My 15R is broken, but I still want to practise with an amp, I have a Marshall MG100HDFX head, but no cab, it says not to use without loudspeaker connected, but would I be able to use it with headphones?

You shouldn't really use ANY amp head, tube or solid state, without a speaker or dummy load. And why on earth did you buy a head when you didn't have a cab, thats just stupid - you should have just saved up for a combo. But obviously you wanted a teh pwnz0rz uberhalfstack.


And sorry, but MGs DO suck

Obviously... I can't afford a cab at the moment, I'm building it up over time. And doesn't the headphone socket with headphones plugged in override the speaker?

Dunno, it's your amp, read the manual and see what it has to say about it.

^ But it's a bad a bad head and a bad cab, return the head and just save up more?

Although your sig tells me you're not going to agree

I read the manual of my Ashdown FA60 yesterday (I'll pick it up monday or tuesday) and it said "WARNING - Never run the amplifier without a speaker connected as this will damage the output transformer."

I know tube amps are much better & if I could afford one I would buy one but as I can't plus MG's with a decent overdrive pedal sound ****ing brilliant, I'm sticking with it.

He's right though,
Marshall MG's DON'T SUCK.
THEY REALLY REALLY suck.

He's only young I'm guessing, plenty of time to develop the perfect tone his ears will look for.
Stick him/her infront of a Marshall JCM600-800-900-2000 or and Orange Tuber of anysort & it'll switch his mind quick.

Mg's don't suck... I had the mothership of bad amps, the Mg10cd. and It's perfectly fine, but I wouldn't put down more than 150$ for an MG. but I'd try with headphones, because I can't see anything bad happening with your amp. And if it breaks return it. But dude, you gotta learn how to save your money.
#16
You will soon learn that MG's do not sound awesome and that their OD is crap, with no difference from a nice OD in front of it

But hey it wont be me loaded with that

The Marshall MG Head+ Stack = £180 + £170 =£350

For that he could get a 2X12 Peavey Valveking if he want's big and loud, or a nice valve Laney

When you put it like that, they are teh suxorz

MG10CD is possibly the worst Marshall ever made. I'm not going to risk switching on without headphones unless someone can guarantee me that it wont damage it. But it looks like there isn't a way, except to plug in a cab.

There isn't a way you can prevent damage to it without using a cab. But why wait? Just turn it on and blow it up, you'll be glad you did later.

Damn straight.


Or sell the MG's, 2 of the guitars you don't want, and maybe the pedal, and buy an Orange or a Plexi.
