It's the second one that I get. The sound is amazing, looks very well, is compact, potent and can support any type of amp head. The 2 x 12" sounds like the 4 x 12", I'd say, very similar but with no delay. I'am using with my JVM205H and Gibson Les Paul, and I love it!!

I bought on the web site, everything worked fine. Was delivered very well packed and in time.

More particle-board junk from the greatest name in rock-amp history. It is sad to see this venerable company resort to cheap materials and components while touting the venerable name. This is only marginally better than the MC 212, which is total junk. So when they ask for double the money, you should get at least a quarter more quality. Sorry... not so. I am disheartened to see my old friend have his name ruined for the sake of a dollar. Pitiful.

Marshall 1936 2X12

Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

I do love this cab but keep in mind it was intended as a combo extension cab, and not really for 100 watt heads, although it can certainly handle that load. The stock speakers don't have the most desireable tone out there so i would definitely consider loading them with Vintage 30s or Greenbacks. Definitely not as cumbersome or heavy as a 4 X 12 but not a walk in the park either. Still easily manageable with a one man lift. True Marshall look with the white piping and side reinforecments. In a live setting, i would recommend putting it on top of a road case to project a little better, plus it looks cooler that way. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a 2 X 12 but you are going to want to replace those speakers depending upon your style of music.
Loaded with Celestion G12T 75 12" speakers at 8 or 16 ohms, 150 watts. Rock solid cabinet with caster sockets and heavy duty side handles. White piping
Rock solid
That price seems pretty steep but you are paying for a true Marshall cabinet

    So much better than a 4x12!

    By Andrew Hutchison

    from Edmond, OK

    Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

    Could not recommend this cabinet more highly for any style of music.
    I tried plugging my Marshall 9200 head into a friend's 1960 full stack, and it didn't sound as good as the 1936 pair. The tone is very punchy and powerful. Going through the 1960 stack, it wasn't as precise and lacked the headroom that these have. The bottom end is extraordinary, and usually overwhelmed the bass player's Marshall bass stack with an 18" bottom.
    Very solidly constructed, amazing tone. Closed back makes it extremely punchy!
    I bought mine in England 15 years ago, and the price was comparable. Wouldn't trade my pair of 1936's for a full stack.

    Sad Day for the Marshall 1936 Series

    By Old_Guitar_Slinger131

    Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

    I find it astonishing on how far the folks at the ?Modern? Marshall have fallen from building quality amps, & quality cabinets to back them up. Like most of their modern amps that overheat or blow up from deficient engineering, this speaker extension cabinet is no exception. Marshall, in an obvious attempt to make more money off the working musician, has cut serious corners throughout the entire build process of this cabinet. It is entirely constructed with wood made out of sawdust & superglue. The speaker handles are cheap weak plastic, and easily break. Even the tolex, when compared to other telexed cabinets, appears to be seriously lacking in structural durability due to it easily ripping off with little to no effort at all. I can make all these claims because I can directly compare this modern Marshall 1936 cab to an older 1980?s Marshall JCM800 1936 2x12 cab that I own. After only 3 months of use the Modern 1936 was falling apart, and began looking worse than the 25 year old JCM800 1936. My best advice is to stay away from this cabinet unless you are able to find one that was built in the 80?s. The older cabinets are constructed with solid wood throughout, and are engineered to last a lifetime of play and abuse. With the Modern Marshall 1936...you are only paying for the name, and nothing else. There are several other higher quality, and less costly cabinets out there to spend your hard working money on that will not disappoint you like this Modern 1936. To sum it up for you...the modern Marshall 1936 is pure junk.

      This is a nice cabinet overall. I do feel Marshall should make it out of Birchwood, I feel its pricey (new) considering its MDF material. I'm not a fan or GT12-75's. To my ears, they are boomy and brittle. I swapped them out of my 1936 cab with Vin 30's. Vast improvement. To those complaining of tearing the tolex, buy roadcases. I have roadcases for all my gear. All in all, a very nice piece of equipment, with a good sound.

      Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

      The size & weight of this cab is a solo job,easy on the road crew. I run Marshall 6100 30th aniversary 100w head X 2 left & right stage in stereo with these cabs, left original speakers,& put rig in custom built road cases, even with the head weight still easy on the road crew, by the way after hearing my rig set up, every one wants one. You can also hook these cabs up to JCM's2000 100w combo & even a vs265 for an incredible bass heavy addition to tone. You will feel it in the gut not in your ears. Buy the cab & or cabs. ROCK ON PEOPLE.

      I own two 1960A Marshall cabs. The great thing about this 1936 cab is it's sound. It sounds just like the 1960A on steriods. Nices low and tight crunches.No regrets. And yes it looks like a mini me Marshall quarter stack.

      Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

      I held off on gettig this cabinet due to some of the poor reviews I saw. First let me say, they are undeserved. I have mine sitting right next to my 1960A cabinet and the quality of construction is exactly the same. The handles, corners, tolex everything. I haven't opened the cabinet to check whether or not it's particle board or not, but as good as it sounds, I really dont care. This cab has great bottom end and sounds exactly like a Marshall. If you like Marshalls, you'll like the cab, if not, why are you even reading this. I have it paired with a JCM 2000 DSL 50 and it sounds great! A perfect mini stack, the perfect alternative to a 2x12 combo amp for those like me who prefer head and cabinet set-ups. I would definately recommend this, it is a keeper. When the time comes to pare down to one cab, the 2x12 may take the prize.

      Great cab...I have it paired up with a JVM205H and it sounds good. The speakers still need some break in time but they sound good so far and will get better with time. This cab os perfect for those of us who have no need or use for a heavy 4X12. Though I may swap the speakers for some Eminence Man o Wars in the future like my friend did.

      I have had this cab for years now... it has been with me around the world... small gig, large gig, studio ... it never disappoints. It gets a very classic Marshall tone! I love pushing the cab with an Orange head (for crunch) while running a Vox ac30... they really offset each other and sound amazing... Basically, I do not understand all these negative reviews... I mean, the stero isn't that great ( hence the 4.0 features rating) but the mono is beastly... you just have to learn how to get the best sound out of your equipment.

      Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

      The only reason to buy this cab is to get a 2 x 12 that matches Marshall heads. That's it. The speakers in this thing are lifeless and rated too high wattage wise for any head under 100 watts (75w each). The box is pressboard and not plywood. Given the price tag, this is a joke. Marshall needs to step it up and the folks at Celestion need to bow their heads in shame.

      Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

      this one steals the cake! in the 80s i used 4x12 or a full stack. times has changed and space is important. less to drag around and awesome on the ears. this cab does the trick and more. i drive my mk II jmp lead 50 watt head thru this and it sounds great. enough speakers to drive my head the way i need it to. people are shocked to hear my tone coming thru this which is a simple DS 1 or MXR + with a tad of reverb for wetness. i love this and recommend it to players who had the 80s and now do the 21st century. depend on talent not overpowering volume unless on tour. this makes your tone better and shows how you matured.

      By Lazar

      from FL

      Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

      I can't believe Marshall would put out such a cheep cabinet. The molded shell cover tears so easily, even from light handling. I have a JCM 900 combo and I've gigged with it for 7 years now, just slight tears and scuffs here and there on the outside. I've used the 1936 cabinet for 3 practices and one gig and have torn it over 4 times already. I've had to glue the "fabric" back on to save its appearance. The speakers on the other hand are anything special. I don't think it even sounds any better than my combo. If it weren't for almost complimenting my combo, I'd call it JUNK! Shame on you Jim Marshall.

      By Bintie

      from NY

      Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

      I own a 1960A and 1960AV, but wanted a smaller cab. This is perfect, sounds just as good if not better than my 1960A. I like GT1275s and V30s, both are great sounding speakers. I use this cab with a Marshall DSL100, Marshall JVM410H and Mesa Dual Rectifier. It sounds great with them all, though the Recto is better with a V30 cab for me.Build quality is surprisingly good inside and out, given the poor reviews. This is my "go-to" cab now.Peace!

      1936 cab

      By Jean-HdbwR

      from Nashville

      Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

      A nice idea as the full size 4x12 is often just too cumbersome and most gigs don't need that much speaker. That said, I wish Marshall would option better speakers than the harsh sounding G-12s for this cab. Once you've made this purchase, then swapped out the speakers for Vintage 30s or Greenbacks you are well beyond the price range of even the highest price boutique 2x12 cab, which depending on make could be of much superior quality..

      Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

      This cabinet sounds great overall, but it's a bit bottom-heavy for my preference. My biggest dislike is the fact that it doesn't include casters, and the Marshall casters are kind of expensive. Overall, I would say its a good cabinet for rehearsal or jamming at home when a full 4x12 cabinet would be overkill. I play a Mesa/Boogie Triple Rectifer head through it and it handles the head at full volume with no problem.

      If you love Marshall sound but your wife doesn't

      By GuitarJunkee

      from N. Potomac, MD

      Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

      I love this cabinet. I'm not a pro, so don't pretend to have the base of comparison of many other posters here, but I do know this was the cab for me. I play almost exclusively at home and my wife, while tolerant, would freak if I brought home a 4x12. This cab does it all for me, so no worries. It's as loud as I can stand it when no one's home, but sounds awesome with the volume turned down as well. It's paired with a JCM 2000 TSL 60 so I get all of the Marshall tone I want. It's true the tolex seems fragile -- nothing like the Mesa cabs, but it's tone is the trick and it's not on the road. If you like the deeper bass profile of Mesa this probably isn't the cab for you, though upgrading to V30's will get you most of the way there. But for the classic Marshall sound this does the job. With my Fender Vintage Blues Reissue, I have all of the amp I need. My gear: 62 RI Fender Strat, Custom Made 60's Vintage Tele with Noiseless Pickups (all USA), Johnson copy of ES-335 with Fender '57 pickups, PRS Custom 24 Artist.

      Comments about Marshall 1936 2x12 Cabinet:

      I bought one of these about 10 years ago to use with a Marshall 50/100w Slash Signature head. I don't find the stereo separation to be worth the trouble in that mode, but as a straight cab it's very practical. I couldn't & still can't afford a 1960 A & B, & the 1936 is so much easier to carry. As far as I'm concerned the sound is just fine. And I never had any trouble tearing anything on it - Laney amps on the other hand - - -! I can play through this and sound pretty good at very low volumes, and it can be plenty loud, though not like a full stack, of course.
