    Thinking for a JVM 410HJS A&B full stack. I have a stack of stock a and b lead cabs now with the g12t-75s. 1960v,1960x or 1960hw. For 60s 70s 80s 90s classic/hard rock. Cream,Trafic,Hendrix,Zeppelin,AC/DC,Bad Co,Skynyrd,Aerosmith,Motley,Maiden. OK enough of that . The list could go on forever. My first thought was av and bv but ax and bx are a toss up. Before anyone asks "YES" must be marshall. Anyone love their tone so much you just have to share? please do. Thanks

    Just my opinion as a very amateur level guitarist, but for me, when the question is speakers and cabinets, the answer is always "1960A with Greenbacks". That is the cabinet sound that I genuinely prefer over everything else I've tried out yet. Doesn't matter if the tone is clean, mean, or downright obscene, you know what I mean?

    Looks like the 1960 AX and BX with g12-m greenbacks.

    Hi rooster001 and :welcome: to the forum!!

    I'll add the below to the mix! One of the best cabs I've ever owned! :dude:

    The Marshall Vintage Modern 425A angled cab and 425B straight guitar speaker extension cabinets are traditional Marshall 4 x 12 speaker cabs in design. These cabs are mono/stereo switchable and are loaded with G12C 25 Watt Celestion Greenbacks. These were specifically developed for the Limited Edition Jimi Hendrix Super100JH stack and are voiced to give that rich and balanced harmonic timbre that complements vintage tone and the Vintage Modern Series perfectly.

    Thanks Stringtree
    I will look into them for sure. I know for sure I can get a 1960 AV/BV
    ,AX/BX or an AHW/BHW $2,300 out the door.

    Whereas some heads really pair up with some cabs...like a Jubilee and Vintage 30's, The JVM can sound great with any of them.

    For general monkeying around, the JVM and a 1960 B cab gives me that low end I like.
    for band mix and stage, the 1960AV cab cuts through and lets me hear everything.

    Regarding the Joe Satriani signature JVM410HJS and not the standard JVM410H, I'd go with either a Celestion G12T-75 first, then a perhaps a Celestion Vintage 30. The times I have used the Joe Satriani JVM410HJS, the low end seemed a little flubby on some channels/modes, but the G12T-75 helped tighten up the low end and gave the sound a good "punch" overall.

    Those amps were built to Joe's specs which included the Celestion 75's as a standard match up for it. I use the B cab with 75's as it has a more complete sound to me.

    I've tried Vintage 30's and Greenbacks but neither of them did if for me.

    I have heard your head through a pulsonic coned greenback cab from 1973, and it kills.
    I have also heard the same head through an 80s cab with the older G12 75. That killed too.
    (they are nothing like the modern G12 75, youtube it)

    The next best thing would be well broken in modern greenbacks.
    My two cents.
