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 1960B is the straight 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 1960B 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 1960B 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 cab. 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.
Offers That Low-End Thump
B (Base) cabinets offer some sonic differences. A straight cab sounds more focused and has more low-end thump. The additional size gives the cabinet a lower resonant frequency for more low-end. All speakers facing the same direction gives a more focused sound. Many players prefer to use only the B cabs, even when they are on stage with a full stack. Zakk Wylde (Ozzy's guitarist) uses only the B cabs because of the tighter low end and because (believe it or not) he values his hearing and the sound from the B cab doesn't hit him directly in the head.
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 JCM1960B 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.

Marshall 1960B, one stunningly good cab
by Alex G from Nashville, Tenn USAI have several Marshall cabs, some of several designs. I'm starting my third decade as a Marshall cab owner, and love my 1960B. It has a different output than a 1960A, more bass oriented, deeper. I gu... read more [+]ess each model has different qualities to offer.

My 1960B dates back to 1999 and still looks perfectly new. It looks gorgeous, sounds fabulous, and is built like a tank. What more can you ask for as an owner and musician. There is no better speaker maker than Great Britain's Celestion.
Marshall stands for top quality, and this product delivers. close [-]
LOOK NO FURTHER! You have found the best one!
by Richie from Palmyra, PABackground? I've always played music from edgy blues, fusion, Classic rock, hard rock to 80s style metal. I've played through quite a few different cabinets over the past few decades. I've owned a few... read more [+] different brand cabinets and played through others in rehearsal and recording studios. Some sounded really nice and others broke up or had a flat sound. I've owned both the 1960A and B model Marshall cabs and played through some of their other models. To me, there is no better sounding guitar speaker cabinet than the Marshall 1960B. None! The A Model has a brighter sound that compliments the B model nicely, but to have one cabinet, it's gotta be the B if you're asking me! As with all Marshall and other amp products, you have to find the amp and cab that fits your style and playing the best, but ...... I can almost guarantee that once you find your amp head, no matter who makes it, you'd pick a 1960B as your cabinet in a side by side comparison with the other cabs. It has a nice warm, chunky tone to it. I like a fat, chunky, growling tone that also lets the higher screaming notes ring out in all their sonic glory and it delivers. The louder you get, the stronger the tone gets. When I back things off it cleans up with character. It's very well built. I used to have 2 full stacks, 2 A and 2 B cabs (pre stereo versions). I dragged them around the NYC and NJ clubs and studios for about 12 years and they were still ready to rock when I sold them, which I only did to buy recording gear. I now use only one of these newer stereo 1960B cab, although I use it in mono configuration and it's one piece of gear that never gets second guessed. I can't imagine anything better coming along. That's why it's hard to find a concert stage without at least one of these on it.

You can find less expensive gear, but one thing I learned a long time ago is that the wrong gear will hold you back and sometimes, severely. Having lower quality gear is like having a resistor on your playing skills. When you want to show the people what you're made of, it's important to have a guitar that lets you play your best, an amp that really delivers what you are playing in a strong, expressive way, high quality effects that properly enhance what you play and a speaker set up that pours it out with character and without losing any of what you gave it. That's all I have to say about that. close [-]
