Excellent tone

By DeadHead

from Corte Madera, CA

Comments about Marshall 1960V 280W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

I have owned a 4x12 Marshall years ago and loved the tone then. The output level definitely is like owning a sports car for town driving though. Once you get mature enough to squeeze the tone out without clearing the club (or stage), it is a glorious thing. This 1960AV that I just received arrived in perfect condition and gave me back the town I was looking for, for a new band project I've just joined. The cabinet is large so you'll have to adapt your toting regimen. I got the slip cover to limit the abuse. I couldn't be happy with its sound. I have tried the 4 ohm and the 16 ohm (with amp set accordingly), and prefer the 16 ohm setting. Maybe that has to do with less amplifier output transformer saturation. Once you learn to tame the ferocious nature of this cabinet, you will elicit some really sweet tones. Have fun.

    Comments about Marshall 1960V 280W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    This cab is pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for. The sound is just great. It's ballsy and it delivers a great and clear tone. Its sound it's simply powerful. You can tell the difference between the 1960av and other cabs. The sound is round and nice. It doesn't get muddy. There's a lot of definition when playing chords with a high gain amp such as the 6505+

    Normally I only use distortion but when using cleans it gives you a great tone as well. Nice and warm tone.

    I'm in a melodic death metal band. I'm running my 6505+ with a Les Paul Standard tuned in B and I'm also using a tube screamer TS9 and a G string ISP. I think that's the basic set up I need to play metal.

    When I first got my 6505+ I was looking for a cheap 4x12 cab because I didn't have the money and also because I thought there wouldn't be so much difference between cabs as long as they had celestions. But how wrong I was back then. My first cab with the 6505 was a 4X12 Blackstar HTV with celestions. I don't know if this cab sounds good with a blackstar head but it didn't with the 6505. The sound was trebly and it varied depending where you were standing. The other guitarist in my band had the 6505 with the original 6505 cab and his sound was more ballsy.
    Then I got a used 1960av and from the first chord I played my mind was blown away.

    I needed some money back in the day and I had to sell that beauty but finally I got my brand new 1960av and I couldn't be happier. Even the other guitarist decided to go for it and sell the 6505cab.

    I've never tried the 1960lead though, but I don't feel I need to try anything else with the 1960 vintage. If you're not sure about it you can check out a video on youtube about the difference in sound between the V30's (1960av) and the G12T-75 (1960a Lead)

    I think the G12T-75 Sound more scooped and kind of artificial. Almost as if it was a digital distortion.

    So the bottom line is that you should see this cab as an investment in the quality of your sound.

    By Bobby Cook

    from hanford, ca

    Comments about Marshall 1960V 280W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    i play this cab threw a marshall 210h. the sound.. i cant even put into words. ive played for 10 years threw a lot of hi-end cabs. this beats all of them hands down. you can crank up the levels and still get a nice crip sound. they handle anything you can throw at them and still sound amazing! after purchasing this cab.. i traded all my other cabs in and got another one! they are well built, a little heavy but the casters help out greatly. they are worth the money! every cent!

    Comments about Marshall 1960V 280W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    I have owned this cab for about 6 years. And let me tell you, this thing can take a beating it has been all over america in many clubs and venues and it still holds up years later. This amp screams with a nice rich, warm, bright and full bodied sound. This is definately another testament to why Marshall is the powerhouse that they are. Great work.

    The ONLY 4X12 you'll ever need !

    By Dr. LaRrY

    from Winston-Salem, N.C. USA

    Comments about Marshall 1960V 280W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    I've owned many speaker cabs over the years and always end up back to Marshall. I own a 100w JCM900SL-X and a 50w JCM2000 DSL and a Mesa Boogie Roadster. Each of these has a different tone thru it but none are bad. The DSL really shines thru it tho and my Mesa takes it to sonic mayhem. My 900 sounds better thru 2X12 I think. The Celestion Vintage speakers can handle anything I throw at it and I throw ALOT ! Whether you like your sound with scooped mid's, high treble, GAIN galore or MEGA bass, this sucker puts your sound in others faces ! Built like a tank with their iconic "MARSHALL" name emblazened on the front, people will know you know quality music equipment and also know you mean buisness on 1st sight ! For guys like me without the luxury of roadies, the casters make it simple to move after a rough night of playing out. ONLY drawback, which isn't really a problem, was it's price BUT, quality costs ! And I'll never need to buy another one long as I'm good to it ! Don't gamble on your tone with crappy 4X12's man, WHY have a 1K head running into a cheap bottom ? JUST GET A ONE and hear the difference ! Then use your other 4X12 as a mixing board table. THIS SITE ROCKS US/U.S. ONE NOTE AT A TIME !

    A Marshall Cab with Vintage 30's

    By Scott

    from San Diego, CA

    Comments about Marshall 1960V 280W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    A quick glance at the specs wouldn't see like it, but this 1960 cab IS in fact loaded with Vintage 30's. The aftermarket Vintage 30 is rated by Celestion at 60 watts because it's aplication is not always known (closed back or open back cabinet) these speakers are EXACTLY THE SAME as the vintage 30, but Marshall has rated them at 70 watts inside their cabinet. That said...it sounds just as you would expect one of the most versatile speakers inside one of the best built cabinets to sound...AMAZING! It keeps your lows punchy, your highs will sizzle, and your mids will cut through the mix like no other. Compared to the G12t75's the Vintage 30's have a little more mids, and roll off on the highs and lows a little more, so it's really a matter of preference but I'd say the V30's is where that sonic bliss is at.

    Wrong Speakers

    By JAYDOG

    from Hesperia, California

    Comments about Marshall 1960V 280W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    This is the best cabinet you can buy period. I bought it for my son who plays lead guitar in my band. The speakers are not Vintage 30's though. If they were Vintage 30's it would be a 240 watt cab since Vintage 30's are 60 watts each. We took off the back cover and the speakers are Heritage Celestian Marshall Gold's! A 70 watt speaker! (hence 280 watt Cab)The celestian website list this as their most expensive speaker. I argued this at guitar center when I was buying the cab 1.5 years ago because I couldn't figure why it was listed as a 280 watt cab with vintage 30's. I pulled the back cover and found out for myself. EXCELLENT CAB!! The best we ever had. I have a 1960AX which has the Greenbacks which works great for rhythm behind my son. I'm thinking about one of these now!

    Amazing

    By ilikemusic--KPSb

    from virginia

    Comments about Marshall 1960V 280W 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

    I am a bassist who needed to upgrade from a awful behringer. Since my dad is a guitarist, and had this creation in the basement, I decided to plug it up. Using a 100 watt epiphone head, my Jazz, Precision, and even my Thunderbird sound amazing! It gives a full, round tone with out distorting. It can take power and won't blow up. If you have the money, buy it! The Marshall legacy will not let you down.
