Is the Marshall vs412 Cab any good?

Recommended Posts

Ok so I originally planned on getting an avater 2x12 for roughly $400. This is for my bandmaster head.

 

I go into guitar center tonight, and found a marshall vs412 cab that was hidden behind a stack of amps, and it had no price tag.

 

I talk to my boy tommy and he can get it for me at 150 after tax. So I get pretty ecstatic and immediately put it on layaway.

 

Well I get home and check out the reviews on the cab, and there is a lot of shit slinging about this cab. Its about half the weight of a 1960A, I concerned about the sound of the cab itself.

 

The speakers will get me by until I can load some greenbacks or something better in it. so thats not a factor.

 

I can back out of the layaway if its not a good deal. But I can't find much info on the forums about this cab. But it seems like it would suit my needs since I am on such a tight budget.

 

Any clues?

I had to play through one for about a month while I tried out for a band. Doesn't stand up to the 1960 cabs (or any other reasonable cab, really).

 

If you're on a really tight budget grab it.

Same here. Your best bet - if you can't get your money back, pick it up and see what you think. If you're not a fan either, try to sell it for the same as you bought it. Then let it become a distant memory...

those Marshall cabs are junk.

 

 

The Avatars with Vintage 30s can be had for around $300 shipped. :o I have one and it sounds pretty good.

 

 

....i have no idea how you came up with a $400 pricetag unless you are in Canada or something :o

The 2x12 with greenbacks is 360ish, I was just rounding up.

 

 

Thanks for the info guys, I guess I will stick with the avatar, just have some more saving to do.
