NOCD: 67 Marhall Straight Cab!

Post by Scumback Speakers » Fri Dec 01, 2017 1:32 pm

Bought this off a forum member a few weeks back. Had a few hardware issues, needed new 2BA T-nuts for the baffle board, some new cheesehead 2BA x 1" speaker bolts, new bolts and T-nuts for the metal handles (narrow flange version, pre 1968), and some speakers.

I dug into my pile and decided to go with a mix of two T1234 G12H30's (102/3 75hz Pulsonic cones) on top, and two T1460 G12H30 (102/14 55hz Pulsonic cones) on the bottom, all 8 ohm.

Wired it up with fresh wire, and tested it out with my 71 JMP 50w at about 8 on the volume knob.

Pretty intense tone from these old original H30's, but you'll need to turn down the treble and presence a bit from G12M models as they have more high end and bass to them.

I flogged it for about 30 minutes...and yeah, that was fun!

Thanks George. You know I love these old cabs if I can get them working again properly.
