    First post and newbie bass player :D

    Today I got a good deal on a Ashdown MAG C115-300 combo.
    However, there's no headphone output on this amp.

    I will be using the late evenings for practising, and I will definitely (otherwise, my cat will find himself a new home)
    be needing to practise with my headphones on.

    Is there any way I can be able to use headphones with this amp, even though there's no output for it?

    I guess, this could be a general question, since many of the bigger combo's seems to lack this feature.

    Straight from their website

    The only way is to buy a small battery powered headphone amplifier and plug it into the TUNER OUT with the amp MUTED, or unplug the speakers and use it plugged into the LINE OUT. Other than this if you have a walkman that has a record facility you could use this as a headphone amp.

    The amp will come to no harm with the speakers unplugged. It is possible to plug headphones into the speaker output but you risk the possibility of blowing up the headphones if you turn the amp up too far.

    :p I haven't even considered the possibility of finding a faq
    in the "acoustic" section on their website.....

    Thanks, Frijoles
