I bought this cabinet about 6 weeks ago from Guitar Center. Since January 2014 I've bought a Marshall DSL 40 amp and a new Fender Stratacaster in the satin finish. I've had a Gold Top Les Paul Standard for 3 years now and both of them sound fantastic through the amp and cabinet. You can put it on 20watts around the house or 40 watts for gigin The cabinet is something I'll never have to change. Heads come and go as do guitars, but this cabinet is something you'll never have to change. It's powerful, well built and has the cleanest, crunchiest and all around best sound you could ask for. A lil expensive, but you can wheel and deal on one and won't regret buying it ever. Get one, you'll see. Play one and your done!!
I bought this cabinet, along with a Orange Dark terror head. I got this cab because it was a Presidents day sale, bran new for an awesome deal. I could not resist, however these things are still expensive. You are paying a bit to have the name "marshall" slapped on the grill :). I must say the cabinet looks very nice, seems to be built real sturdy and is big, so you get a nice big sound out of. I always wanted Vintage 30s or Eminenece Governor speakers but man, these Celestion G12T75s really do sound great, I don't see a need to go out and "upgrade" to vintage 30s. These kick out some awesome harmonics, and the bottom end is great. The Cabinet just sounds "big" and comes with casters. I bought the straight cab, not sure how much better or worse the angled one is. Always wanted a "half stack" finally own one and got it for a great deal. This thing just plain sounds awesome, just as good as any of the other big boys out there. Most of the other high end 4x12s are more money simply because they come with Vintage 30s, or greenbacks, heritage 30s or whatever, which are real expensive, but in terms of construction, wheels looks and sound, it does not get much better than this, as far as non ported cabs go. The tweed on the front is very easy to damage, an the tolex will rip if your not carful, but they both look sweet. By the way, Orange dark terror through a Marshall 1960 lead, a guitar with EMGs on it=Orangey/Organic/orgasmic/metalic explosiveness!
This cab is awesome! The 75 watt speakers are low enough wattage to have break up a bit when cranking your amp, but high enough for the low end to be pronounced. Perfect amount of spongey sag. put a Blackstar HT20 head or maybe an Orange or Mesa Boogie on it and it sings.
This is the third Cabinet I've owned in the past 25 years. Nothing beats it. I play Marshall's JVM's 410 & 210 series Amp heads, and the new DSL 100 through it. All sound great. I also play The Soldano SLO and a Line 6 Head, likewise, all sound outstanding. You won't regret buying this speaker cabinet. Especially from Guitar Center. I shop around everywhere. Go to Guitar Center !!!!! Also if you buy online versus going into the store for items like this, you really can't beat Guitar Center for shipping prices, availability and speed. Great Customer service.
I received one of these cabs as a gift from a friend back in August, 2012. I didn't have a head to run through it until Christmas, 2012, which I received an Ibanez TB100H, while also playing a Squier Strat. Granted I had some doubts because it was a used solid-state head, I was surprised with the tone I got. A couple of weeks later I bought an ESP F-50. I am just appalled with how much gain I realized the amp had by just using humbucking pups. The 300w power handling is an added plus as well! I'm able to turn the head up and still have insane clarity. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
I have had one of these bad boys for about 6 months now. Up until Christmas, 2012, I was running a Line 6 POD XT through it with a Fender Strat. Don't get me wrong, it sounded amazing, but because of the POD, It wouldn't get very loud. Then I got an Ibanez TB100H for christmas and then an ESP F-50 a week later. I will say that my rig sounds almost good enough to make me not upgrade to anything else. I play a lot of different kinds of metal, mostly like Lamb of God or Job for a Cowboy, in Drop C tuning, and the tones I get are just brutal! I would definitely recommend this cab to a friend if they asked me. I've always been a fan of Marshall and they have never disappointed me.
This is an awesome guitar cab. When hooked up with a Marshall MG100HDFX and an Ibanez TS9, the distortion that can be produced sounds just as good if not better than if the amp had tubes. The frequencies are pretty flat except the mid frequencies are a little bit scooped. That's good, because I want low brutal riffs and upper fret stuff to be heard clearly. For those who are starting out with guitar and don't care about the condition of their equipment, try to find a good deal for a used one of these. This is also a professional guitar cab. Most professional Marshall cab users use these.
I have had my Marshall 1960 Lead for a while and there is nothing like a Marshall in comparison to tone and raw power! I have had this paired with line 6s and Marshall heads and it can take anything you throw at it. The cabinet has been through hell and back and can keep on blasting out sound! Definitely for anybody who is playing for fun all the way up 2 pro full on concerts. Like they say Marshall or nothing all the way!
This cabinet rocks I emailed marshall and asked for a good way to run this cabinet I have been playing through a marshall mg250dfx (2 12's 100 watt combo) and the guys at marshall said to throw that on top of the 1960 a and they were right, phenominal lows and super highs mids are great I must say dont stand in front of the cab playing, stand back as far as you can I have pro link monster cables and a 21 foot one works perfect to hear the sound and as one user said the people in other rooms hear all the differences as well. I am running a digi tech jam man 2 loop and boss metal zone and a dime wah and zoom efffects board and pedals as well , I spent money on all high end cables as well and that really makes a huge difference as always to sound and noise I have very little issues coming from the cab with all these hooked up. This cab can handle anything from metal to rock to blues to grunge , this cab is perfect for a serious player wanting the best, I have ESP's with the emg combos both 81/85's and 81/60's as well as les pauls and hagstroms this thing just picks up on the guitar and you can really make them stand out. Buy it you wont be disappointed.
It has all the lows, highs and chest punching mids that you would need. If you need more lows get a bass player. The highs and mids react to my Blackstar ht-100 very well. I can get the lovely marshall tones and it does awesome british boutique cleans very well. I had to eq the treble down a little bit but thats perfect
