The Best of The Best

I have had this cab now fror around 1 year and it has never let me down, I used the 2x12 version before and thought that was great but I just wanted that bit more and you really do feel the difference in the amount of air this thing pushes!
I use this with the Marshall JCM 2000 and I have finally found the sound I have been wanting for the best part of 4 years I play heavy rock/metal/thrash and this set up suits it very well.
In conclusion this cabinet is very sturdy, sounds brilliant and I will never buy any other cab.
I don't see why you would want anything else

I've used the Marshall 1960a 4x12 cab for many years now, both in the studio and on stage and it has never let me down. The Celestion GT-75 speakers inside have great bass and high responses.
When I’m playing live and the kit is shared everyone wants to use my cab, it sounds great no matter what head you put into it. I currently run a Peavey 5150 II head and a Digitech GSP1101 pre-amp and I am really picky about my sound and the 1960a is just perfect. It will last long as well: mine has be been bashed about a lot, not deliberately though, and it is still going. The tolex covering and front cloth needs a re-do but that’s to be expected from any cab.
The only other cab I’d suggest looking at is the B cab variant of this, as with all A cabs the top part has been 'shaved' off which does mean the overall volume of the cab is less than the B cab, another consideration is that an A cab's speakers all do point in a slightly different direction so the sound will be different at different parts of the stage. Plus side of this however is that if you’re in a venue with no monitors you can hear the A cab more then the B cab.
Either way buy some version of this cab. It will be the best purchase you ever make. The cabinet is so important, buy a good one or risk ruining your tone. That’s my view.
This is the probably the most used cabinet for a reason

I've been using this cabinet for a while now and honestly I'm still amazed by all the definition you can get with it. I use it with a Marshall JMP 50w head.
The four Celestion speakers give you the highest sound fidelity you can want in a cabinet. Also, you have a great bass range definition since this a 4x12 cabinet so all the palm-mute stuff sounds just great.
Finally I would like to state that this cabinet could easily live forever. I got mine from another player who had been using it for some years and, honest to good, this cabinet has got all the possible falls and blows you can think and it's still working without having been to the technician even once.
