The amp should be fine, right? running an ipod into the clean channel is fine?

As long as it is the line level, and not the power amp.

I don't know about that, but if you put headphones on the pickups of a guitar and play music it'll play through the amp... Does that help? haha

hey i discovered the same thing for myself accidentally!

ok to do with the topic, well start with the ipod really quiet, and then make it louder so you know the amp will be fine.

If you can do it with a bass amp. The speakers are more durable.

May I ask how you hooked it up?

Preach. Guitar amps aren't supposed to put out certain frequencies, ultra-bassy ones are among them. If you can, mess up the EQ so that a good chunk of the lows are taken out. It'll sound worse, but it's so that your amp won't later.

ipod ---> a 1/8inch to 1/8inch cable, with the male connectors on both ends, and then finally a 1/8inch to 1/4 inch connection into the amp

It's not a particularly good idea - it won't sound all that great and there's a chance you'll damage something.

Buy some speakers ffs.

I run my Ipod through my guitar pickups occasionally, and i havent seen any speaker deterioration, even though I usualy turn it up really loud. Yeah, its probably not good for it in the long run, but if you plan on getting a new amp soon and dont plan on using it much longer, you should be fine.

All the amps I have seen with CD in the plug is where the FX loop would be. The signal levels of an Ipod and a guitar are very different. If your amp was meant for this use it would have the CD input.

I do it all the time for playing along with backing tracks. Of course, I don't plug it into my KICKASS VALVEKING, but I plug it into my shitty-ass MG100. That's all that amp is good for. However, if you want a new affordable, awesome tube amp, definitely check out the Peavey Valveking.

I plug my Ipod in through a CD In jack, and it's seem to have had no effect so far.

Yes crappy MG :P
