Hey guys.. was just wondering, cause alot of people say that the marshall 1936 cabs from back in the days sound much better than the new ones that are made to day..

So, how old do they have to be to get that "back-in-the-days sound" ?

as I don't know what you consider a "back-in-the-days sound" I really can't answer that question... I play a Marshall Modern Vintage 4x12" and i think the sound is pretty back in the days, although it's new...

Usually, it's the speakers concerned.
Marshall's old Greenback's go for a hell of a lot of money because people believe there tone is superiour to the speakers of today.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

They probably were but magnets deteriorate over time losing their magnetism. Paper cones soften changing their response. You can still get modern day cab's that are just as good as the "old days". What you're looking for are things like multi-ply Birch cabinets and vintage (lower power handling) style crafted speakers to get close to the old sound.
Moving on.....
