I was wondering about the differences in the Marshall 1960 Cabs (1960, 1960V, 1960C, 1960X, and 1960TV), and what features are in each. I have a the 1960BV and I was wondering if I should sell it and buy a new cab because a local shop is having a sale on all of these cabs. I'd like to know which one is overall "the best," in a very general sense. I play alot of lead rock, metal rhythm, and a bit of clean stuff too, if that helps. Thanks.

1960 have gt12-75 speakers. I don't like them (but some people do).

1960V have vintage 30's, far as I know. These are good for a more modern tone, IMO. Lots of mids.

I'm guessing the other ones either have different speakers or different stylings. best bet is to try them to see, and check the marshall website.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Each cab is built different woods, speakers, dimensions..etc. for distinctively different tones and feels. Ive played all these cabs at a boutique shop through a JCM800 and they all sound awesome.


Yes, I quoted myself lol.

The latter 3 all have 25w greenbacks, but they all have generally the same specs and cost around the same.

I'm already familiar with the 1960, and 1960V, but I'd like to know if the ones with greenbacks are any better?

Well Greenbacks are more for a classic rock kind of sound. I think V30's are very versatile, can sound good almost for anything. G12-75's are better for metal i think and are very clean speakers.
