I just purchased a 1936 2x12 cabinet for my DSL 100 head.I really needed something that I could move around without having to rent a truck. I noticed that everybody was trying to sell the 4x12 cabinets, and I believe they were having the same problem. Don't worry about not having enough sound, this baby packs a punch and is really easy on your back. Plus the fact that you get that great Marshall sound!
It does the job perfectly, sound is great and also the cabinet frame are very nice. It's a real Marshall. You are not gonna be disappointed. It Rocks!!!
I reciently purchased the 1936 2x12 to go with my 1974 50w MkII full size head. My 4x12 1960 cab is getting heavy these days plus most clubs I play have space limitations. I read good reviews of this cabinate so pulled the trigger on buying it. The look matched with my vintage head is very cool and a much smaller foot print than my 1960B Pros: The 1936 is well constructed, light weight and portable. The tone is fantastic with my 50w Lead head and also with my Vox AC 15 as an extension, and with my other heads. The Tone is smooth and rich with the punch you'd expect from a closed back Marshall cabinate. The speakers althought not Vintage' 30's or 25's or any ->special high priced speaker that celestion is now making these days are able to deliver the goods! So don't pay the extra high price to get those reproductions of the past unless your pockets are very deep. Cons: Marshall has always included covers, casters and a speaker cord with all their speaker cabinates over 25 past years, and now I find that these necessary accessories are all OPTIONAL'. There are even caster incerts but no casters. Now for the price you pay for this small 2x12 you can get a 4x12 cab so come-on Marshall step up include these accessories! You are not going to be able to buy them from Guitar Center or any other US distributor as they are not available period. I had to order my caster set PACK-00050 and cover 1936 from the Marshall Store IN ENGLAND and pay shipping to the USA. Summary: Great Cabinate - Great sound - Price is high, no accessories included. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a light smaller solution for your big'rig'. -g
I brought a 1936 from here about 10 years ago. I am 50+ and have a steady working band. This cabinet handles all my gigs. We do 50s' though 80's music covering most popular styles of the eras and today. It is not a boutique sound but a classic/modern sound. Cleans up nicely and rocks pure Marshall. This cab has been a work horse for me. It is expensive but has held up well. The tolex has been peeled and re-glued many times but keeps on trucking. At my age I can easily pick it up and tot it around. Now the exciting part. My main gigging amp is an Egnater Renegade 65. What a killer sound! I use to use a Marshall 410h but it sits at home alone now. I also use two eg 65 heads and run them into the one cabinet stereo inputs for special effects. The Marshall mic's up very easily. I use a Sennheiser evolution e906 Dynamic Guitar Amp Microphone (flat off center) and a 57 (off axis and off center) on it for the big shows and sound men love how smooth and consistent the sound is. I am selling my 1960s stacks and buying a new 1936 only because my current one is worn looking. ( I will recondition this one for backup) Final comment - No cabinet gives the versatility, sound and power compared to all other cabinets. Thanks for your time Prof C. Phillips
I've been playing classic rock since it was top 40 and this is a very easy cab to haul to shows. I play a JVM410 through it and it sounds outstanding. We play Trower, Skynyrd, Aerosmith, Stevie Ray, STP,etc. This cab sounds great for heavy classic rock.
I own 2 of these cabinets and I like them very much. The only downside to me is the speakers. I replaced them with some older Celestion G12-65 speakers I had from another marshall 4x12. I couldn't be happier. The cab is a bit (1/4" roughly) smaller than a marshall full size head which is strange? The rubber feet on my DSL don't line up with the skid trays, but the different style feet on my Vintage Modern sit in much nicer. Not a big deal but I would expect more from such a renowned company. If you are into heavy music the speakers will most likely suit your needs/style but if you prefer more nuances in your tone I'd strongly suggest swapping speakers. Otherwise a nice classic styled cab.
My touring band broke up and I had no need or space for my 1960A cab anymore. I wanted something high quality that could still pack a punch if I needed it to but wasn't quite as large. The 1936 2x12 was it. I play a Marshall TSL 60 head through it, and I'm getting just the sound I want. This cab even made a Squire Champ 15 amp sound good. I couldn't believe it. I've recorded in the studio with it several times, and I use it every Sunday morning at church. I couldn't ask for anything better for the price.
Not a big fan of 75 watters but mine has replacement V30's in it and now my 4x12's usually stay at home... although I do use '79 4x12 w/65 watters (hard to beat). Too bad Marshall only puts 75's in these because they are very gig-friendly for those of us who hate hauling 4x12's around... too many years of that. Better quality than the MC212s but there's a reason for that. Like all Marshall cabs, too many plastic parts to crack, break, etc... but that's their choice to meet price point I'm sure.Recommended ! report card - C+
i use this amp with a bugera 1990 and i think it achieves some nice raunchy tone. my cab is a few years old and i don't think anything changed other than the emblem on the left corner. build quality is great and it is quite heavy...not so much fun to lug around but not as bad as a 4 X 12 obviously. the gt12s it's loaded with i think are more suited for metal and are definitely not even close to what celestion has to offer. id love to try this thing with vintage 30s in it. it is also caster ready and it would have been nice if marshall included them with this price. overall i love the cab, it looks great and it's a true marshall. however, for the price new, i don't think it is worth it...i got mine at half this price in brand new condition so for me, it was a score...shop around, and consider replacing the speakers
This cab is amazing!!! I have owned mine for about a year now and gigged with it alot and it is still just as good as when i bought it. It is the sturdiest amp i have ever owned. It is also VERY loud for its size! You can get any tone you want out of it. I recomend this to anyone who needs a good sturdy amp to gig with and who needs great tone.
