Virtual Jim Posted December 31, 2003 Share Posted December 31, 2003 I've been having a massive GAS attack as of late, and I really think it's time for me to get my first tube amp. I've been a strong supportor of digital since 98, and I'll still go on and on about how great my digital gear is. But after the Tubes vs. PODxT thread and seeing Cheetah Chrome play a flextone at the recent Rocket From the Tombs reunion tour and simultaneously hearing Richard Lloyd's rig, yeah... I think it's time. I've been browsing the ebay listings for JCM800 amps and got to thinking: Say I was to plug a 50W tube combo into a 4x12 cab at the proper impedance and not using the internal speaker, it'd sound the same as a dedicated head, all other things being equal, right? and of course... if I found a tube combo with additional speaker outs (i've seen this on solid state combos my friends have had over the years) and used this to power a 4x12 while using the internal speaker, would there be any less-than desirable effects? thanks and stuff Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
