    As a returning student of electric bass I would like to incorporate using the Tascam GB10 to help learn songs and riffs at a slower rate. Is it possible to plug my bass into this unit and then plug the unit into the amp in order to hear both through a old practice amp- one that does not have much in the way of features.....

    thanks for the help!

    You'd need a 1/8"-1/4" adapter to come out of the headphone/line out jack. Someone more familiar with it than me would have to tell you whether you need a tip/sleeve plug or a tip/ring/sleeve plug, but it definitely looks doable.
  3. Or use headphones.

    +1 for headphones because thru your amp you are trying to put a stereo mix thru one speaker cab,and with the bass over the top of it , it may sound horrible. it will work though, try it.

    not a big fan of headphones....

    before taking a long break, I had a cassette deck that I played through a SWR Redhead, but
    it was a modern combo amp and what I have is not....

    The sound was fine, for what it was....

    Headphones will be your best bet. If you decide against them, the adapters you will need to make it work with your amp are very inexpensive.
