From Our Research Team:
Legendary Marshall Muscle!Nothing personifies the image of rock 'n' roll more completely than a wall of Marshall stacks. Though often imitated, nothing compares to the original. The 1960A is the angled version that features 4 G12T-75 speakers and is the perfect addition to your stage or recording rig! It's ideal for players who appreciate clarity and quality.
Marshall 1960A at a Glance:
The Ultimate in Flexibility
To ensure the ultimate in flexibility, the 1960A (angled) and the 1960B (straight), is switchable between Mono (4 or 16 Ohms) and Stereo (8 Ohms per side). The two Mono impedance options provide extra amp matching capability while the cabinets' stereo capability makes them ideal for rack systems which typically run in stereo.
Clear and True
The 1960A produces a loud, well-focused and uncluttered sound with a tight, full low end and a crisp, clear top. It projects well across the guitar's entire tonal range and its clarity makes it ideal for players who like using a fair amount of effects such as reverb, chorus or delay as it doesn't "mask" or "muddy-up" such FX. Its all-around versatility and relatively "uncolored" nature makes this one of Marshall's best selling cabs. It represents the sound of the guitar and head most accurately.
The Marshall 1960 cabinets are the best selling amp cabinets in the world and are standard on stages everywhere for their sound and rugged construction. While not complicated electronically, the effects of their materials, construction and speakers make the 1960s the choice of players everywhere and have made them the industry standard to this day.
Angled Cabinet History and Sound
A (Angled) cabinets came about because Jim Marshall felt a head on a straight front cab just didn't look "designed." The sides and baffle of the cabinet feature an angled cut. This has both a cosmetic impact and a sonic one since the top two 12" speakers angle slightly upwards. It has more sonic "spread" or dispersion and is a little brighter-sounding than a straight cabinet.
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 rock and roll history in a stack!
Ready For Your Gig - Wherever That Might Be!
Roadworthiness is a vital prerequisite in the world of relentless touring and as Marshall's 40 years of cabinet building attests, Marshall cabinets are definitely built to stand the test of time! Their highly skilled craftsmen construct these 4x12s from the finest materials available - 15mm birch plywood with precision 'finger locked' (comb) joints, tough cotton backed PVC covering, heavy duty hardware and the highest quality fittings.
Weighing in at around 80 lbs, the JCM1960A is made of 15mm birch plywood (except for the back panel, which is medium density fiberboard) and built for tone, projection, and durability. The majority of cabinet construction is done by hand.

1960A: Elite class cabinet from Marshall.. The best of the best
by Alex G from Nashville, Tenn, USAI have owned several Marshall cabs, 1960A, B, and 1922 2x12", and have helped friends puchase Marshall cabs. In my experience, they are the toughest, best constructed, best sounding on the market. Mat... read more [+]ched with Celestion (the best rock speaker maker), these cabs are superlative. Made with excellence.

Music Background: 2+ decades as Marshall owner..
My 1960A dates back to 1991, and has taken 22 years of abuse pretty well.. still looks great; my 1960B dates back to 1999, and still looks new. One interesting side note: many elite class audiophile speakers use HDF (high density fiberboard) or its equivalent, birch plywood for cabinetwork, to get that strong audio delivery, similarly, Marshall uses 15mm birch ply to get its harmonic brilliance and excellent sonic projection. Many drivers costing 5-10 thousand dollars a speaker have this in common.
Fortunately rock aficianados dont have to shell out that kind of cash to get our quality audio. Marshall means quality; top quality. Nothing less than the best. close [-]
by RJW from Yakima, WAThis rugged cabinet is everything I expected, tough, well contructed and sounds great.

Great tone with a brighter edge.
by Richie from Palmyra, PASee my detailed review on the 1960B cabinet page. The 1960 cabinets are the best there is in my opinion. No question about it. I've played through many cabs over many years. My favorite cab is the 196... read more [+]0B model, which has a deeper tone to it, but if you want things a little brighter, this is the best. The 1960A also has a nice crunch to it when you want to deliver that gutsy rock power and it really enhances the 1960B sound. They were made to work well together and they definitely do. You see these an many major tours for a reason. close [-]

A guitar rig can change over time, but the cabinet you play out of doesn't always need to. That statement couldn't be more true with a Marshall 1960 cab. If you're playing rhythm it's going to give you a full and deep sound. If you're playing a lead it's capable of giving you that special growl that jumps out in a mix. My rig has changed over the years countless times, but the 1960A will always be a part of it.
