Your Backline Isn't a REAL Backline Without This Cab!Nothing personifies the image of rock 'n' roll more completely than a wall of Marshall stacks. Though often imitated, nothing compares to the original. The 1960BV is the straight version that features 4 Marshall/Celestion Classic speakers and is the perfect addition to your stage or recording rig! It's ideal for players who appreciate a lot of low end, without all the boomyness.
Marshall 1960BV at a Glance:
- Thicker, warmer sound than an angled cab
- Incredibly flexible 4x12 straight cab
- Sonically speaking, nothing compares to a Marshall amp
- Low End That Never Gets Boomy
- Rugged and ready for the road
The Ultimate in Flexibility
To ensure the ultimate in flexibility, the 1960A (angled) and the 1960B (straight), is selectable between Mono (4 or 16 Ohms) and Stereo (8 Ohms per side). The two Mono impedance options provide extra amp matching capability while the cabinets' stereo capability makes them ideal for rack systems which typically run in stereo.
Low End That Never Gets Boomy
This has a thicker, warmer sound than the 1960A with a fat, well-defined midrange and a rounded high end that sparkles nicely while not being overly bright. It also has a good low end "chunk" which never gets "boomy."
Offers That Low-End Thump
B (Base) cabinets offer some sonic differences. A straight cab sounds more focused and has more low-end thump. The more size offers the cabinet a lower resonant frequency for more low-end. All speakers facing the same direction provides a more focused sound. Many players prefer to use only the B cabs, even when they are on stage with a full stack. Zakk Wylde (Ozzy's guitarist) uses only the B cabs because of the tighter low end and because (believe it or not) he values his hearing and the sound from the B cab doesn't hit him straight in the head.
The only choice for serious musicians. Nothing compares to Marshall cabinets in terms of stellar tone and projection. Both visually and aurally, Marshall 4x12 cabs are indeed rock and roll history in a stack!
Ready For Your Gig - Wherever That Might Be!
Roadworthiness is a vital prerequisite in the world of relentless touring and as Marshall's 40 years of cabinet building attests, Marshall cabinets are definitely made to stand the test of time! Their highly skilled craftsmen construct these 4x12s from the coolest materials available - 15mm birch plywood with precision 'finger locked' (comb) joints, tough cotton backed PVC covering, heavy duty hardware and the best fittings.
Weighing in at around 80 lbs, the JCM1960BV is made of 15mm birch plywood (except for the back panel, which is medium density fiberboard) and made for tone, projection, and durability. The majority of cabinet construction is done by hand.
