King Loudness's review"Not bad, but there is better"

Marshall 1936
The Marshall 1936 cabinet comes in at about $500 new, which is a decent deal considering that it's a proper British made cabinet that is loaded with a set of genuine Celestion speakers. The construction of this cabinet seems to be reasonably robust. The guitarist in my band has one and it has been in my jam room for several months and we have loaded our rigs up to take to gigs. This cabinet has always seemed very light to me, which is definitely a plus. I'm a small guy and I'm able to grab this cabinet and just go. it also seems durable as far as the quality of the wood and tolex that are used.

The tone of this cabinet isn't really much to get excited about. I'm not really one to sing the virtues of Marshall gear and this cab is no exception. Now I'm not saying this is a BAD sounding cabinet, but I'm definitely not that impressed. The stock Celestion speakers are really grainy sounding and have a really scooped out midrange that just makes my coguitarist's DSL sound like a tin of bees. This isn't the case all the time, but there have been many occasions where he'll be playing and I'll just shake my head. I have run his amplifier through my Vintage 30 loaded 2x12 cabinet and it's just a night and day difference to me. The V30 loaded cab just sounds fuller and richer, with none of that brash and stray high end that the T75s do. I wouldn't mind hearing a 1936 cabinet loaded with some V30s or different, less scooped speakers, but since Marshall is shipping the cabinets with these speakers as stock OEM equipment, it does impact my rating.

All in all I think the Marshall 1936 cabinet isn't a bad purchase for someone looking for a decently built and reasonbly priced cab. Next to something like a Mesa Rectifier 2x12 or something from a smaller company such as Avatar or Whitebox though... and there really isn't any comparison to me.

Marshall 1936
Mine is a JCM 800 lead which must date from the early 80
Balèze enough in size, very good bass response, not too heavy (24kg), seems extremely solid, rock n roll look, at least mine seems to have a fight with a bunch of tigers and be losing out (cuts in the grid, Tolex scratched and torn in places but what a mouth! worse and the logo is still there ...)

I paid 315 euros with 2 Vintage 30 on the buttocks so a deal in gold!

Marshall 1936
Trs good speaker, Polyval, not too bulky, compared qualitprix unbeatable (half the price that boogie), although sturdy supporting transport rguliers.
I use a Marshall 1959SLP rcente head, the sound is simply mangnifique, although vintage.
Having chosen to report a sound / space / affordable, I am quite satisfied.

Marshall 1936
I use it recently, and I must say that I have t trs surprised.
First, the aesthetic:
I find that he has a mouth of hell, it is not too large,
without being either stunted.
Then the sound:
the housing allows more than adequate
get a good big bass without drooling too.
distos the balances are no problem, the grain of the amplifier is returned,
the G12T-75 Grente many potatoes of the amp.
same attention when it is not a vintage30 ...
I 'have full test before I DCID (marshall, mesa, engl, also a VHT)
and this one suited me perfectly. quality price ratio infallible, it has everything
for him. the choice to use that I 'is in any case, the silent
best. may be later I was sticking the celestion v30, who knows ...

Marshall 1936
I use it for 6 months and jai quickly chang the HP trs for Fanes hand because I was looking for Celestion Vintage 30 CTAIT but too expensive. The Original HP are pretty good but lack a little precision, if not the boot is of good quality. I mounted on wheels as he tops with triple hh weight!
Jaime-out its sleek look and efficient, what Marshall! its size is rather rsonnable for a 2x12 "and it helps to have good natural bass.
Jai-test other firms and notably a 4x12 "and a 1960 2x12" Mesa / Boogie, the 1936 is doing pretty good directivity and low issue.
Lai-I bought a used 300 HP 70 + the two makes me a super ca 2x12 "for very cheap.
With experience, I do it again this election if I hesitated a 4x12 "but it's even a shame not to have good original Hp! Is like a good car but you have to change the engine), but now with a little budget, I look more to a 2x12 "ENGL (especially as a jai ENGL head now: D!) I put 8 with Original HP maisje now put 9 I lai customs.

Marshall 1936
Speakers: 2x12 G12T-75W S88
Power output: 150 Watts (2x75W)
Impedance: Mono / Stereo options: stereo 16 ohm / 8 ohm mono
Dimensions: 600mm x 750mm x 310 mm
Weight: 24.6 Kg

Anyone knowing a jack plug will use this material ...

I use this speaker with an amp Peavy Ultra Plus (120W lamp) ... And it sounds perfectly fine! The speaker faithfully reproduces the warm sound of my tube amp ... And for those concerts, no problem, the power output is more than enough to shake the walls ...

The major advantage of 1936 over a 1960A 4x12 cabinet or other Marshall home is that it is portable! And since I carry it in a staircase, the 1936 is the effective alternative to a big firm 38 kilos back to peter ...

I use it for 4 years now ... And what I like in this particular speaker, so it's shape and weight ... I tried many other models from Marshall, but I did not feel quite marked difference in noise level to choose a larger model ... I would do this choice easily ...
