i may lend my little 10 watt practice amp to a friend for him to play bass on until he can afford a half-decent amp. it's i think maybe a 6 inch speaker. you think itll damage my amp? i don't really care, but i just want to know.

yeah, i think it will.

that little speaker is going to jump around and eventually pick up a buzz noise.

tell him to play it really really quietly, or else the speaker will do bad things.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

i dont really care.. that's cool. i have a frontman 25r for a practice amp, which i rarely use. the littler amp is the carry around amp, which will soon retire.

turn the treb up all the way up and the bass down. i heard les claypool actually plays through a marshall stack like that, but the case is different for this guitar amp if he can pick up a cheap speaker from an old stereo system from goodwill or something thats like like 12" diameter and runs your amp through that it will effect it less. bit otherwise cut out all the bass on the amp head as you can should help.

The amp does not get damaged FYI, just the speaker. But yes, the vibrations will cause the speaker to crack.

It would work if you were doing the opposite. Bass amps are meant to handle a wide range a vibrations. Guitar amps don't quite work that way. It might be fine, but it could blow the speaker, or worse.
