    A friend of mine plugged into my Ampeg BA-112 last night and started to play. Sounded pretty damned good. Question: will this hurt the electronics in my amp? Alot of bass amps have a CD input so it shouldn't hurt it, right? I remember reading somewhere that Eddie used to jam thru a Bassman. If it doesn't hurt it, maybe I'll just let my son jam thru my Ampeg until I can afford to get him a half-stack. What do you think?

    BBB you'll have no problems with your son using a bass amp for a while.

    Shit I even practice bass through my Marshall sometimes, except you can't push it hard with bass.

    Homeunit's absolutely right. Won't hurt the amp at all.
    Early Marshalls were originally made as bass amps, but guitar players used them for their punch.

    Cool. Thanks for the info guys. I take it a guitar effects pedal won't hurt either, even to an amp that doesn't have an effects loop? He wants either a BOSS DS-1 or something similar for Christmas. Thanks again! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    No, the pedal won't be a problem either. You always want to put a distortion or gain pedal in the front of an amp anyway, never through a loop.

    I run stereo effects left into my Marshall and right into a bass amp to give it extra punch and warmth. Sounds awesome! YOU GOT IT!!!
