Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

You mean a Marshall MG head? You can use it without a cab?
I LOVE GUNS N' ROSES.

Yes, because blown up usually is the best option for MGs.

Well technically you can run a head without a cab if you run a dummy load and have it going direct out to somewhere else.
Sig What?

No, you can't use a head without a cab, much like you can't post on UG without reading the effing stickies, which would have answered your question before you even bothered to ask it.

Right, since you know exactly the amount of adrenaline coursing through my veins based on one internet forum post...You're good.


It's required that you read the FAQs before posting. It's a rule. It would clear up so many of these dumb questions.

Keep it up, man....I'm not sure if you think you're some sort of super-mediator or what, but I'm not actually angry or worked up at all, but if you keep telling me that I am, I guess I might as well be.

Without speakers it wont have any sound and a tube amp will blow without a speaker load. So the short answer a head unit without speakers is pretty useless.

he was right. you could have read the stickies before asking this question.

You can run solid state heads, without speakers, without a dummy load, without hurting them.



There's always a chance that something will blow...
but that wasn't the question anyway.
Heads don't have speakers.

Actually, what was the question? OP asked if an amp head sans speakers would be usable. It would be usable, as a footrest, decoration, or as some of the bright sparks already said, with a line out to mixing desk (with a dummy load or w/e).

Yes, but the point is that it's not usable by itself, which is what I really think he was getting at.

I only like hugs from women, and seeing as how theres a disproportionately low amount of women on this forum, a hug would probably actually serve to make me unhappy.

But thanks for playing.

Speaker emulators/dummy loads....
yes, they would work, but the point is that

A HEAD DOES NOT WORK WITHOUT DAMN SPEAKERS.
