    I borrowed a Jaguar loaded Randall cab in about 1985. Could've had it cheap but went with the Celestion 80w 4x12 for the same price. I do remember liking the Randall. Never hear much about them.

    I have a 1968 B cab and it sounds spectacular! :hiP I have 20W heritage reissues in it .... much like the original equipment.

    I bet it did! V30's are my absolute least favorite speaker and t-75's are just kind of average. No surprise. The fact that it was better than the greenback cab, is however impressive!!

    I've got two Marshall cabs. A mid/late 70s 1982A w/G12H30s with bass cones (55hz) and a 2000 1960BX with RI Greenbacks. They both sound amazing with my Marshalls. Hard to pick a fav!

    No, you need a flertzenberger schlizzback loaded with creamy dirtzenhoffers. (make sure they're the 44.673hz berylium oxide ones!)

    Just get an old Marshall cab with GOOD greenbacks or H30's and be done with it.

    I have a slew of vintage Marshall cabs with vintage speakers and they are only worth the premium for a collector because Scumback has done such a fantastic job in coping them. I personal favorite is the bass come greenback. I think these are under appreciated. I like a warm tone smooth tome and they give me that plus they get terrific treble tones with an amp or pedal that pushes those frequencies without ever sounding harsh.

    I have played the YJM and own a 1987X and for me the standard 1960 cab with 75's sounded best with the YJM and a Hiwatt with Fanes for the 1987X.

    Maybe there's better options, but these work great, especially with humbuckers.

    I agree with Alex. There are so many builders making fantastic vintage 4x12 replicas, vintage only makes sense if you're a collector. Pick the builder you like, and throw some Scumbacks in it. Done.

    That would be hard to beat. Depends though, on what style of music you play. But overall, the M and H combination kicks some serious ass.

    Really nice setup Dan, what Brand/Model of Guitar-Rack is that?


    My 1972 Slant Cab w/Greenbacks 102/3 pulsonic cones.
    This cab as only used with a 50 watt head so it's in good shape
    and all 4 speakers have the original cones.
    I have Creamback and Blackback Cabs also, but this cab is the one that sounds magic.
    And the surprise is, Jim Marshall signed the inside cab back in 72.
    All these years I never knew it because I never open the cab up.

    Typically, did Marshall flip the back panel so the 1/4" speaker jack was at the top, or the bottom?
    I need to open the cab again and see if the cables will allow the jack at the top.
    These pics were taken years ago and one of my guys put it back together.

    Celestion Greenbacks and a Marshall 4x12. I think the rock stars back in the day pretty much knew it.... the tone is legendary! :band I like B cabs, but A cabs are very cool too ... it's a toss up. Old looking cabs are the best.

    My fave with my Super Lead is my Marshall 4x12 with original Celestion GS12H30 55 hz bass speakers. Ironically, I never get to use it...
