This is the only way to play! It's a little heavy, but that why you've got casters and roadies. This cab was made to rock with Marshall heads like my DSL100, the go to rock amp. They match perfectly! The 1960A is just a little brighter than it brother the 1960B and if you can afford to get them both, you won't regret it. I've read where people say "buy them used". I think that crazy, you never know what the last guy did with a used one and I've never seen one that was that much cheaper than a new one to make it worth while. Save your pennies boys it's worth it!

There are far better cabs out there for less money. If you have to have the Marshall name on the front, I guess this will do. The way to buy the 1960a and 1960b is USED. I've had a few of these and while good, see my comment about there being better cabs for the money.
It's a cab. Speakers and an input jack.
Could be better for the price. Plastic corners, plastic handles, super tiny internal wiring.
For $100 or so less, you can buy a Splawn which is constructed light years better (no particleboard backing!) and the wiring is soldered. All steel hardware! For an even better value, look at WhiteBox, Avatar.

The Randall XL series cabs are nicely made to!!

This Cab Rocks Hard!

By K-Man-i9xgE

from St.Louis

See all my reviews

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

I went to the music store and tried out some cabs. I bought it within 10 minutes. The Marshall 1960A cabinet is so amazing, it makes everything else not. First off, it looks proffessional.The Sound you get from it is so responsive and MUCH louder then my old behringer cab. I Have a Gibson SG Standard running through a B-52 AT100 and this cab. THe beefy lows just kick you in the face they are so good. The mids scream with just enough low end to make the tone just right. And the highs are phenomanal! The Celestion G-12's just make this thing shine, perfect in everyway. Very durable, i've had it for a few months and many gigs, and dropped it down heavy a few times and it still kicks. IN comparision, it just sounds so much better for All kindas of rock, and especially Metal. Did I mention it really brings out the lows? Throw on resonance on your amp and the chugs are so metal-god-like.Overall, this cab kicks a**, and alot of it. Can handle ANYTHING.

Thats a cab!

By Hagenguitars

from Mankato MN

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

I bought this cab when my current cab wasn't doing the job. I'm running a JVM 410 100 watt, and it used to be rigged with a Marshall MG cab (120 watts). When I dropped D from some tunes in practice it would sound boggy and like crap.Then I bought the 1960 A cab and I was thrown away. the highs are amazing and it never bogged out yet. Great cab for the moola

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

I recently bought one of these cabs at guitar center. mines an older model, back when they were still made in england ( includeing speakers). I compaired the older model to the new version ( aka this cab) BOTH SOUND AMAZING. The England made speakers are still a bit better. This cab right here has a great tone to it over all tho. better for scoped tones. OVER ALL AMAZING CAB.

1960 Marshall Cabs

By JT

Ask me a question

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

I've owned about a dozen or so Marshall 1960 cabs over the years but the newest ones sound amazing. I use 2 slant fronts (A) on top of 2 straight fronts (B) on stage powered by the Marshall EL34 100/100 monobloc power amp and I pre-amp that with a Marshall JVM-410H head.

I put my stereo effects in line with the inputs to the EL34 monoblocs and I set up one full stack on either side of the stage for separation. The sound is unlike anything I've ever used before.

The only knock is that the Tolex covering tears very easily, don't bump it against anything sharp or you'll cut it. I use the Marshall cab covers whenever I move them to keep from ruining the finish.

I practice with one full stack in the studio and if kept to reasonable levels will not overpower the rest of the band. But if you get into a volume war, you will win.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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

I bought this when I was deployed in 2009 along with a Traynor YCS100H all tube amp head. I finally got to hook it up and play it the other day, and I was blown away. The speakers are great, cleans are nice crisp and clear, and the distortion is so loud that you don't even need to bother with distortion pedal. I havven't put any efx through it yet but theres no dought in my mind that they'll sound amazing. Bottom line if you're looking for a good all around speaker cab thats affordable and reliable this is the one

1960B

By Jbob-5mwU8

from America!

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

I have a pair of these 1960B cabs. They are good sounding, well made cabs. They work well with most amps. Amps I've used with these cabs are: 6505+, Triple Rectifier, JCM 900, VHT Ultra Lead, and a Diezel Herbert. The JCM 900 does sound a little thin through it and the Diezel seems a little too strong in the low end for this cab. Other than that, great cabs.

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

I am extremely impressed with the 1960 series from Marshall. I play through a Peavey 6505+ into a JCM-900 Lead 1960, and the sound I get is amazing. Celestions are by far the best sounding speakers you cant get. The vast majority of good bands use them, and there is a perfect reason why. You just cant beat these cabs. The price is very reasonable, you get 4 g12t-75s inside a quality Marshall product. I highly reccomend using these cabs.

Marshall Monster!

By Johnnie The Axe Master

from Oklahoma

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

These speaker cabs are the ultimate in beefy and pristine sound. That is why 999 out of 1,000 speaker cabs used by professional musicians are none other than Marshall. I am using a Crate BV120H all tube head with this cab and my sound is almost identicle to James Hetfield's sound on the "And Justice For All" album. The lows are bold and pronounced without distortion and the highs are searing and crisp. This cab has no equal. Buy it now!

This is the best cab I have ever owned, and I havent own many, so my opinion doesnt really matter, go play one at your local music store and see what you think.
Solid, well built, cant wait to gig it and beat the shit out of it to see how it holds up
I got a smokin deal on a restock, british made cab, but even at full price these are well worth the money!

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

I have the jcm 900 1960 angled cabinet that I recently purchased and after playing through it with my tsl 60 watt combo for the past couple weeks all I can say is this cab is great. It sounds very clear on both clean and lead channels at lower as well as higher volumes. I was really hoping when I made the puchase that the G12T-75 speakers would sound the same or better than the wolverines in my amp and actually, I think they sound a little bit better. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase, I have only one small problem now, Im going deaf!

    Had a very nice 80's 1960B which I loved. I let it slip through my fingers. I went to Orange, Genz Benz GFlex 2x12's, Gflex 4x12's, I did the Mesa oversized Slant Straight, Framus, Avatar....and now back to a 1960B, though not the other one that I prefer, it still sounds essentially the same and I love it. Staying here this time.

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

    I have a JTM45 running through this cabinet (the 1960A) and it gets unbelievable sound quality. Obviously because this cabinet has 75w speakers it is not optimized for overdrive or distortion, but if you're using this to play live anyway you'll probably be turned up loud enough that the 75w speakers won't hinder the gain. If you have an amp with a Master Volume (most nowadays do) this won't be a problem at home either because you can just turn the gain up and the Master Volume down. Otherwise, I'm getting all sorts of beautiful sounds through this cabinet and would highly recommend it to anyone considering buying it.

      This is my first large cabinet, I've owned smaller cabinets in the past and decided to upgrade. I'm glad I did. I paired it up with a Marshall 100w valvestate head, and can take it up to full volume, and still have great tone. Overall it's been a great cabinet. Looks great too.

        I purchased the 1960A from my local music store and wow. When I tried it out I connected it to a DSL 40C. Even at the 20 watt setting this cab is loud, but what a sound. When I got it home I paired it with my TSL601. This is the Marshall tone I have been looking for. I can't use it in many of the small clubs I play but, the outdoor events will now be better than ever. I was afraid of the brittle sound many described in their reviews, I did not experience that at all. The crunch and distortion is pure Marshall tone and the clean tone is fantastic. If you are looking for that extra punch/tone that your combo isn't giving you, try one of these out. My next test is to use only 1/2 of the cabinet to tame it down for smaller clubs.

        Great sound and great look.

        This cab is Great. You get your money's worth. It will produce every note. You dont get cheated out of anything. Its taken everything I can throw at it and it has never rattled or clipped once. I didnt really like it, but my friend in the next room told my I sound amazing. Marshall cabs are funny like that. You need to back away about 15 feet to really hear what the people around you hear. It doesnt matter what volume you play at. You still get harmonically rich tones, so you can get worthwhile practice at modest volume levels. The nature of the cab doesnt change with volume either. It simply sounds better as it gets louder.

        from Florida

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

        This is a great, powerful cabinet. Great overall sound that works with just about any head you put on it. Switchable between a single 4 or 16 Ohms mono input, or a pair of 8 Ohms stereo inputs. Has great range low to high, so you can use different heads and each one's tonal character will come though. 4 x 75 watt Celestions can handle any tube head you sit on top of it, even 150 watt Boogies. If there is one cabinet to have, this is it. I use a single 1960A and have played bars, clubs, outdoor events, it always sounds good. If you play rock, blues or country, you won't be disappointed.

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

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

        I'm surprised that more reviews haven't been written on this amp. Tonight at a show my Marshall MG Cab (The cheap one) blew out after 2 months of use... It's really the only cab I've ever used and I thought it sounded alright until tonight. Another band let me use his 1960a and wow! It puts out huge volumes without any stress whatsoever. The tonal bonus is amazing as well, making my Valveking sound much more full. My only regret is that I waisted money on the cheap one instead of buying this to begin with (cant take the old one back, speakers arent covered). Its a little pricey for me but its worth it!
