    Hey guys,
    i've been using a marshall super lead and kustom 410. i like the sound but was kinda wantin' to bring the 215 back out. i'm not gonna blow this head am i? as long as the ohmage matches i'm good, right? by the way, the marshall is a 100w that has been converted to 50w with a solid state rectifier. thanks!

    Correct.



    Usually when an amp like this is converted to half power, its done by removing half of its power tubes. I believe that after this has been done, your amps corect ohm settings should now also be halved too. So you would now set your amp to the 4 ohm setting for an 8 ohm cab load, or to 8 for a 16 ohm load.

    Here's a link to the google search "pulling half the tubes guitar amp":

    (just sift through the titles/headlines and you'll probably find lots of others confirming my ohm setting recommendations for your situation)

    As long as the ohm-age matches or the ohm-age on the cab is higher (numerically), you're good.
