- Two inputs for stereo amplifier heads.

- Four 75-watt 12" Celestion speakers

- 4/8/16-ohm selector for stereo or mono operation, or to setup an additional cabinet like the 1960A .

- Rewired with 2.5mm cables! It's so good...

- Small gauge Proco cable and Fender Platinum instrument cable

- Engl Thunder and/or Mesa Single Rectifier amp heads.

The front panel is slightly slanted to the top so that the sound doesn't stay on the ground.

Good imaging. This speaker cabinet reproduces all attacks and nuances of your playing, as well as all amp setting variations. Don't stay in front of the GT12T speakers because they are very loud. Their measurement diagram shows it clearly. The cabinet is very good and provides much better vibrations than the slanted 1960A. Slanted cabinets don't look so nice and their design is an aberration for the internal vibrations. Slanted cabinets should have chambers, not the 1960A.

The 1960B can produce heavy lows that stay on the ground. Mids and highs have a higher dispersion. Thus it sounds aggressive, full and dynamic, but V30 speakers would provide better results (because of the high-frequency boost of the GT12T speakers).

I find the sound less sharp for recording applications, but that depends on many parameters.

I wouldn't buy it again because it's not the time for me to have two cabinets!

The value for money is great for a secondhand model. But with a bit more money you can buy another cabinet with V30 or G12M Greenback speakers.
