OVERVIEW

Invest in that fat sound!

The Marshall 1960TV Cabinet has an angled front; 4 - 12" Greenback speakers; and a warmer, thicker sound than the 1960A. This 100W, mono, 16-ohm cabinet is 3 inches taller than a standard 1960A 4x12 cabinet which results in well defined mid range and a lowered resonant frequency for more prominent lows. The 25W Greenbacks are less in your face than the 75W Celestions in the 1960A. Although not a reissue -- it was never offered in the past -- this cab recreates the classic look and tones of yesteryear.

FEATURES
  • Angled front
  • 4 - 12" 25W Greenback speakers for warmer, thicker sound than the 1960A

Best sound 4x12 ever made!

        Comments about Marshall 1960TV Cabinet:

        I picked one up used without speakers...I installed four 25 watt WGS Green Beret speakers in it....I wired them identical to how Marshall wires them using a single input.

        The TV 4x12 Cabinet is taller and a little thinner than my standard 1960 Lead cabinet.
        When I finely heard them side by side I have to say the TV cabinet has a lot more bass percussive tone up close verse the standard Marshall 1960 Lead which sounds better to me when I am 10 feet away from it.

        The WGS drivers I bought are considered green back clones...They are an affordable option if your looking for something with the same tone for a little less money.

        I am currently using my own TV cabinet with a Bugera 1960 Infinium head and couldn't be happier.

        This half stack nails classic rock from ACDC to Clapton and even gets to the earlier Hallen tones with just a little reverb and delay.

        I've been noodling for a long time and in my experience owned a few different 4x12 cabinets but only one TV cabinet.

        The TV cabinet sounds bigger in sound like no other 4x12 I have owned.

        They are made using Birch plywood (not marine grade like a Mesa 4x12).
        This makes them much lighter weight cab to haul around despite it's taller size. I can remember my Mesa cabinet was over a 100lb and very heavy to carry.
        Mesa pressure treats their wood with a mold resistant chemical calling it marine grade which adds to the weight when you soak a wood with water based anti fungal chemicals...This process also makes them sound extremely dull by eliminating the natural acoustic sound from wood that resonates tone. Gives a flat dull tight tone.

        Not the case with any Marshall cabinet I have ever used. Marshall cabinets are known for sounding more acoustic by nature because they resonate by speaker vibration from inside. Maybe the reason most professionals use them.

        Marshall has always been the industry standard and go to company for tone by all the greats that have recorded epic albums.

        The Marshall 1960 TV cabinet (tall vintage) looks unusual in size, uses an actual basket weave wood grill that produces a huge sound for just a single 4x12 enclosure. It actually rivals my Marshall JMP full stack when it comes to tone but not over all volume due to four drivers vs eight but as far as recording goes there is no better.

        If you ever have a chance to play through one side by side against a standard 4x12 you will hear the difference. I most certainly have been able to do so and want to share my experience.

        No other cabinet on the market can or will sound like the Marshall 1960TV 4x12.

        Maybe changing speakers will add to the tone in any cabinet but it's the dimensions and the wood being used that resonates that gives off an acoustic tone no marine grade cabinet can ever deliver. it's the total package that distinguishes a good cabinet made over the others.

        Marshall for life!

        Marshall TV cabs

        By Guitarman-_DiPA

        from Florida

        Comments about Marshall 1960TV Cabinet:

        I have been playing for onver 40 years. Yes, 40 years and played at one time all kinds of music. For the classic rock or great blues sound many factors are needed from the type of guitar and pickups, boxes, etc. THis is the BEST sounding cab every!!! I have a Marshall 1957 head. THe tone is that tone for the classic rockers. NOthing will touch it. This is it. The other cabs/speakers will just not do it. Get it and it will be with you forever.

        Amazing cab

        By tmmwt2

        from Central Florida

        Comments about Marshall 1960TV Cabinet:

        I bought this cab a year ago and have gigged this cab a considerable amount. I have ran 5150's, valveking's and mesa heads through the cab and it sounded great with all of them. The music that I play is metal and the cab has a great low end response. I highly recommend this cab to anyone.

        First and last cab I'll own

        By Jester2254

        from Nashville, TN

        Comments about Marshall 1960TV Cabinet:

        Before I purchased this from a local store, I did alot of research. I was sceptical about the 100W only, but everyone I talked to raved about the Greenbacks. When I first hooked the 1960 TV up to my rig, I was blown away, maybe even lost some hearing! Holy crap, this thing's a beast!My Les Paul has an incredible low end punch through the 1960 TV. The tonal range is phenomenal. MY 61 RI SG also sounds great, the 1960 TV sounds awesome whether clean or at full roar. What I like best about the 1960 TV is it allows different characteristics of different guitars to be heard. This is the first cab I've owned and I'm still blown away by the monster tone. Hook it up with good guitars and tube amps, be prepared to have several compliments regarding the quality of your tone.

        Beautiful Tone

        Comments about Marshall 1960TV Cabinet:

        I recently bought a Marshall 1959slp 100w reissue head and this cab, which sound beautiful together. I play a gibson les paul and fender strat and with the right settings both sound incredible. I especially love the extended bass of this cab compared to the other 1960's. I only wish Marshall made a matching bottom so I could have a giant full stack!

        The most amazing cab jim has created yet

        By PRSplaya6969

        from Phoenix, AZ

        Comments about Marshall 1960TV Cabinet:

        This cab is amazing, with tons of low end punch, due to the extra height. If you are looking fo an angled cab but don't want to sacrifice low end because of the smaller box size, this is the cab for you.

        The Best Marshall Speaker Cab

        By rockdoc-LL_sn

        from Andreas, PA

        Comments about Marshall 1960TV Cabinet:

        I own too many new, and vintage amps, and more speaker cabs than I care to admit to! This one is the Best Marshall cab made, esp. if you are after that classic fat Marshall distortion. The added size of this cab allows for a wider, bolder bass response. Blues leads become "Santana-esk". If you covet the classic Marshall sound, this is your cabinet.
