I bought this cab (slant) to accompany my 100w Marshall valvestate, and ended up returning for the straight cab to finish the job. It sounds amazing with any type of guitar or effect. I play both my Taylor T5 and my Les Paul on it with wah, chorus, overdrive, and clean. Sounds great in every aspect.

I switch between my mesa tripple rec and line6 bogner valve head through both straight and slant cabs. After buysing such expensive heads i really didnt have enough for good cabsso i picked these up. I'v had them for a while now and these cabs are terrible matched up with tube heads. These cabs get very muddy at high volumes and really shouldnt be used for heavy live sound. For the price its a good buy for practice usage but i wouldnt recomend this cab to musicans that play metal and play live shows. Not to happy.

This speakers in these cabs are terribly fuzzy when used with an amp's distortion. It would not fit standard size heads as it is a compact cab. Most cabs are around 30" in height and width. This cab ruins the name of any head, especially the solid state Marshalls that were designed to match these cabs.
I got this cab when starting out, and it sounded fine until I used it live with my band Insanity Plague. It sounds fuzzy, and it gets worse when the volume is turned up. It was paired with a matching amp head, the MG100HDFX. It sounds alright when just practicing alone, but it's not worth getting a stack just to practice with in my opinion. I'd recommend a Marshall MC412 or a used higher end Marshall cab to start out with. I've heard good reviews about them, so they should be good for all volumes.
I've had this cab since December 2010 and I have to say, it's a pretty good entry level cab. The features of this cab exceed my expectations, I thought I was going to get a mud machine for a cab, but this has a good balance of tone. Of course this isn't a top of the line cab by a long stretch, so it's going to not sound THAT excellent. Only modification I had to do is I threw casters on this thing cause it's a pain to carry around. Sounds pretty good. Seems durable. I play a Bugera 333XL through this cab and I get a pretty awesome tone out of it. Very durable, cheap, decent sounding, Can't complain. Just wish it would have better speakers in it. The ones that are in there are okay, but I'd definitely look to upgrade them, but for the price you really can't beat this. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because it's a pain in the butt to carry around, but 10 bucks gets you 4 casters from Wal-Mart and you're set. Pros -Cheap -Great sounding for the price -Durable Cons -The top of the cab has four indents where the MG head that this is designed for goes, unfortunately my head didn't fit these recesses, so I got the rubber circles it sits on from the bottom of the cab (since I put casters on) and had to measure up the placement, now the head fits on there just about perfectly -Kinda hard to move around, but heck, most cabs are. Would I recommend this cab to a person? You bet I would. You really can't go wrong for the price. Of course there's better cabinets on the market but for the price you can't beat this at all.
I recently bought a Mesa Roadster head and didn't want to drop the extra thousand on a mesa cabinet. I plugged in the Marshall MG412 and it sounded exactly the same as a Mesa cab, which is to say, very good. It's also insanely loud. I put the roadster's volume on the volume setting that I used for practice with my old amp, a Marshall Vintage-Modern 2266c, and it was three times as loud. Its a little bit smaller, which can be considered a plus if you're gigging and you don't want to haul 200 pounds around with you, and it cost about half of what a Mesa 4x12 costs. A great buy!
I recently purchased a Blackheart BH5H Tube Amp. The matching BH112 Cab was on back order. While waiting for it to come in, I found a good used MG412B cab in the local GC store for cheaper than what the BlackHeart cab would have cost new. Purchase the Marshall and have never been happier. It has enough power capability to handle any amp I will ever hook it up to, plus it sounds great with my BlackHeart amp. Good Highs, Mids and Lows and is very solidly built, no rattles or vibrations from the cab no matter how hard I've pushed it, just great sound. Tested it thru one of my 180 watt powered mixers with the same results. I would recommend this model at the Bottom of the Marshall 4x12 cab line to anyone. I am sure it will hold its own compared to the higher priced Marshall models. Would have still been just as satisfied if I had paid full price. I just don't see a downside with this cab.
This cab (in my opinion) is a complete waste of money. Last week, I played my Hughes and Kettner Matrix 100 head through this at a show, and it muffled the sound so much. I had to turn the head up past anything I've turned it to before in order to get any decent volume. Our band's other guitarist's 120 watt Crate Combo was louder. In addition to that, the tone was terrible. Hughes and Kettner heads are known for their beautiful clean channels, and solid distortion. This thing sounded like I kicked in the speakers, and defecated in the input jacks. I would not recommend this cab to any player of any genre. You'll regret it.
I've owned this cabinet for several years now. I use a Marshall AVT50 to drive it. It's always performed well for me, especially considering its price. As a matter of fact, my tone has been compared (no kidding) to that of higher end Mesas and Marshalls. I'm still saving up for a 1960b, but this cabinet has been reliable and sounds pretty darn good.
Bottom Line. It's a 300 dollar cabinet speaker. It has 4x12 celestion speakers(good), however its so lightly constructed that it can't handle the low end at volumes (bad). I'm having problems with palm muting the low end. My opinion, save up for something heavier and more resonant. Thinking bout stripping out the hardware and building a new frame 4 it.
Ive had this cab for about 2 years now, and really there arent much complaints. Although now that i have upgraded to a tube amp, a little more power would be sufficient. You deffinately get the best bang for the buck when it comes to this amp!
Hi I'm a beginning rock band guitar/vocalist. I have found that this amp has very nice quality for the kind of price that you have to pay to get it. I got this amp because my band and I are trying to get a running start with the amount of power that we needed for what we are going to be doing. This amp had just what we needed. It literally out played my friends drums when he was trying to play as loud as he could. If you are going to buy this amp I would highly suggest buying a head that is with 10-20 watts of out put of this cab. I think this is a nice starter cab for a beginner rock band.
