Heya Mesaheads,

More that 10 years ago I bought a guitar and a Mesa Boogie F30 in order to start learning guitar but it didn't happen... until now. I have bought headphones to quietly practice, Audio Technica ATH-M20X, but when I hit the mute speaker switch on the back of the amp with the headphones connected there is still a low volume sound coming out of the cabinet... and that defeats the purpose of using headphones.
So the question is: can I disconnect the cabinet when the mute speaker switch is on mute setting or will that damage my amp ? Must I always have a cabinet connected no matter what ?

CHEERS!
Vis.

Seems like a malfunction. Don't know about the speaker question, I'll be interested in knowing this too since my F50 is behaving the same way.

Don't run the amp (or any tube amp) without a load, the output transformer can be damaged.

Most tube amps (opposite of transistor amps) can handle short circuit well, so using a jack where the
tip and ground is connected probably works (ask Mesa Customer support to be shure).
