I have had this cab for about 2 months and can say she really blossoms when cranked. I too run a Peavey 6505+ and although I can run her quite she can be a little ice picky and then when you get her up a little is when the bottom end kicks in. I have the 1960A, but kind of wish I would have traded her in before my 30 days for the 1960B which everyone tells me has more bottom end because of the extra cabinet space.

There are far better cabs out there for less money. If you have to have the Marshall name on the front, I guess this will do. The way to buy the 1960a and 1960b is USED. I've had a few of these and while good, see my comment about there being better cabs for the money.
It's a cab. Speakers and an input jack.
Could be better for the price. Plastic corners, plastic handles, super tiny internal wiring.
For $100 or so less, you can buy a Splawn which is constructed light years better (no particleboard backing!) and the wiring is soldered. All steel hardware! For an even better value, look at WhiteBox, Avatar.

The Randall XL series cabs are nicely made to!!

    Comments about Marshall 1960 300W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    Had a very nice 80's 1960B which I loved. I let it slip through my fingers. I went to Orange, Genz Benz GFlex 2x12's, Gflex 4x12's, I did the Mesa oversized Slant Straight, Framus, Avatar....and now back to a 1960B, though not the other one that I prefer, it still sounds essentially the same and I love it. Staying here this time.

      Comments about Marshall 1960 300W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

      Not all 412 cabinets are created equal. I was using a Line 6 412 cabinet with my Marshall JVM410H Head and didn't feel I was getting everything out of the rig. When I replaced the Line 6 cab with the Marshall 1960 412 the amp really came alive. It punched through the rest of the band and cleaned up my sound a bunch. If you have a Marshall amp, you need a Marshall cabinet.

      Comments about Marshall 1960 300W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

      I have a JTM45 running through this cabinet (the 1960A) and it gets unbelievable sound quality. Obviously because this cabinet has 75w speakers it is not optimized for overdrive or distortion, but if you're using this to play live anyway you'll probably be turned up loud enough that the 75w speakers won't hinder the gain. If you have an amp with a Master Volume (most nowadays do) this won't be a problem at home either because you can just turn the gain up and the Master Volume down. Otherwise, I'm getting all sorts of beautiful sounds through this cabinet and would highly recommend it to anyone considering buying it.

      Comments about Marshall 1960 300W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

      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!!

        This is my first large cabinet, I've owned smaller cabinets in the past and decided to upgrade. I'm glad I did. I paired it up with a Marshall 100w valvestate head, and can take it up to full volume, and still have great tone. Overall it's been a great cabinet. Looks great too.

        Buy it if you can afford it... nothing with it so far.

        By JAMES SAVINO

        from Rochester NY

        Comments about Marshall 1960 300W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

        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!

        Amazing Cab

        By Devin Zorn

        from NRH, Tx

        Comments about Marshall 1960 300W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

        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.

          Comments about Marshall 1960 300W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

          I purchased the 1960A from my local music store and wow. When I tried it out I connected it to a DSL 40C. Even at the 20 watt setting this cab is loud, but what a sound. When I got it home I paired it with my TSL601. This is the Marshall tone I have been looking for. I can't use it in many of the small clubs I play but, the outdoor events will now be better than ever. I was afraid of the brittle sound many described in their reviews, I did not experience that at all. The crunch and distortion is pure Marshall tone and the clean tone is fantastic. If you are looking for that extra punch/tone that your combo isn't giving you, try one of these out. My next test is to use only 1/2 of the cabinet to tame it down for smaller clubs.

          Great sound and great look.

          1960 Marshall Cab Angled

          By Michael Haywood

          from Georgia

          Comments about Marshall 1960 300W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

          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.

          This is the only way to play! It's a little heavy, but that why you've got casters and roadies. This cab was made to rock with Marshall heads like my DSL100, the go to rock amp. They match perfectly! The 1960A is just a little brighter than it brother the 1960B and if you can afford to get them both, you won't regret it. I've read where people say "buy them used". I think that crazy, you never know what the last guy did with a used one and I've never seen one that was that much cheaper than a new one to make it worth while. Save your pennies boys it's worth it!
