Greetings,

I have the opportunity to buy a Marshall JCM900 160 Cab from a friend, for a rather low price .

Now, i dont have a head yet, but im planning to get one anyway (Orange tiny terror to start off with probably)

then one : will the Cab handle low punches (fuzz, eq to more low end, and downtuned guitar,heavy stoner rock like electric wizard etc) without getting too "farty" ?

should i look into other cabs.. because i can imagine this four speaker monster actually being way too loud for bedroom play ,(yes planning to gig in the future).

And last, can anyone tell me a bit more about the amp, for some reason the internet has'nt been too kind with info about it

Thanks on Beforehand !

its a 1960 cab, that might help you in your internet searches.

its pretty much the standard rock cab. loads of bands use them and they are solid

how do those marshall handles compare tonewise to, say, mesa handles?

Yes, it's very loud; and it pretty much has the most low end and least fartiness out of all types of guitar cabs.

Try the 1936 2x12 cab.

As in, even lower than that 2x12 when i would buy it new.

But, if i would put a tiny terror on that for home practice and put it at 7 watts, it wont blow up my head i gues ?

No, but it's very loud.
I've played a Tiny Terror through a Marshall 4x12 (can't remember the exact model, it had Celestion G12H's though), and it is loud. Way too loud for practicing at home. Sounded very nice though.

Even when i would'nt crank the volume all the way up ? I'm planning to use mainly pedals anyway to get most of the sound im after, and then cranked up when i'd gig.


So i'd better leave it then i gues ?

Well, of course not, but it's still way too big in most situation. You should take the size and weight into consideration too.

Thanks for all the replies
