Great sound capabilities
I use this with my Marshall JVM head and the stock speakers in it are fantastic. The JVM has quite a kick, but this cab is more than capable of handling it. This cab is perfect for someone who gigs regularly, and is portable and not too heavy.
Same as the head....a classic
Again, same as the head....it's too much of me nowadays. It was fun when I was a kid but I can't crank it in my NYC apartment and these half stacks played at low volumes don't sound like JCM800's. You might as well have a Park practice amp LOL.
An everlasting standard
Well...I bought mine around 20 years ago and it has survived hundreds of gigs without flight case and thousands of hours of practice. I even found it once floating in our practice room after a flood. It is alive and kicking as good as the first day. I would say it sounds even better. It makes every head sound really good; with lots of bottom end and the perfect amount of mids to be heard without making your ears bleed. The fact that is angled is a good point for me, as I can listen to what I am playing way better when I have the speaker a few metres away from my butt on stage. It moves lots of air and will make your guitar sound as it is. I'm sure it will be with me for at least another 20 years. It's loud, looks good and sounds awesome...can it get any better?
One amazing cab...
While the Marshall 1960A cab is to be found almost universally, I have always used this cab for so long I don't even remember when I started using it. These days, I use almost every amp I have through the 1960A cab (I also have one 1960B cab). The ones I have are generally fitted with the Celestion 70 watt speakers and can be operated in stereo or mono inputs.
While I have used other speaker cabs these really are such an all round useful cab I have never found anything better.
This cabinet, especially when it is loaded with it's classic Celestions, will never let you down in terms of tone, feel, look, and durability. I definitely recommend this cabinet, however, do not buy from stores like Casio or Guitar Center. You can find the same thing used for WAY less money. That's what happened with me.
Nothing screams Marshall like a 1960 cab
I'm not even a guitar player, and I just had to have a 1960 cab. And I specifically wanted the slanted "A" cab. Yeah I bought it with a 100W head, but that was too much for me. I sold the head, but kept the cab. It's so much fun to have around. I've actually used this for BOTH my guitar players at the same time! They can each plug their head into half the 1960, and voila! They each have a 2x12! Worked great and sounded great.
