severinsteel's review"Very underrated cab"

Marshall 1960BV
Ok, so Marshall 1960A cabs are literally everywhere. You can find them in probably every major city in the world. But, the 1960B cabs are a lot less prevalent for some reason. I actually much prefer the B cabs because of their straight baffle. They tend to sound a little bit beefier and less piercing. The standard B cabs come with G12T75's which tend to work well with the mid heavy voicing of most Marshalls, but the BV cabs are where it's at! the V in BV stands for Vintage, and that is referring to the Celestion Vintage 30; probably the most popular speaker in rock. They are just very versatile speakers in general. Sounds quality is top notch. Marshall cabs might be a little looser than say a Mesa Rectifier cab, but really they sound great.

My only gripe about Marshall cabs is construction wise. But, I'm not talking about general cab constructions. They do cut corners a bit with the particle board back, but that's not a huge deal. The handles, corners, casters, and switch-plate are all cheap. There is no excuse for this on a 1k cab.

The great thing about Marshall cabs is that you can find them for dirt cheap. There are so many that you can literally buy them for $200 if you find the right cab.

Not the best cab out there, but it does the job very very well.

the first thing I would point out and rectify if possible once and for all and strength to see the error on many forums:
the HP 1960 Vintage Vintage are not 30 ..
First the Vintage 30 are made in China ..!
while 1960 Vintage Made in England Celestion Marshall ..
the technical specifications are not quite the same ..

performance per watt / meter must not be identical ie 100db also for V30 and slightly lower for 1960V ..
the 1960V is called G12V code S81
I put 4 photos meaningful .. Just look ..
for me it is clear, the 1960V smells good quality product particularly cared for a little more difficult Celestion clients (ear ..) than average ..
technically, even if these two HP resembles in appearance, there is a safe bet that the "bowl" (frame), the membrane and the motor (magnet / coil) have nothing identical. .
to the bowl and loving .. the different alloys of iron

namely that the quality of the components of HP are paramount ..
in the case of the two aforementioned models, all this seems to me more than verifiable ..
I return now to the 1960 Vintage ..
the first thing to say is that this cab is definitely for the big, hairy distortion, ca makes warm and distinctive, while retaining a clean and precise ..

in my opinion this cab has certainly been designed precisely for that ..

Meur'saw's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Cream of 1960 ..."

Marshall 1960BV
"Beefy" ... is the word that comes to mind ... mix of original speakers with eminence in wizard ...

its big big ... pe too ^ ^ actually I had to reduce drastically the bass on the amp because I literally bouffais bass frequencies ...

otherwise it is very well balanced, nice grain ... I have tried a lot of cab in concert: 1960 standard, orange, mesa (sometimes we offer speakers on hand to not have any onboard the bazaar, when there's good I do not hesitate!) ... sincerely, I never came across a speaker that made me think about the fact that it would be pe time to change!

very strong, the wheels are essential weighs its weight gear!

and it is this last point that I was recently passed on an 2x12 ... I have tried a lot but obviously I would never find a 2x12 that will have its seat and potato ...

Marshall 1960BV
I use this cabinet for a year and I must say that I jou is never as good on a speaker much better than the 1960 lead of any fawn there is no n RAPORT because it is like even a bit more dear the lead.
-Most of this amp are of course the sound and especially the Polivalente soliditbr /> are the least-carriage, but it is good sport is good to c tellemnt souffrire.
J-mals have tried to model not the only one who was my best part of this one for its polivalance one can rock the blues is the big big sound for metal and goes on most of the crate as head, mesa boogie, randall, etc ...
-The price is resonable but can execiffe but the vo of the shots have the right stuff
