Bass to Synth to Amp - Dangerous or nah?

Post by inkblot » Wed Jun 13, 2018 3:19 pm

I've had my eye on this rinky-dink Gakken SX-150 that's pretty cheap and could be a pretty easy addition to my setup, but idk if my intentions could go haywire...
My idea is to input my bass guitar into the synth, output to some pedals and into a bass amp (an old behringer, forgot what model). I've heard a lot of bass and low frequencies having the tendencies to fry stuff if not careful, so before I go waste my money on this, is it a good idea?

Nah.
I think trying to quantify music is one of the biggest wastes of time in the world, like discussing your favourite colour or deity or pizza topping. People should realise that and get on with their life.

Strangely enough, an amp designed to loudly reproduce distorted bass sounds will not be damaged by reproducing distorted bass sounds

Don't listen to guitar people about gear :chin:

As much as I've hated some of the Behringer products that I've wasted money on in the past, the Behringer keyboard amp that I've had for a bit has been pretty dependable. I will admit that the built-in effects DO suck. But, I had no use for them anyway.

Guys are there enough behringer-hate threads around here?
Seriously.

Digest the "there is no such thing as bad press" adage and move the fuck on!

Yeah, OP, you should be fine. Just remember sometime shit breaks anyway. Live a little.
