Can I do this:

Guitar--->Effects Pedals--->Guitar Cabinet

So I'd be using pedals in place of a head, like a preamp. Is this possible?

No.
You need a pre-amp, a power amp, and speakers for any sound to be produced

If you had a power amp, yes. Without a power amp, you're gonna get virtually no sound.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

If you have a power amp, and a preamp of some sort, maybe like a Tech 21 Sansamp, then yes.

Use a run your pedals into a Crate Powerblock. 150w power amp, very little tone coloring. They run about $200 new.

Heres the details...


The Smokey Amp is the world's smallest and least expensive guitar amplifier, proudly made in the USA. It is also the single biggest selling guitar amplifier ever made! The Smokey Amp will also power any 4, 8 or 16Ω speaker cabinet, including 4x12s, and can even be used on the input of another amp as a fuzz box (watch the demo on this page!). It is available in three different styles shown above: a real recycled cigarette pack (brands vary), a translucent polycarbonate box, or the custom artist series. Visit the "Dealer Finder" page to find the Smokey Amp dealer nearest you. If you do not have a dealer in your town you may call us to purchase one.

The original smokey amp, invented by Bruce Zinky in the early 1980s, then improved in the mid 1990s to become our first product. We make boxes in many cigarette brands, but because of our recycling program, our stock changes daily. The only way to be sure to get "your brand" is to send us your own box. Nine volt battery included.

eh, i can plug guitar directly into headphones and i do get sound
and its not quiet


That's because the sound is directly blatsing into your ears...... then a couple of watts is enough, did you think mp3-players produced a 100 watt sound ???
