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.
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.
