Question Bass in guitar amp.

Can you play a bass through a guitar amp? I'm guessing not, but I just wanna know, cause it'd be cool to not have to buy a new amp if I ever get enough $ to buy a bass.

a few years back a guy at an old shop told me that it isn't good to play on it for one the tone, and also because of the cone... the cone is farther away in the bass amp than in a guitar amp is what he said
When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun. So once when I was six I did. The doctors didnt know if my eyes would ever heal. I was terrified. Alone in that darkness. Slowly, daylight crept in through the bandages, and I could see. And something else had changed inside of me. That day, i got my first head ache.

Don't, it will break your amp.

I did, however, play guitar through a Laney BC-75 for like...4 years, before I bought an actuall guitar amp. It sounded like ***, but worked ok.
This is my sig.
