could you plug your guitar to your pedal to just a cabinet? or will you need a head or a preamp
#2
You probably need a preamp, unless its a REALLY small cabinet, and a hefty multi-effects pedal.

It takes a fair amount of power to push sound through speakers, so just get a pre-amp. Even if its just that little Crate Powerblock thing.

No. You need an amp, a guitar into a tubescreamer is definitely not enough to drive a cabinet.

^^Into a powerblock?
It should sound OK, but not anything good probably.

A tubescreamer won't drive a cabinet.

A preamp will not drive a cab, a preamp is essentially what his pedal is.

You mean a poweramp

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
