    I have been playing bass for about two years and i only have a practice amp. I was wondering if it is possible to play a 4 string bass on a guitar amp without like breaking it or whatever.

    Ah, the weekly "bass through a guitar amp" question. :D

    Initially, it won't hurt the amp. Your bass will just sound like a neutered goat undergoing a tracheotomy.

    Eventually, odds are the bass will either destroy the amp or blow the speaker(s) if you continually use it closer to its max power, IME, especially if your bass is active.
