Just wondering if there was any way to get my amp to just send the signal into a set of headphones rather than the amp speakers? I have a Bugera 333XL combo.

I don't really care too much but I can't turn my amp up very loud in the day when my mom's home (she... Is less supportive of me playing guitar than most parents seem to be). And at night I can't have it on, period. So obviously if I could just get a pair of really nice headphones and get my amp to just run the signal to them that would really help.

maybe you can stick it in a speaker jack in the back if you have one. unplug the speaker in the amp and plug in the headphones w/ an adapter of course. maybe itd be bad for the headphones, but i tried it once on my amp. sounded ****ty but did the job.

Does your amp have a line out?

If so just plug your headphones into the line out and that'll shut the speaker off.


EDIT: i just googled, get a 1/8 to 1/4 converter and plug your headphones into the line out on the back.


Nice amp by the way, what guitar are you playing through it?
Black Knight CF-60F Semi-Acoustic.

Black Knight CP200 (Red flamed maple).

Neck-thru 4 string bass.

Acoustic 6 string.

Still the Schecter 006 deluxe I love the amp, but now that I have the nice amp the nuances in the guitar's sound really come out. When I save the cash up I'd either going to get a Schecter Hellraiser 8 string or a custom agile 8 string if possible.

EDIT:

Ok, got the headphones to work thanks guys

So, what are some good sets of headphones? Particularly ones that I could be blasting away and the person next to me couldn't hear anything

Bose is high quality, but really quite expensive. Look at noisecancelling headphones then, if that's what your looking for. make sure you don't damage your ears lol.

There are some pretty cheap sony noise cancelling headphones that do the job. Aren't nearly as high quality as Bose (my dad has a pair of those), but they are decent.

EDIT: Sony MDR-NC6 is what I have, I think they were $35

Weber Attenuators make something called a weber headphone tap. You can unplug your speaker plg this into the amp and the nthe speaker so its inbetween signal wise then when you hit a switch the signal is bypassed to the headphone tap. (which has a headphone jack AND a dummy load so your amp isnt damaged.) Any other way would probably damage the amp somehow.
