  • Bass thru a guitar amp?

    Sorry if it's a stupid question. I'm a guitar newbie and I'm thinking of learning bass as well. I'm a concert tympanist, so reading bass cleff and playing rhythms is no problem, so I figure it's not too far a leap. Do I really need a bass amp or can I get by with a guitar amp? I have an Electar Century 30DR for my git. Will playing a bass into it hurt the amp, sound like crap, or will it do OK? The female resident of the home is already complaining at the presence of the guitar amp...

    I'm pretty sure a bass through a guitar amp will break it the amp.
