The Marshall JMD100/JCM1960A Half Stack puts out beautiful tone at any volume with the JMD100 Head and JCM1960A Cabinet.
The addition of an impedance (4 or 16 ohm) mono/stereo switching mechanism has transformed the industry standard 1960 into the ultimate speaker cab. 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.
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!
The Marshall Stack
If one thing personifies the image of rock 'n' roll more than anything else it's the Marshall 4x12. Though often imitated, nothing compares with the original. The first 4x12 cab was designed and built by Jim Marshall in 1962. Since then they have made many thousands, which have appeared on stages both large and small all over the world.
After the initial success of the Marshall 4x12, it wasn't too long before they designed and built the first stack, where an angled cabinet sits on top of a straight fronted cab, with the amplifier placed on top. This came about after discussions with Pete Townshend of The Who. Pete and Jim Marshall sat down and discussed The Who's requirements for an 8x12 cab with an angled top. This was designed and built, but due to this awesome cab being somewhat cumbersome, only 6 were ever made.
As a result, Marshall came up with the more practical idea of stacking an angled cab on top of a straight fronted model. Thus the famous Marshall stack was born. What happened to the six 8x12 cabs do we hear you ask? Well, two went to Pete Townshend, two went to John Entwhistle and the remaining two went to the Small Faces. The Marshall stack, on the other hand, has stayed in production ever since and has gone on to become the most recognizable rock 'n' roll icon.
