"Marshall 1936 2x12 cabinets Rocks!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
If I had $5 thousand dollars, I would have purchase a Fuchs TDS 100 plus 2x12 cabinet. This cabinet is a keeper for a long time. I may sell one of my 2 1960, 4x12 cabinets.
Sound
I use my Marshall 1936 cab with a JCM 900 and JCM 2000 TSL. I would characterize the sound to the Marshal 4x12 cabinet on steriods. The response on this cabinet is faster than the Marshall 1960,4x12 cabinet. It's more focused. This cab will rock if you you push it. With a 4x12 cab, you have to play very loud to get a good sound to avoid the "buzz sore" sound. Normally, with my 1960 cab I would keep the treble, mids and presence down low to avoid the high frequency sound due to low volume settings. With the 1936 cab, I was able to dial up my treble, mids and presence (4,3,5 respectively) and get better clean and lead tones. The boutique amp manufacturers figured out the science behind pushing 2 speakers instead of 4 with a 100 watt amp head. Trying to drive a 4x12 cabinet with a 100 watt head translates into diminishing sound quality at low volume because the configuration is not efficient. Moving four 12" speakers with 25 watts each and retaining good sound quality goes again the physics. Unfortunatedly, this means large venus (or outside) and not clubs would be the best place for 4x12 cab. And finally, a 2x12 would be better suited for clubs and recording studio. Needless to say, the 1936 cab is a keeper!
Features
Mono or Stereo what else could you ask for in a speaker cab. Although the idea of using stereo outside of recording doesn't make sense for one cabinet due to spacing of the speakers.
Ease of Use
Plug in the right input and rock.
Quality
I read a lot of reviews wining about the construction and materials not being up to Marshall's earlier years of construction quality. Listen up boys and girls, you get what you pay for. If you want solid wood, airplane grade metal and fail safe casters like Fuchs amps you better be willing to pay $5 grands for it. In short, Stop expecting your equipment to take a licking and keep on ticking! Take care of your amps and cabs like your guitars.
Value
Considering that it costs me 95% of what I paid for a 4x12 cabinet ten years ago including inflation, I would say that it's worth it.
Manufacturer Support
Never had the experience of needing them.
The Wow Factor
It's a Marshall! It looks sexy having my JCM 900 or JCM 2000 TSL sitting on top.

"Marsha, Marsha, Marshall!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Sound
I've owned two of these cabinets, one with the standard GT75's, and one with a different Celestion config. Speaking strictly of the GT-75's as currently sold here, it's a really good cabinet. I match it up with a JCM 900 head, and it sounds excellent. There is more low end to this cabinet than you might expect, and it fits snugly in the trunk of a Neon!
Features
Good quality Celestion speakers, and recessed mono/stereo jacks. No, it's not made of the most exotic woods, but it sounds good and is durable!
Quality
I think it's made well. Like most Marshall gear, it's built for the road and is very durable.
Value
It could be a bit less expensive, but is the perfect compliment to a Marshall head for small/medium gigs.
Manufacturer Support
Can't say for sure. Always worked 100%.

"Marshall 1936 2x12 cab"
As a die hard Marshall fan, I love this 2x12 cab. Number one, I don't have to lug around my 1960 4x12 as much anymore. Number two it has a much tighter sound and a lot of tone. Very happy with this purchase. If I had anything negative to say about it, is the price is pretty steep... It costs more than a 4x12 1960.

"1936 cabinet from 20 years ago"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Bought one in 1999 from a local music store in Toms River New Jersey. Needed cash had to sell it. I always wanted to replace it.I do shop at zZounds. Even now at 60 years old, when I'm ready to buy another one I'll call zZounds
Sound
The only reason I gave it a 9 on recommendation is because everything is subjective to the musician I know my jcm 900 with the 1936 cabinet 150-watt and my Les Paul with P90s without pedals would go up against anything I never ever didn't get a compliment every gig I played at.

"Great cab if you want that Marshall 4x12 sound without the weight"
Sound
Sound is very direct--very close to my 4X12 cab.

Wish they would have included the 4 wheel casters. Does have both mono and stero hookups.

It does nick and tear easly. I'm just more careful now.

I got it cheaper someplace else and for the money I spent, can't beat it.
