Can a combo amp like a Fender Blues Jr. be used as an amp speaker cabinet for another amp head.

Thanks in advance.

Don't think so. But, you can run some combos into a cab, making it a piggy-back stack.

Why would you spend $500 on an amp w/ one small speaker, when you could buy a larger cab for the same price.?

maybe he already has the fender, wants to upgrade to a half stack, but can't afford to buy it all at once?

It depends on wether or not it has an ext. speaker jack. If so, you're set. If not, you can get around it by opening the amp, disconnecting the speaker wires from the speakers, then soudering/otherwise affixing them to a 1 1/4" jack (a couple bucks at any guitar store).

-Edit- Nevermind, I had it backwards.

IMHO you'd want to get the cab first, so you can hook the amp you currently have to it, then buy the head. Going the other way around kinda defeats the purpous of having an amp head. Sure, you can do it, but it'll sound shoddy at best, possibly even sound worse then what you're playing through now.

as long as the OHMs match up, i think it can. as long as it's one of those amps that plugs into the amp.

So it can happen or it can't? The thing is, I'm trying to decide between the twangy blues sound of the Blues Jr and the snarl of a Blackheart little giant. I just thought if I could just stick that BH head on top I could have my cake and eat it, too.

It can potentially, but it'd be a waste of time because the speaker in the combo amp woulden't be able to give you the tone you'd expect from an amp head. It'd sound like a slightly different version of what you're currently using, not to mention it'd take some wiring to get it working.

Save up, buy a cab, use the practice amp with the cab, then save up for a head. If all you want is a little gain, buy a pedal and save up for the whole half-stack. It simply woulden't make much sense IMO to run an amp head through a tinny practice amp speaker when generally you'd want at least 2x12 Celestions.

Well, I meant if he was going to buy one.
