Hey guys

I im looking to upgrade from my poor old 10W practice marshall amp i got years ago.

Considering something like a JCM 800 or a Orange RVerb. I would prefer a head due to the flexability or using it if i ever play live with house cabinets.

When im at home i cant make much noise so have to play through headphones, so basically I was wondering can I use an amp head with headphones in some way?

And if a head isnt a good idea, when a combo?

I know some have headphone ports but these two dont so im looking for a solution!

Thanks

yes you can. you would need to get some type of interface or load box with a headphone line out...like this!

how does that work exactly?

i heard load does something to stop the head breaking and then the headphone part is pretty obvious.

Are there any bigger brand ones? im in the UK so needed something that it available over here

So just the amp head and that and im good to go?

Warning - the headphone tap sounds like shit.

If you want to practice with headphones, get a POD or an Axe-Fx. Dropping a tube amp down to headphone level just isn't worth it, especially since modeling technology has gotten so good. The interaction with a cab is too important, and the attenuation is so extreme that it just sounds awful. I've had some luck with a palmer PGA-04, but that's quite expensive and you're still sitting there cooking your tubes and running through a bunch of compression, and it ends up sounding like a POD but with way less flexibility.
