Marshall AVT150H 150W 4-Channel Head and 1960A – 4×12 Slant Cab
This package has noteable wear and tear as it has been on tour.
The AVT150H is a workhorse, it sounds great! The head is in fairly good shape physically.
The 1960A cabinet has many rips in the tolex and has some small tears in the grill cloth. The Marshall logo has been spray painted green by the previous owner to help identify the cabinet. We have fully inspected and tested this gear to work as it should.
The core of a fabulous stage rig.
You’ll want the Marshall AVT150H Head at all your gigs. The AVT150H is the head version of the AVT150 and boasts all the same features and facilities as its combo brother. This includes the tube preamp and excellent ‘Scoop’ facility. On Overdrive 1 this radically scoops the mid frequencies while tightening the bass for aggressive driving rhythm sounds. On Overdrive 2 the middle is again dipped, but a cut in the upper frequencies smoothes out the sound for a more bass heavy (‘Nu’) Metal selection.

The only choice for serious musicians. Nothing compares to Marshall cabinets in terms of awesome tone and projection. Both visually and aurally, Marshall 4×12 cabs are indeed “the business.”
Great sound and looks however are not everything. Many years of experience mean that Marshall’s speaker cabinets are also built to stand the test of time. Their highly skilled craftsmen construct them from the finest quality materials with precision corner locked joints, tough cotton backed PVC covering, heavy-duty hardware, and the highest quality fittings.
The Marshall Stack
If one thing personifies the image of rock ‘n’ roll more than anything else it’s the Marshall 4×12. Though often imitated, nothing compares with the original. The first 4×12 cab was designed and built by Jim Marshall in 1962. Since then they have made many thousands, which have appeared on stages both large and small all over the world.
After the initial success of the Marshall 4×12, it wasn’t too long before they designed and built the first stack, where an angled cabinet sits on top of a straight fronted cab, with the amplifier placed on top. This came about after discussions with Pete Townshend of The Who. Pete and Jim Marshall sat down and discussed The Who’s requirements for an 8×12 cab with an angled top. This was designed and built, but due to this awesome cab being somewhat cumbersome, only 6 were ever made.
As a result, we came up with the more practical idea of stacking an angled cab on top of a straight fronted model. Thus the famous Marshall stack was born. What happened to the six 8×12 cabs do we hear you ask? Well, two went to Pete Townshend, two went to John Entwhistle and the remaining two went to the Small Faces. The Marshall stack, on the other hand, has stayed in production ever since and has gone on to become the most recognizable rock ‘n’ roll icon.
As we invented the stack, Marshall 4×12’s are the only true originals. Everything else is merely an imitation.
The 1960A is switchable from mono [4 or 16 Ohms] to stereo [8 Ohms per side], and is equipped with Celestion G12T-75 speakers.
The highest quality woodwork includes the “corner locking” of each and every joint. This helps give Marshall cabinets the incredible strength and durability, which has become as legendary as the Marshall sound itself.
Heavy-duty Grab Handles are fitted to all Marshall cabinets. Their tough, ergonomic recessed casing design gives easy access to the bar of the handle without affecting the cabinet’s smooth lines.
No sharp metal edges or rough fittings – the smooth ABS plastic Marshall corner fits perfectly and offers excellent protection to all 8 cabinet corners.
