Right, this is just a quick question.

I current have one combo, and I've built a 2x12 cab. In the future, I'm hoping to buy a second head, to run along side my current amp. Can I hook both amps up to my cab and select between them with an A/B switch?

It should be okay so long as you don't run both at the same time

Generally it's not really possible; you need to keep a load on both heads to prevent them from breaking and a standard a/b switcher wouldn't do that, you'd need an a splitter box to split the signal from your guitar to each head and something like this: http://www.tonebone.com/tb-headbone-vt.htm

To keep a load on the head that isn't being used and provide switching capabilities.

Which head would you buy to run with your valveking and what speakers are in the cab?

If you have, say, Vintage 30s in there, and head head you're buying is less than 60 watts, you could wire the cab so one speaker is connected to each head.

EDIT: If the ohms match that is.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?
