If you don't care about your amp, then letter rip, and it probably won't do any major damage. If any damage will be done regardless of your use of it, it will be small damage.

keep in mind, guitar > bass amp = fine bass> guitar amp = trouble

All true. I play through my peavey TNT all the time. No problems. Its sick though with a bit of distortion and some heavy power chords. I had a party and some friends brought their band to play. Their guitarist used my HSH strat with a SD's in it. 59 neck, JB jr middle, and 59 trembucker bridge. The 1meg volume dimed, so lots of highs in it. All played through the Peavey. It took it light a pro. My buddy was impressed. It chunked up nice and deep, but there was still enough treble to cut through on the solo. We played with the graphic eq a bunch though to help that out.

lol, ^

you could probably use your pedals to boost the highs, or use the amp, it sounds pretty heavy

Squire Strat (way sweeter than it sounds)

my bass amp is capable of an incredible amount of gain, without any effects.

For awhile Hendrix played through a bass amp with pedals.
There isn't anything wrong doing it.
I don't remember where I was,
When I realized life was a game.
The more seriously I took things,
The harder the rules became.
