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.

This is just an overall review of these cabs as i have had several throughout the years . I had tried out two more this year . I will say i have never really liked closed back 4x12's every since my first cab - a mitchell 2x12 front ported cab . But , that cab was sold and i did what everyone else did , buy 4x12 cabs . I will say some were better than others ...i liked the peavey 400 watt 4x12 , and i had a carvin 4x12 that wasnt bad . When i tried the marshall 4x12 1960 a again this year, a new and used one , they just sounded colored to me . And what is funny is they are small . I guess 28 years ago they seemed big and bad but compared to others, they are small . But for sound they just seem very colored . I know the stock speakers are supposed to be relatively tight, but to me the tones arent there . But to be fair , all 4x12's are boxy to me. I searched and serached for a good cabs . Randall , Orange etc. Almost gave up until i found the genz benz 2x12 g flex . To me , speakers have to be able to move . If they are closed you get a boxy low end with alot of highs . Also, closed cabs are so directional that you have to be right in front or out in the audience to hear the direct sound . Ported cabs arent like that . They fill the room . It might just be a matter of taste but i have had several people comment on my genz benz cab sound . I think people use 4x12s because its " what you do " . Also, some say front ported are boomy and sloppy ...not true . They magnify how ever your amp/eq settings are voiced . I have a EVH 5150 3 s and its very mid voiced . So tons of mids come through my cab. I have to scoop the mids . So a front ported cab will magnify whatever you give it . I will say marshalls still have that look ! I will say the old greenback loaded cabs with a plexi or jtm 45 are still the deal for classic rock !

Almost Perfect Cab!

By ISoulfly

from Syracuse, NY

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

I've had the 1960A cab for about two weeks now, and I absolutly love it! I was using an old cheap Fender 4x12 previously and decided it was finally time to upgrade. I run a Peavey 6505+ amp and a Dean Razorback. Nothing compares to the sound that I found in this cab, expecially in it's price range. This is the perfect cab for metal, hardcore and hard rock, yet seems to versitile enough to play cleaner types of music as well. It is deffinatly worth the investment, and I can't see how anybody could possibly be disappointed with this product with a proper amp running it.

The best cab for Death/blackmetal,rock,blues jazz and clean channal stuff!

By Ghost

from Maple Valley,WA

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

I have the slanted 1960 cab loaded with celestion GT 75 speakers.I run it with a m-80 preamp and a mackie poweramp.I use a zoom g1 pedal and I wouldnt sound good without my Marshall cab.Its loud clear and punchy.Has Enough bottom end to satisfy the most picky seven string players too. Ive used fender,peavey,mesaboogie and Ibanez 4x12 cabs and they all suck when you turn them up loud.They have too much treble.The Marshall cabs have a nice even tone that can be loud as hell without bottoming out.Marshall was the first 4x12 cab made back in 1960.

If it's good enough for Jimi

By Geojett

from Florence, KY

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

What can a normal player say about the quality of equipment that was good enough for legends like Jimi Hendrix, Clapton, Allman, just to name a few? There is nothing I really can enlighten you about except to remind you that if MARSHALL speaker cabinets were good enough for these guitar "gods" to make some of the best guitar sounds ever recorded then it is certainly good enough for all of us "merely mortal" guitar player! The history of these cabinets speaks volumes. I love when I can crank these cabinets at full throttle and wild open!! I use either my Marshall DSL (50 watt head using one cab) or my Marshall 1959 (100 watt using both cabs) to their limits and allow all the tone possible to flow from these MARSHALL legends. You can experiment for years trying to find your best amp tone, the best guitar with the best pickups, the best strings, and have played for years to develop your UNIQUE tone, but if the speak cabinets cannot translate all of this into the signature sound that you've created then all this effort is for nothing. The best guitar players in Rock history trusted these speakers on stage so therefore I believe Marshall Cabinets will compliment any tone that "us mortal" guitar players can produce. In closing, besides being able to handle multiple OHMS settings, MARSHALL cabinets have another nice feature. If you are using a single cabinet, you have the ability to use two speakers. If you are using an amp head in the 20-30 watt range you can make the cabinet more efficient and have "tighter" sound by using the two speaker configuration. Set the switch on the rear panel to "stereo" (16 ohms). Then use only one input from your amp head. Go with history and go with the best...MARSHALL!

Just awesome

By Dan

from Thornton, Co

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

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

    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.

    Where have you been

    By Aaron

    from syracuse NY

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

    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.

    Nothing but the best!

    By Michael Neil

    from Roseburg, OR

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

    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!

    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!

    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.

    Awesome Guitar Cab!

    By Michael Wong

    from Boston

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

    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.

    Amazing for any genre!

    By Tyler DePineda

    from Atlanta, TX

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

    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.

    I absolutely love it!

    By Tyler DePineda

    from Atlanta, TX

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

    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.

    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.

    Nothin like it!!

    By MICHAEL

    from Lizella Ga

    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!!
