Not sure about that mesa.
See, the big thing about their cabs is that celestion makes the original v30s for them exclusively, so if two are missing, a big piece of the value is missing.

But then again, it's only $250 and you could just get 2 current v30s and put them in an x pattern.
It'd surely be better than what you have at the moment for melodic hardcore if that marshall cab of yours still has the stock speakers.

MF280 cabs are nice, but a mesa 4x12 is a better cab. Both are oversized but the Mesa is made of 100% marine grade birch ply and has metal handles. The Marshall is made of mostly ply, but has a MDF back panel and plastic handles.

like Spambot said the Mesa V30 is a bit different, but you can get them from mesa for $130. It is also worth noting that the V30's in the MF280 are slightly different than the typical V30 that is normally used it has the V30L which is a slightly tweeked version of the V30.

It comes down to personal preference. You have a MF280 (which is very similar to a Mesa recto 4x12 in sound) I would go for the Orange 2x12 for a smaller more portable set-up. I recently bought a 2x12 cab for a more portable rig, I typically use a Krank Rev 4x12 which is huge. Orange PPC212 cabs sound really big and $350 for one in good shape is a deal for sure.

But in the end what do you think? You can get Mesa cabs in good shape for $400 any day, it will cost over $500 to put 2 more V30's in it with the price of the cab included. Either will be easy to sell if and when that time comes

I've got a MF400 cab and a recto cab, and I pulled two speakers from each and swapped them. The Mesa is just a tad bit better built, but the Marshall is very solid as well. The sound difference is pretty small. Like really really small with the speakers being the same.
