    Hello, I am new to this forum. Great thing about internet is forums like this!
    I just purchased a new JVM205H. I want to get a cabinet. I was considering a 2x12 because I don't feel I need the 4.
    So many models to choose from and I don't have the accessablitiy to go play through them.
    I am looking for recommendations. I play Hard rock. Love Joe Satriani and his tone. This is the tone I am seeking.

    mostly speakers but cabinets do make a big difference,...if I was gonna buy a new cab it would probably be a MESA cab,..

    if your going used your options are much better..

    do you mean had had a MARSHALL 1960A or B cab?

    I'm wiling to bet you could find out what joe's entire rig is with a quick google search

    I am fine with used. The JVM head is new and pricey. Don't want to spend a lot on cab.

    I was looking for a 212 for a long time. I love my 412 cabs but some gigs they just dont fit. After a long search, I decided on a Blackstar 212. Got it brand new for $300 bucks. The cab sounds excellent with my JVM205.

    Its made in China but honestly sounds just as good as my UK made and american made cabs.

    I recommend you check one of these out.

    Agreed, Blackstar makes very good stuff, especially considering the price factor.

    Satriani uses G12T 75's so a 1936 Marshall cab would do you well.

    My Marshall 1936 is ALL plywood, even the back.
    I like the look of the Marshall cab with a Marshall amp.
    For modern sound the 1936 with stock G12T-75's will sound great.
    I prefer Celestion Heritage G12-65's over GB's and everything else.
    I had a JVM205H and really liked it. It can do any tone.

    The 1936 is an awesome cab. They are pretty sparse on the second hand market and really pricey new.

    I have a JVM210H and it sounds great with a Carvin 4x12 loaded with celestion greenbacks. I Initially paired my JVM with a Marshall 1960 cab with 75s and later matched with a Carvin cab with Vintage 30s. The vintage 30s were a close second place to my greenback cab. The 1960 with 75s was also very good but noticeably brighter.

    Note: Carvin is selling brand new 4x12 USA MADE with vintage 30s for $530 shipped. It's a great value and pro grade. They even customize it with a choice of several colors.

    I have had a JVM 410H since early 2008 and after trying a ton of cabs with it I fell in love with 1960AC which has 4 G12M 25W greenbacks and still love the pairing to this day. I also have a 1960B cab with the G12T-75 but that cab rarely is used with my JVM.
