The only choice for serious musicians. Nothing compares to Marshall cabinets in terms of awesome tone and projection. Both visually and aurally, Marshall 4x12 cabs are indeed "the business."

Great sound and looks however are not everything. Many years of experience mean that Marshall's speaker cabinets are also built to stand the test of time. Their highly skilled craftsmen construct them from the finest quality materials with precision corner locked joints, tough cotton backed PVC covering, heavy-duty hardware, and the highest quality fittings.

The Marshall Stack
If one thing personifies the image of rock 'n' roll more than anything else it's the Marshall 4x12. Though often imitated, nothing compares with the original. The first 4x12 cab was designed and built by Jim Marshall in 1962. Since then they have made many thousands, which have appeared on stages both large and small all over the world.

After the initial success of the Marshall 4x12, it wasn't too long before they designed and built the first stack, where an angled cabinet sits on top of a straight fronted cab, with the amplifier placed on top. This came about after discussions with Pete Townshend of The Who. Pete and Jim Marshall sat down and discussed The Who's requirements for an 8x12 cab with an angled top. This was designed and built, but due to this awesome cab being somewhat cumbersome, only 6 were ever made.

As a result, we came up with the more practical idea of stacking an angled cab on top of a straight fronted model. Thus the famous Marshall stack was born. What happened to the six 8x12 cabs do we hear you ask? Well, two went to Pete Townshend, two went to John Entwhistle and the remaining two went to the Small Faces. The Marshall stack, on the other hand, has stayed in production ever since and has gone on to become the most recognizable rock 'n' roll icon.

As we invented the stack, Marshall 4x12's are the only true originals. Everything else is merely an imitation.

The 1960A is switchable from mono [4 or 16 Ohms] to stereo [8 Ohms per side], and is equipped with Celestion G12T-75 speakers.

The highest quality woodwork includes the "corner locking" of each and every joint. This helps give Marshall cabinets the incredible strength and durability, which has become as legendary as the Marshall sound itself.

Heavy-duty Grab Handles are fitted to all Marshall cabinets. Their tough, ergonomic recessed casing design gives easy access to the bar of the handle without affecting the cabinet's smooth lines.

No sharp metal edges or rough fittings - the smooth ABS plastic Marshall corner fits perfectly and offers excellent protection to all 8 cabinet corners.

i bought one of these guys second hand from my local L&M to match with my Hughes & Kettner tubemiester 18 (previously used an Egnator tourmaster 2x12) and was really impressed. at first i was hesitant because it was closed backed, and i thought it just had vintage 30s for speaker, which for me, have always just been a good starting point for speakers, not the end all be all people them out to be. but, i was blown away by the sound! perfect for el34 loaded amps. the G12T-75's are great. lots of different ways to plug in an amp or two for stereo, built like a tank but still fairly light, lighter then my 2x12. only loosing marks for me are the casters which i felt could be a bit bulkier, still tough but i wouldnt ride on top of it like i do my 2x12. the other down side is just the price. i was lucky enough to get mine for about 450 and it was broken in, but its a bit steap for a 4x12, especially since everyone does in fact copy this design. all in all great cabinet

I bought this cab never playing it or hearing it. Strictly relying on the fact that it's a Marshall cab and i was not let down! I have used many different cabs throughout my life and this has the be my fav to date by far! Nice and light compared to other cabs for easy transport, solid durability and construction and as always Celestian speakers which never let me down once one stage or recording in the studio! I plan on buying 2 more
