I'm looking for a new head and cab, but i have a question.

How do i know if the head will work with the cab? I know that it has something to do with wattage or Ohms or something, but I'm new to stacks, being as my only amp so far has been a SS Fender practice amp. Thanks in advance.

the ohms need to match up.

if you look at the spec for the cab, it should tell you its impedance, in ohms.

then you check the spec for the amp head, and check that its output can be set to that impedance.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

^ no problem!

oh, and if you're using two cabs (of the same impedance, that's important), the impedance at the amp is halved. something like that. it should explain that in the manual.

assuming you're only using one cab, though, you just need the impedance of the cab to match the head.

well the cab you get doesnt really matter becasue any decent head will adjust (viz a switch on the back to select 4,8,16 ohms.) all you do is flick the switch to whatever the cab is. and there you go they are now compatable.
