Well sure, you can daisy-chain the amps if you don't value the second amp or you could wire your cab in stereo with two inputs (if the impedance matches and the cab isn't sealed) but the kind of person that buys an MG head isn't the kind of person who can do this without funking it up somehow.

Whatever. Basically, if you need to ask, then don't try it.

so what you're asking is if you could use that head and your peavey through the 5150 cab, playing at the same time ? then, yes. but if you want to use them separtely aswell, you'll need the tonebone i mensioned earlier.


seriously dude, giving more than 2 lines of information won't kill you ffs .

If you end up getting a tube amp you won't even want to blend the tones. To be perfectly honest, I think you should sell all of your amps and buy a used tube combo. The money from selling the amps plus your $400 should make your tone exponentially better.

You could buy a combo instead of another head, & use a "Y" splitter jack to run your guitar signal to both setups & simply blend them using the volume knobs.
Another way that blends somewhat (only works if your amp has a preamp-out or line out jack) is using the preamp-out/line out feature into a second amp (you may also have to use a load box in place of a speaker for the first amp). You get the basic tone of the first amp, & can shape it with the controls of the second amp.

Would I be able to plug into a head into a combo like this?

Guitar -> amp -> effects send -> combo ?

I've heard some people say that this will work, but I haven't tried that way. Hopefully Roc8995 (Colin) or Erock503 sees your question. They've probably had some experience with it. I'd still always run a load box on the first amp anyway, unless you use a grounded jack (I think) in the slave amp's (first amp) effects return to kill the power amp section. Again, I'm not sure about slaving using effects loops (instead of line outs), because I haven't tried it.
