There really is no way to mess it up by plugging a bass into it. But seeing how you're the one with the bass and the tuner you tell me . . . Can you tune a bass with it?

Have a manual?
If you actually took a look at it, you might notice the part that says it can be used on 4/5/6 string bass.

just makes sure that if you do plug the bass in, keep the volume on your bass around 7. Depending on the output of your pickups, the extra low frequencies may hurt the internal electronics. It will still tune great though! you just have to watch your lows.
