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 1960BV is the straight version that features four Marshall G-12 Vintage speakers and is the perfect addition to your stage or recording rig! It's ideal for players who appreciate a lot of low end without all the boom.

Marshall 1960BV at a Glance:
  • The ultimate in flexibility
  • Low end that never gets boom-y
  • Thicker, warmer sound than an angled cab
  • Sonically superior
  • Rugged and ready for the road

The ultimate in flexibility
To ensure the ultimate in flexibility, 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 cabinet's stereo capability makes it ideal for rack systems which typically run in stereo.

Low end that never gets boom-y
This has a thicker, warmer sound than the 1960A with a fat, well-defined midrange and a rounded high end that sparkles nicely while not being overly bright. It also has a good low end chunk which never gets boom-y.

Thicker, warmer sound than an angled cab
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. Having all speakers facing the same direction gives a more focused sound. Many players prefer to use only the B cabs, even when they are onstage 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.

Sonically superior
Marshall is the only choice for serious musicians. Nothing compares to Marshall cabinets in terms of awesome tone and projection. Both visually and aurally, Marshall 4 x 12" cabs are indeed rock 'n' roll history in a stack!

Rugged and ready for the road
Roadworthiness is a vital prerequisite in the world of relentless touring. As Marshall's 40 years of cabinet building attest, Marshall cabinets are definitely built to stand the test of time! Their highly skilled craftsmen construct these 4 x 12"s from the finest materials available - 15mm birch plywood with precision comb joints, cotton-backed PVC covering, heavy-duty hardware, and the highest quality fittings. Weighing in at around 80 lbs., the JCM1960BV 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 1960BV Features:
  • 300-watt 4 x 12" straight cabinet
  • 4-/16-ohm mono and 8-ohm stereo
  • Extra-warm-sounding Marshall G-12 Vintage speakers - rated at 70 watts each
  • Black grille cloth and white piping
  • Large white logo
  • Black elephant grain vinyl
Marshall offers a wide range of cabinets that are not only perfect for your needs, but they will also last you a lifetime!

RE: vintage 30 Marshall Cab THE BEST THERE IS

A few weeks back I took 3 Celestion Vintage 30 speakers out of my shed and had them put in my Marshall 1960A cabinet. Why? Well good question. A month or so back I had my amp in the dealer for new tubes and a check up. and was given the service company's owner's Les Paul to play thru my amp to see if everything was OK. I got the surprise of my life. My buddy's les Paul had a Seymour Duncan APH-1 Pro set of pickups. and the cab I was hooked up to was a Marshall 4x12 full of 4 Vintage 30s. I could not believe the beautiful harmonically rich, meaty, beefy kick butt tone that flowed out of that amp (JCM 2000 DSL100) ..., guitar AND cabinet. So, I went out, got a set of APH-1 Pros for my les paul, and took 4 Vintage 30s out of my shed, and had them put in my cab... It is literally the best sound, the best tone, I have ever heard, anywhere. And I have been around a long time, and heard a lot of the worlds best bands live.. They say the V30 is the closest thing to an Alnico speaker, and was computer tested to sound like the expensive Celestion Blue the real ALNICO speaker.. I believe it. My cab is not this exact 1960VB but it might as well be because it is a Marshall cab with the same Vintage 30 drivers. By the way, these are phenomenal speakers to run a Rickenbacker 12 string through. I tried running them through G12T-75s but that didn't work too well. Ric loves the V30s. Take my word. This is the best there is, short of paying for a 4x12 Marshall cab with Celestion Blue or Gold drivers. This is virtually the cab that Slash uses.. Check out the most recent celestion flyer on tone. And check out the guitarists who use Vintage 30 speakers. It is a who's who list of the most famous guitarists of the last 35 years. Check one of these cabinets out. You will not be disappointed. The best there is in my book.
