Its possible, but you wont get any sound and you'll blow the tubes.

I think youd blow more then just your tubes. if ou try to play a head without a cab or any load you can and prolly will seriously f*ck it up

if you turn on an amp without a cab or loudspeaker it will blow the output transformer.

Actually, the tubes would be fine. The output tranny would suffer slightly, though.

And there's no reason you have to have the amp head sitting on the cab. Mine doesn't.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

You cant play one without a cab or else.

The guy probably had the cab off to the side.
