is there such a thing as a tube amp (with at least 10+ wattage) that has a headphone jack ???


this is becoming a real stretcher for me since i only have a few days until my birthday gift comes from Santa WB Claus :rofl: :D

the guy i talked to at the guitar center said that you won't be able to find a tube amp that has a headphone jack.. well.. for the most part, he's kinda right.. i've never really found any in the long search i have embarked on.. :shock:

but the one exception i do know is the Peavey Royal 8.. it's pure tube AND it has a headphone jack.. but it's only 5 watts, which is why i'm not too surprised that they were able to stick a headphone jack in it.. what WOULD surprise me is a tube amp of about at least 20 watts that has a headphone jack..

help please :(

please tell me of ANY tube amp above 20 watts that you know has a headphone jack..

need your finest expertise on this one guys.. :fingersx:

:hippie:

I read up on the Vintage Club 20, Jason if you dont get it I will! This thing looks seriously sweet and would be perfect for you. If for some reason you need more gain or maybe a more metal type tone, there are plenty of good dirtboxes that you could use in front. I really don't think you'll find an amp better suited for your situation, honestly.

+1

Tube amps are not exactly meant to be played with headphones...so those amps have gotta be one of a kind for that need. :hippie:

Trust me, I HAVE one of these things and I put a 12AU7 in it to cut BACK on some of the gain in it these things normally on five to six Gain is already Sabbath Zone I am gonna try another AU or AY to lower the gain on mine so I can have it near total clean around four with the master maxed out

You'll be much better off with used gear IMO. The speaker has probably already been broken in a bit and you will get much more for your money. I can't remember the last thing I bought new.

Man that thing looks pretty sweet, I just mightt have to bid on it!!! Nah, just kidding...I just bought me a vintage 2x12 cab, so I'm gonna be eating straight Ramen for the next couple weeks.

Jason, make sure you have some nice headphones to do that tone justice!!! :)

yeah i think the headset i have here at home is pretty decent.. when i plug it into the piano here at home, i can't even tell the difference when it's plugged in or from the speakers themselves.. :thumb: .. sometimes, when it's been quite a while on my head, i actually even forget that i'm listening to it through a pair of headphones :rofl:

:D

well it's not just buying it used.. it's also buying without actually even trying it out yet that bothers me most :D

hmmm... :hmm:

how much to have such a thing done? :wave:

do ya happen to know? :fingersx:

:hippie:
Different Techs are gonna have different prices Jason GO Grab the Crate or find another like it, NO You are not making sense on the buying new Every amp I have bought in the last five years was between slightly to VERY used
Crate USA, makes a GREAT Product , I dont get a penny from them for trying to sell you on this or any other amp I recommend, I recommend it beacuse I have either tried it, or in this case I own one and know other owners , NEW is not always better than used. especially if your budgets a lil tight

that sounded pretty darn sweet i'll admit :D

hmm.. :hmm:

how much is the 50w? :wave:

:fingersx:

:hippie:
The fifty uses the same tubes but DOES NOT have a headphone jack , Search Ebay though the 20 is GIG able, I have Gigged mine in small clubs before , and from the headphone jack you can go into the PA , or board for gigs if its not enough , or mike it but the tone is similar to the fifty since they all use EL 84 Tubes
