On amps without headphone jacks, can you use the fx send or preamp out instead?
#2
No. Different signal levels and impedances. You might either fry the amp or the headphones.

Ive seen a lot of comments the say that the fx send signal is a line level output. If the headphones have the wrong impedance, maybe it could be run into a stereo with a headphone out.

some you can some you can't.

If you do, and nothing fries, it probably won't sound good. Much of an amp's sound comes from the power amp, cabinet, and speaker. You would be left with a very thin raspy sound.

The simple answer is "Yes", you can do this. It's unlikely to harm anything (it won't hurt your amp, nor should it harm your headphones).

That doesn't mean it's a good idea. It will probably only sound in one side of the headphones and it's not likely to sound very good.

Nothing specifically (some dude's fender). I like to buy cheap junk and play with it. It's a bad habit. However i am building a bedroom level amp with a zero budget and it helps to know these things. Also its invaluable to bank this kind of knowledge when you are on stage and something fails. So thanks 20 years in advance

(as arby said) you will very likely only get a mono signal, and it won't sound good because there is no poweramp simulation.

it wouldn't hurt you or the amp.

even on a lot of amps with the headphone out, it doesn't sound very good because for the most part, they don't have a cab sim on there, or just a bad one. the three amps that i have them that at one point or another i have tried were a randall combo a long time ago, a ampeg hybrid combo (actually really nice amp).

remember if it is a tube amp, you would need a load connected though.

have fun with it! i am a tinkerer as well.
