"The modern chest pounding original"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
You can't go wrong with these if you are looking for a cab that provides chest pounding mids.

Sound
This model with Celestion GT-75 speakers ( as opposed the the 'vintage' model with Celestion V30's ) IMO sounds the best overall especially if you want the angled cab version. I GT-75's are less pronounced in the high end so it tends to smooth out or sweeten the high end of tube amps.. the speaker also provides more dampening so while is has a stiffer tone it really holds tone togather and is nice an punchy.. less prone to overextending and for me is easier to listen to for longer periods of time. This model is also better for the angled cab where you will be getting more highs projected from the center of the cone.. these angled cabs don't have less bass responce it it just a more balanced response with direct and indirect speaker waves reaching your ear. Marshall abs are on the thinner side of some modern day cabs ( mesa's, Randall, Diamond cabs have been my experience ). So are not the most bass oriented cabs but the Marshall have that great mid punch to the chest which is what I really like.

Features
I give this an 8.. the castors sockets are basically plastic. Corners are plastic, jack plates are plastic so are not super durable features.. cab is wired for stereo .. which is a plus. I love the black elephant covering .. but the covering does tend to get read more tacky when warm which causes it to really catch and tear if bumped into things.. but it is so classic ... I sholdn't complain about the tolex, I wouldn't want it any other way... like complaining that a stunningly beautiful girl is spoiled.

Ease of Use
Good.. not a crazy heavy cabinet.. nice balance placement of the side handles.

Quality
See my feature comments.. not the epitomy of ruggedness but it is the standard.

Value
compared to everything else.. this cab with GT-75's is a good deal

Manufacturer Support
No experience

The Wow Factor
People either love these cabs or hate them ... It is the modern original 4x12. Even worn and abused these cabs hold their value, sometimes adding to it.... Other cabs worn and abused don't ... that says something.
