    sure, but it may not sound very good, although guitar through a bass amp will probably sound better than bass through a guitar amp.

    i know a few keyboardists that use bass amps - that's not that uncommon.

    as for vocals/mics, feedback might be a problem, but other than that you'll probably be fine. i used to be in a band a long time ago where we would gig at parties and use my backup bass amp as a vocal pa when we needed too - acoustic head, 4x12" cab, worked for vocals pretty well, considering.

    now, as for hooking up that saxophone, that might be a problem...;)
  3. Never tried a microphone through a bass amp, but have used guitars and keboards many times without any problems, in fact with very good results.
    As long as the microphone does not feed back at very high volumes and perhaps damage your speakers, I would have thought it would be ok.
