hey guys

for example: would a marshall jcm 800 50 watt all tube combo sound the same as a marshall jcm800 50 watt head + cabinet?

thx in advance

depends on the speaker in the cabinet. A combo is basically a head with a cabinet in the same housing.

oh thanks a lot
i've always had doubts that the heaD+cab would be louder
#4
it IS louder, the speakers give more headroom. The combo with one or two speakers is slightly softer and may sound slightly different due to different speakers and what not.

The speakers make a difference. For example, a Marshall TSL60 head into a Marshall AVT Quad has a distinctly different sound to say a Marshall tsl602 (2x12) combo. It all depends on how many speakers and what type (celestion etc)
