    What's the difference between these two? Can one be used for the other and vice versa?

    give us some examples too!

    in general, yes, but they might not always sound as good for the other instrument than they were designed due to frequency differences.

    and you definitely DON'T want to run a bass through a guitar speaker, especially at high volume. it could ruin the speaker!!!:eek:

    You could run a wood chipper through my F1-x and it would sound pretty good. I think it qualifies as a guitar preamp, since it came out of the Showman amps.

    I have used a crate 60 watt guitar head with great results before. The preamp actually works really well for a 4 string. Probably wouldn't be good for a 5 or more, though.
