    I need to go jam with my band from high school tomorrow...well today. But my bass amp is at school, will my brother's peavey transtube 112 survive a couple hours of rock without me having to replace something after it has blown up?

    thanks,
    chris

    solid state i say go for it. Unless you start to hear clipping then stop. My advice turn the master volume all the way up then turn the drive up slowly until you either can stand the distortion or it starts to clip

    even though it's a guitar amp? I'm suprised i forgot to mention that.
     
  4. The amplifier itself will survive, but the speaker may suffer damage...bass frequencies can make the speaker repeatedly move farther than it is intended (called "excursion").
