Some of the newer 1936 cabs are made with MDF which is a no-no...
About 2 years ago I had one with an MDF back and baffle, I couldn't believe my eyes when found the mdf delight inside... Explained everything..Great idea for a cab but it was easily the most lifeless cab I've ever used in stock...

Dr.D wouldn't waste his time putting one on ebay...
Which matchless amp does the loud/clean thing?
I've played this model and for the life of me I cannot recall the model. But what I do recall was this amp only had a limited amount of knobs, and had the loud clean punch of a hiwatt..
Tryed contacting matchless haven't heard back as of yet...
Early 80's 2203 with 6550's , 100 watter
86' 2205, 50 watter
1960A OCLE Cab
The redbear doesn't say "marshall" on it, but its a straight 2203 clone with russian equivalent tubes, it kept up Fine with the 2203s..
Both the 2203 and the Redbear pushed with a...
A buddy of mine is using a 4104 2x12 combo, low input channel, dime the master vol and use pedals for dirt- just did a vid with him running the marshall
theres a few vids here
the 2nd video is live, marshall 1936 cab with G1275's and...
I'll know tonight for sure, have about 15 cables to roll up for orders- then I'm going to fart around with the cab, I need to figure it out, I want to start playing again and all I have at the moment is little 5 watt amps that arent Pedal friendly and Half/full stacks..
Not in the mood to be...
The compression is whats killing me- it makes my Mesa sound like it has 3 layers of compression on the drive stage in comparison to going into my other 2x12 open back which sounds open, uncompressed and GOOD.
thats why I was asking about maybe making it an open back or 1/3 open back..
Recently I picked up a Marshall 1936 2x12 cab- the speakers are somewhat lacking in the sounding good dept. The woofers choke out at louder volumes with a 50 watt head and the general sound stage seems poor . its virtually new, bought it off a guy who was Feening for money at the music store, he...
I don't personally own one, but I have put about 30 hours in on a Deluxe and bandmaster at my hang out music shop over the last 2-3 months- great sounding amps, for the money I'll take a VM over anything else new in that price range- Great gain sounds, the cleans are crisp & defined- the Delay...
There was a member here who made Aftermarket Mesa boogie headboxes- anyone have a name or email? or even a website for such things?
I'm looking to turn my heartbreaker 2x12 combo into a head so its not as much of a back breaker.
For the past 6 months I've been on the same "quest" for a good pedal amp.
Ultimately after buying/trying/demoing 13 amps since July I'm right back to Marshall JCM800 2203s and 2205 heads dialed in. Sucks to move a 4x12 around so I'm looking at those sour mash oversized 1936 2x12 cabs for $300...
does it break up with lots of boost/drive???
my biggest concern is my drive stage-
running a klon>OCD>Wampler pinnacle>Box of rock for low gain- and theres modulation and delay further down the signal path which ends up at a Boss DD-20 which I use for splitting out to Two amps for stereo.
Again I'm sort of ampless- minus some JCM800's which don't pedal so great. Sold off much of my displeasing amps and I have a wad of $$ for some amps.
Dr.Z Maz 18?
any suggestions??- I'm sick and tired of Fenders..
Thought about hiwatt- tried 2- Loud but not for me.
Open to any...
29 year old mint condition marshall..
don't molest it.
don't modify it.
don't blow it up.
Its somewhat rare to find a clean/un molested early 80's JCM800 that survived the without a circuit, hair metal spandex,neon paint, or leopard print grill cloth mod..
