What's the best 2x12 Marshall Cab? I'm thinking about getting one becuase I've decided to get a Marshall head too. I can't have a 4x12 so it's gotta be a 2x12 that will be good for playing pretty much anything from clean to distortion. Preferably a good cab for the classic 80's Marshall sound. I'm thinking of a 1936?

If you are in the USA then check out this site http://www.avatarspeakers.com/ you can get a 212 with whatever speakers you want it in (you don't REALLY need the Marshall logo do you)

If in Europe though I'd say the 1936-V (with Vintage 30's) would be a good bet, but to be honest you can get a Framus 212 with the same speakers for cheaper, it just doesn't have the Marshall logo on the front.

Why would you get a Marshall? Aren't the newer ones made of particle board? Go Avatar if in the US like suggested.

Only the AVT, MG, MC, and 1936 (the 2x12) are made of MDF and are all a little sketch.

I wouldn't buy any cabinet lower than a 1960A/B model.

That's what I was referring to. I personally wouldn't buy a Marshall cab, but if I did I wouldn't go lower than that either.

Marshall 1960 cabs can be had for good prices used, I got mine for $350. It gets the job done, when this economy gets better I will probably go for a Mojo or Stone Age cabinet, but until then the Marshall works fine for me. The stock speakers are crap though, I'm getting rid of them ASAP.

Yea, there was one my friend almost bought last week here for $150. It was just torn up cosmetically, it worked fine. I'd rather get a 2X12 but I just prefer the smaller size, I love the tone of a 4X12.
