quick question. my friend just rang me from a gig, and asked if running his 4 ohm amp through a 16 ohm cab would do any damage. i know you lose sound fidelity, but would it damage the gear? head is a solid state marshall, i think the cab is a marshall 4x12.
thanks on his behalf!

it won't hurt a SS amp, you can mismatch as long as the cab isn't "below" the minimum rating of the head. Mismatched with a 16ohm cab, it will be pushing much less power than the listed rating at 4ohm however.
