Using a guitar multi-effects for playing bass

Hi, I have a question:

 

I've been offered a Boss ME-8 as part of a payment. Of course I will try it to see if I like how it sounds, my doubt is if it can break or something because of the low frequency of the bass. Is it ok to use a guitar multi effects with bass?

 

 

btw, I play an Ibanez SR-405 with a Hartke HA5000

 

thanks!

Untill fairly recently thats all bass players had available was guitar effects. The newer guitar effects units can do lower freqs better simply cause their now more often made to also accomadate 7 string and down tuned guitars. Of course some guitar distgortions etc work better with bass then do others.. Purely case of try em out. A good eq section after distorion/overdrive can help restore low end. Though not as well as one with lower bass freq sliders.
