    NOCD: 67 Marhall Straight Cab!

    Bought this off another 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...yeah, that was fun!

    Nice cab, but I doubt it's 67.

    Logo is broken, and I believe a replacement. The inside bracing is 67, and it has the narrow flange metal handles, which ended in early 68.

    I have a 67 stack here already, and it has the same brace at the bottom of the baffle board as they do, with Nov 67 G12M 20w in the slant.

    So it's definitely 67 or early 68, but I only had PUlsonic cone H30's from 1971-74 to put into it, so it's a mutt cab, but it sounds pretty good!

    Why thank you, rlp! I've got a few quads of old speakers here still in boxes. As I find appropriate cabs I'll scoop them up and fill them in with the ones I have left. Merry Xmas to you!

    We may not be best buds or anything lol, but I gotta give credit where credit is due and I for one, as well as many others here too I'm sure, know that you are a expert at these things and certainly know what your talking about.

    I hope you have a wonderful Xmas as well Jim! Enjoy your holidays.

    OK......if you say so. I've no interest in a pissing contest, but that's not from 67.

    I wish I new how to date mine. A cab, no tears, all original parts/speakers minus castors. The tolex is rough on the bottom as a result but this late 60's basketweave cab is in remarkable condition. Sounds great.
    The older I get, the better I was.
