I was looking through the gear at the pawn shop around here, and I saw a marshall cab. I didn't see the price, and it didn't say what cab it was on the tag. I was wondering how I could tell what type of cab it is. Also, if it were a decent one, would it go well if I hooked it up with a Peavey 6505/5150?

if its a 1960a or jcm900/800 cab it will work fine with a 6505, but if its a avt or mg cab dont bother buying it

Usually, the model, impedence, all that stuff is on the back where the input jack is.
1960A
1960B
JCM 900
JCM 800
all yes

VS4x12
MG4x12
no

Not that they are bad cabs, they just wont work for your head.
