I've got a Fender 2 Channel Twin (NOT the Twin Reverb, everybody always gets these confused) and it's great for what it does. My birthday is coming up and I got really great grades at easily the hardest highschool in my city and I've been saving up so I think I'm going to get a Marshall 1987x head. I was thinking about some stuff and I came up with the brilliant/not so brilliant idea of using my Twin as a cab for the Marshall. That would work wouldn't it? Theres a power amp input on the back of the Twin as well as a preamp out. So would I just plug the Marshall into the power amp in of the Twin? Would the Twin become, in essentials, a master volume for the Marshall so I could drive the Marshall hard and turn it down so my ears wouldnt bleed? What are some the sound drawbacks or other drawbacks you can think of?

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

You don't plug a head into a combo...

It'll work just fine. I've done this quite a few times - it's called slaving.

You'll need to keep a load on the head though.

but you said you were buying it......

anyway, i think you can as long as the fender is the same or higher wattage and the ohms match. you have to plug the head into the fender's speakers

Yea you can do it as long as the Ohms match up and the speakers aren't hardwired to the amp. If it were me I'd just sell the Fender and get a cab, unless of course you like the Fender.

actually no. the power amp of the Marshall goes into the Fender because there's a power amp in on the Fender. Sorry, if I got that mixed up on my first post.

EDIT: my bad...double post...

If you power a valve amp on, and there's no load on the output (like speakers or a dummy load), you'll blow the amp.

Yup, you can do it on SS amps too though.

What you need to do is disconnect the speaker from the combo, then plug it into the Marshall. Plugging it into the preamp in part will mean you just lost $2000.
