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.
Marshall 1960A Cabinet
Can say more about the cabinet! I have purchased an A and B and it is the sound I was looking for!!
Amazing Rich Sound!
Love the way this cab pairs with my Mesa Dual Rec. Normally on high gain settings, I dial out a decent portion of presence and treble to avoid harsh or brittle tones but this cab smooths all of that out! I find my self actually cranking the presence and treble back in. It is super dynamic and responsive and the tonal character of both my ODs and high gain are rich and smooth.
this cab and a dsl100 head are a great combo
Enough can't be said about a 1960 cab!
One of the Best Cabs Out There
Short and to the point:
- Great Marshall tone and sound
- Built great / sturdy
- Made in England (not China - yeah!)
- Great low end
- Great mids and highs
- Looks cool
You will not be disappointed to have this in you lineup.
Excellent cabinet. Excellent sound. I needed a reference to compare my speaker cabinet designs to. I found one.

1960A: Elite class cabinet from Marshall.. The best of the best
I 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. Matched with Celestion (the best rock speaker maker), these cabs are superlative. Made with excellence.
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.
This rugged cabinet is everything I expected, tough, well contructed and sounds great.
Great tone with a brighter edge.
See 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 1960B 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.
This is easily one of the best cabs out there.Nothing comes close when its a Marshall!
