1960 Marshall cab
Hi, i want to know if this is a good deal, a friend of mine is selling me a very giged Marshall 1960 cab for $250 dlls, it has some cosmetic rips, but the speakers are just fine. Is it a good deal for me to buy?

do you need one? how bad condition, id say thats a good deal thats bout half the price new (depens where you get it)

I currently have a Peavey 5150 cab, i bought it new, but i dont like it that much, i like the marshall jcm900 1960 better, it's not that bad, it has just some cosmetics rips of the tolex, but nothing mayor. And also im currently upgrading my rig because i want to get a Mesa Triple Rectifier, and i just dont think the peavey cab will give me a good sound. So is a good deal right?

yea i would go for it you can always glue the vinyl down(when i got mine there was a 2 inch tear in it that i got the guy to knock off 100$ cause of it then i jsut glued it down and you cant even really tell :D )

$250 for a 1960 cab is an awesome deal... four used g12t-75's without a cab will go for that much, but them being in the cab maeks it a pretty good deal.

rips just make em' look tuff. and it's going to happen after a fair share of moving around anyways.

Yeah!!!! I got it yesterday in around 10 pm, and that thing rocks, it has a more low end sound and i just love it, pretty good deal , doesn't has too much rips, and yeah xdislexicx it makes him look more tough. Thanks guys!!!

Azargoth 2005-01-04 02:25

A Peavey 5150 but i want to upgrade to a Dual Mesa Recto

Rapture 2005-01-04 02:37

you can give me your 5150 if you want. ill build a shrine and worship you

Azargoth 2005-01-04 14:46

hahaha, If i want to upgrade to the dual recto, i have to sell first the 5150, sorry man, but i need tye money hahaha, im selling it for $450 dlls, i'm just waiting for that money to buy me the dual recto. \m/ :) \m/

xdislexicx 2005-01-04 17:35

i consider the recto more of a step sideways than an upgrade... don't let the price difference fool you into thinking it's automatically better...

overall, the recto has better cleans and more flexibility... but something about the overall tone and voicing of the 5150 and 5150 II just seems to have more mojo or something... but to each his own.

try them out side by side and dick with them for like a couple hours...

I've got a 1960 Lead that I fancy. I am running a Mesa Dual Rec. through it so I don't know how much it effects my opinion.

MorbidGuitar 2005-01-04 21:15

got a 1960A with a VS100R head. thats a sweet sounding amp with no effects. I play live death metal with only the amp itself. But Death also uses pretty much the same model head...... and so does deicide now that i think of it.

Azargoth 2005-01-05 02:33

I have tried one Triple Recto xdislexicx, my other guitarrist has one, and i played around with my jackson kelly with EMG's, and the Triple Recto totally rips my 5150, the overall tone is better and yeah the cleans are way too better and more flexibility, such as three channels, and alot of other stuff.

Did you other guitarrist bought the recto??? xdislexicx, Or does he still have the 5150??

xdislexicx 2005-01-05 17:33

well i guess if you like it better go for it...

he wanted one... but doesnt have the money right now... but i'm not in that band anymore.
