Default Good idea?

I was wondering if hooking my electric violin to my guitar amp is a good idea or no. Thats probably a stupid question but i had heard somewhere that doing that with an electric base would burn the amp up.

It would work fine. It may give you a different sound but if you like it thats all up to you. A bass should really never be played in a guitar amp just because there not build to withstand the lows a bass has, therefore probably busting your speaker. Technically you could but I wouldn't recommend it.

Yes, you shouldn't have issues with a violin on a guitar amp.

Might want to be careful at first. Turn down the volume, turn off any effects, etc etc. Start quiet, see what it does. I imagine that feedback might work differently, watch out for that.

You'd say an electric violin gives the same output level as a guitar/microphone.
Your amp should be just fine
