The first thing people need to understand...This is obviously not a high-end cabinet. I own one of these and use it as a practice cab. I have 2 top-of-the-line Marshall cabinets, the 1960AV and 1960BV cabinets - Full stack. Honestly, side-by-side at both low and high volumes on a Marshall JCM2000 DSL50 head, the only noticeable difference was an average loss of efficiency and less bass response. I bought the straight-cab version for more bass response. The slant cab will distort/make muddy sound ONLY because of driver compression and the compromised internal volume. Versus the AV/BV that I paid a little under a grand for, EACH...No one can expect the same "Celestion Vintage 30 tone" from a bottom-of-the-line cabinet. It has diminished qualities for the price range. Cheaper wiring, lower-quality drivers, one mono input, smaller internal volume size, etc. All these affect the "high quality sound" that's expected. Marshall has been very highly reputable for countless years. I personally think this cabinet is an excellent value with satisfactory sound. Not perfect, nor top-notch, but you get what you pay for. If you don't like it, return it, and save your money for better components. Instead of leaving poor reviews just because YOU made a bad decision. Next time you write a review, be wise, and have logical explanations WHY you chose your ratings. These are used to guide upcoming buyers.

I don't think this thing is anywhere near as roadworthy as any other cabs in the same price range. The corner guards on this cab are hard (crackable) plastic (as are the handles which are thin and hollow). You could litterally shatter the "hardware" on it by bumping into it. It feels like cheap flea market imposters.The cab coating is cheap too: the coating on my cab scraped down to bare wood in places after just one show. Also the whole thing is really light for a cab. The first one one these I got was damaged during shipment. The whole front was kicked out from the inside, split from one end to the other. Is that partical board? Very cheap.I'm happy with the sound though most cabs in this range can handle more watts. The one chanel mono isn't that great... and there's no other ohm settings. Overall I'm disapointed with my first Marshall purchase. Line 6, Behringer, Randall, and Fenders in the same range are better made, with more power options, and simular sound. All you're paying for is the name... which is a cheap plastic logo you can rip off with less then 5 pounds of pressure. I'm not impressed.

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.
Ive had this cab for about 2 and a half years now. I bought the cab including the head and so far its been pretty reliable.Its been through many many shows and a couple of east coast tours and it has held up pretty well, the greatest thing about it is its lightweight and thats nice to have on tour. For the price its great
I have played through this cabinet before and I just want to say what else do you want? Now I understand if you are a big time act playing in concert halls, this is not for you ... but it is what it is. Go for it ... goes well with my 100hdfx ... too bad it does not match though, because I got the limited edition in off white. but it is a feaky match though, I must say. I aint no rock star and all these reviews about how bad it is. hahaha...Ok.. buy this cabinet and you will be very pleased ... it is good for clubs. as a matter of fact, it is pretty damm good and does the jpb well.
Got one in my studio and it is as good as it gets for a 4/12 in my humble experience of 50 years playing just about every thing out there, don't be fooled by the price it is as good as it gets for any price.
I really get off on having a full stack, but did not want or need the larger and heavier cabinets.I run my tube head at 50 watts and this is more than enough volume for me. Also a higher speaker closer to my head enables me to hear my tone without having to bend over. I highly suggest two if you want a stack but don't need an extreme volume level. Plus my tube head is 26" wide like these are and not 30" like the big cabs.
I originally bought this as my first cabinet(and sold it 3 months later) just because I wanted a marshall cab for cheap. Well there's a reason why it's so cheap, and thats the only good thing about it, the price. But anyway, the cab only has 120 watts handling which isn't alot at all; if you plan on using a tube amp with this, you won't be able to turn it up very loud. The sound breaks up easy and the actual sound quality isn't that great. Save up extra money and get a 1960 lead cab, definitely worth the extra money.
I've been using 2 of these in our Praise Band with my full rack system. It works great for the size of the Venue. My other 4x12 are much too loud but these puppies let me crank some great sound.
