Product Highlights

Product Description

The 1960BV is loaded with G12 Vintage 70W speakers. This cabinet has a thicker, warmer sound than the 1960A with a fat, well-defined midrange and a more rounded high end that sparkles nicely while not being overly bright. It also has a good low end "chunk" which never gets "boomy." Some have called the Vintage bass kick "tuneful." Although the low end of the 75 Watt Celestion used in 1960As and Bs is more "in your face" (or should I say, "chest"?!) than the VIntage, it might interest you to know that the latter is the first choice of modern metal "crunch" masters such as James Hetfield (Metallica), Dave Mustaine (Megadeth) and Dino Cazares (Fear Factory)...all of whom use 1960BV cabs.

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 Marshall has 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 six 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 recognisable rock 'n' roll icon.

As they invented the stack, Marshall 4x12's are the only true originals. Everything else is merely an imitation.

Stereo and Speaker Options
To ensure the ultimate in flexibility, four of the standard 4x12's are switchable from mono [4 or 16 Ohms] to stereo [8 Ohms per side]. These are the 1960A/B and 1960AV/BV.

All of the stereo/mono 4x12's are perfect for use with stereo rack systems.

Heavy duty castors are fitted as standard to all Marshall full size 4x12's to ensure that these cabinets are ready to roll without rocking.

No sharp metal edges or rough fittings - the smooth ABS plastic Marshall corner fits perfectly and offers excellent protection to all eight cabinet corners.

Marshall's highest quality woodwork includes the 'corner locking' of each and every joint. This helps give Marshall cabinets the incredible strength and durability which has become as legendary as the Marshall sound itself. Heavy-duty Grab Handles are fitted to all Marshall cabinets. Their tough, ergonomic recessed casing design gives easy access to the bar of the handle without affecting the cabinet's smooth lines.
