    We have a Fender Rumble 350 bass amp that is not being used. We are wondering if we can run our singer through it, without a PA system. Simply a studio microphone straight into the "line out".

    Might be redundant, but were new to music hardware and wanted to know before plugging anything in and risking possible damage? From what I've read, with a PA system its possible but just lower quality.

    Anybody know if its safe and possible without a PA system to run the mic straight into a fender rumble 350 bass amp?

    This post takes me back to the old days. Yes, for practice, you can do it. But not through the line out. You'll need a 1/4" end on a mic cable and go into the input.

    No, that's not how it works! The "line out" sends a signal from the amp to a PA system. It does not accept a signal from a microphone.

    Now, you CAN get an XLR to 1/4" converter and run the mic into the front input of the amp, but it may not sound like what you want.

    Line out is not for bass, mics or any instruments.

    Which microphone?
