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.

Just the Marshall name

By Mercury Winger

from Massachusetts Baby

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.

Good cab for the small price

By Bones

from Santa Cruz, CA

See all my reviews

I got the 412A at used at a local music shop. I used to use Marshalls but stopped in favor of combos. Now I'm getting back into using a half stack. I didn't want something that was a back breaker but I wanted decent sound. This little (smaller and lighter than the 1960A) is the ticket. YES - it doesn't have all the sound of a 1960A - BUT, for the money it's a decent sound and if you are aware of the issues you can easily compensate by using your EQ. The cab sounds best when pushed only part of the way (with 75 watts instead of 120) and the h/w is cheap plastic - so don't bang it around and take a littl care. Look - if you want a pro cab then spend more. But if you want a really decent cab for under 5 bills then this is one of the best I've tried. If you take decent care of your stuff it will last. Don't listen to the naysayers. Peace and love.

perfect size and sound

By Triangle-bbiWp

from College Station, Texas

I love this amp, goes perfect with the Valve state 100w head. I run it out of an A/B box w/ my Fender princton 2x10. The two amps together make the perfect pallet for clean and distorted tones

Reliable and sturdy

By Danyol

from Florida

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.

Dont Buy!

By Ryan B.

from CT

See all my reviews

Well I am in a band, have been for a good 5 years, and I was usin a peavey cab and a line 6 head. Well during one of my gigs, my rhythm guitar player was playin his too loud. So I turned mine up and blew 2 of the speakers. I didn't want to buy new speakers so I thought I would buy a new cab. So I bought this. Which I wish I shouldnt have. We practice in my basement at my house, and we tend to turn it loud. So were playin and everything is fine, until, we start playin modern day cowboy by tesla. Right when I muted my string, the speaker blew. Well in the end I found out that only 1 of my speakers blew. I was amazed. So I changed the speakers and sold it to my buddy at work. Now im usin a crappy randall cab. Even though that the cab is a piece of [you know what] it is better than this. So trust me on this. DONT BUY THIS!

Different sound..don't be scared.

By Andy-f9fwL

from Texas

I bought this stack purely out of the need for a gig-worthy amp. I got the MG100HDFX head that came with it, and the overall sound is awesome. I can overpower my friends 120w Crate and 120w bass amp easily. This amp fits perfectly for small to moderate sized shows. The sound was totally different after playing through an Ibanez stomp box, and it was umm...dissapointing at first because I was used to that fuzzy distortion. But the more I messed with the settings, the more I fell in love.

Bang for the buck

By MikeofManyInstruments

from CT

See all my reviews

I bought the angled cab to run my Marshall G100RCD through. My band plays alternative and ska and this cab seems to handle everything very well. It leaves much to be desired on the clean channel as lower notes tend to sound choppy and broken up but if you keep the clean channel at about 1/4 gain and 3/4 master volume, it cleans up. Everybody seems to complain about the fact that it doesn't have casters. Get your drill out, spend the money and install them yourself, it's not that hard!! For the money, this is a decent amp and a great starting point for budding guitarists.

Marshall MG412A cab

By DV200player

from Michigan

See all my reviews

This cab rocks!!! I run my Marshall VS100 amp through this cab and it sounds great!!! I plan on buying the bottom cab for the full stack affect!! Yeah, the more expensive Marshall cabs probally do sound better but for the price of this you can't go wrong. Well worth the money to me. It's also smaller than a standard cab which makes it nice you you have to move it around. Gotta love a Marshall!!!

Ehhh, not great

By Thenewtxrock

from Texas USA

See all my reviews

I've owned this cabinet for quite a while. I've run the matching head, line 6 pod, and a good tube amp through it. At lower volumes it performs ok, nothing spectacular. You loose gain and it's difficult to get good tone out of it, even using a tube amp. At higher volumes a strange distortion occers in the high-midrange that just sounds plain bad. If you are strapped for cash and desperate this will do it, but I strongly urge anyone in the market for a new cabinet to pass this one up for something else. While more expensive a 1936 2x12 cabinet is much better, louder, and sounds better.

This thing is the balls...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I got this thing a couple days ago and i played it through my old crate gx1200h amp and it sounded so crazy on 1! it was so loud and the sound was great. I always wanted a marshall and i didnt think i could afford one but a crate into a marshall cab is a winning combo and i picked it over a behringer cab. this thing is also awesome cause it's wicked light...im 14 and i can carry it around easily so definitely get one man.

2 are good for a 50 watt tube head

By Kelly James

from Weslaco, TX

See all my reviews

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.

marshall is the greatest

By elsa

from Winston Salem, NC

See all my reviews

This cab is one of the best I have played out of. I love it. It handles most all frequencies with ease. This is especially considering that I run a bass amp head through it. If anyone is looking for a cool new guitar tone, use this cab with a bass head. You won't regret it.

GREAT CABINET!!!!!!!!

By MeTAL KID

from the woodlands TX

See all my reviews

I bought this cabinet today to go w/ my crate 120 combo amp. I use the marshal mg 412 as an extension speaker and it sounds amazing.It doesont buzz or anything on the clean channel.It has one of the best cleans I have ever heard.I compared this to a crate cabinet and they sound identical. It makes a great stack w/ my crate.Anyone on a budget should definatly get this cabinet.

you'll regret buying this

By brandonmkv

from CT

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.

Pretty Sweet

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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

tis good

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Good sound, good tone, overall its a good cab for a beginner, its fairly loud. The price is actually lower than it should be, so you get more than you pay for. My only complaint is that it is only an 8 ohm cab, the 4/16 ohm switch like in the 1960 cabs would be nice to have.

Great tone and projection!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I'm playing a 1966 Sunn SpecturmII (60 watt tube head) through my 412a, and the sound is incredible. Initially it was a little more than I wanted to pay for a bottom of the line Marshall, but that quickly changed once I played through it. This cabinet is simply AMAZING and with the Sunn head driving it, the tone is PURE vintage!

Ask me a question

I just bought this amp and I am very happy with it. I bought it for my MG100DFX combo and with the addition of three more 12" speakers, my amp now speaks louder than ever. I would highly recommend this cab to anyone who loves to rock.
