    Hello All,
    I play my warwick 5 through a crate bx50 amp. I dont use any pedals. I also play a number of different guitars through the same amp but also usually through a Digitec RP-200. I am wondering if this is going to damage my amp. I usually play through the amp pretty loud especially when i gig. (yes i gig my guitar through a bass amp :rolleyes: ) any informatiuon about this would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks
     
  2. You should be fine. As long as the amp isn't clipping, you should be fine.

    The rule of thumb is that you can play guitar through a bass amp, but not a bass through a guitar amp

    BTW, I am frying my Danelectro practice bass amp with my tele, but it is because I play it way too loud, and the speaker is getting fried.

    I guess my post really didnt help much, but you should be fine.
