    Hi there

    I just got a new cab.. well, not so new.

    I do have a Marshall Origin 50c that I use with my covers band. I really Like it. This one:

    We gig a lot in bad reputation bars with no PA many of the times or only place for one or two mics in the mixer, so I am using the 50W many times. But mostly play it on 10W as is really loud.

    Well... I like it so much that I got another for my originals band. This time a head. With this band we go to much reputable venues and they usually have a 1960 or similar on place.

    BUT I need a cab... so I searched, I was looking for a 1936 but this one happened to cross my path and is coming home... I got it for 200€ in my door. It has some cosmetic damage, use and a scar in the front grill. But it has old well broken in speakers. So, I think is a good deal...

    Some Pics:

    I will change the grill cloth for a Bluesbreaker one, just in case I use Both at the same time let them be matched.

    I asked the previous owner to open it and take pics of the speakers just to conform they were not broken

    [​IMG]


    And I got a G12T-75 code BY9 witch dates it from 1990

    [​IMG]

    And a white labeled G12T-75 that I suppose must be from 1985

    [​IMG]

    Well... can't imagine why there speakers from different years but I don't care... aybe one was blown out ot broken...

    I play Rock'n'roll, Pub Rock, Dr. Feelgood style, not much dist, I was using a Bassman 59 LTD but is too big and heavy to haul it two or three times a week for gigs. I think The Origin 50 will fit my band and this cab...

    Next: Clean it, restore scars, glue everything I can, add casters, change grill cloth and play the hell outta it!!!

    That leads me to a question... The 1922 logo... how is it attached to the cab? sticked? pinned like the Marshall logo?

    BUT anything will be after all this quarantine...

    The drill holes for the Marshall logo look like they go all the way through the baffle. Is there similar for the 1922 logo?

    the 1922 badge holder is screwed into the baffle. The brass plate, is glued to it. Get a small flat knife to carefully pry in between the plastic & brass. As you work it, it will peel off. If you have a hair blow dryer, you can heat it up a little, to help the glue release easier. You don't want (or need) to get it too hot, just warm it up, but, you don't even need to do that...

    The logo drills will help me to push it out without breaking it

    NO, the 1922 don't have visible drills

    That's what I was thinking. Thanks, The trick is SLOW and carefully, I see.

    Then, I will have to glue it again to reinstall (If I want to...)

    You can use some small bits of double sided tape to restick the badge if you want.

    I trust glue. It will be gigged, so I prefer it to be as sturdiest as possible

    No problem should work fine, but doubled sided tape is what they use to stick badges and moldings onto cars.

    YES, you are right. I ride a Harley and tank logos are sticked that way. My concerns are that double sided tape is "thick" and glue is thin... so aesthetically talking maybe is better

    Get a picture of him, photoshop it in, and use that instead. Probably on his gear, though.

    Looking for something I don't remember what.
    The smaller size of the 1922 will actually compliment the compact size of the Origin 50H very well.
    Make sure both speakers are the same ohms, as one has been replaced. You would be surprised how many people don't know anything about this and put anything in the cab they pick up cheap.

    That's the idea



    Yes, they are both 16 Ohms

    You might want to think about swapping out the speakers for two 8 ohm wired in series for a 16 ohm load. It won't affect your head but you will be then able to use the cab as an extension for your combo too.
    I have the same cab with two vintage 8ohm Greenbacks in it.

    Well. I am happy as is

    The Origin 50 has a 16 Ohm Out put, a 8 Ohms Output and you can use two outputs with 16 Ohms.

    Using just the cab with the head I can use either the 8 Ohms output of the amp and the 8 Ohms input of the cab (mono) or two 16 Ohms output and two cables going each to a 16 Ohms "stereo" cab side...

    [​IMG]

    If I want to use the cab and the combo I would use just "one side" of the cab.

    Actually I don't think I would do that. The amps are for different bands and they are in a different rehearsal studio in a different town 60 Km far each other.

    And My experience using "stereo" or mono cabs is that I prefer using two cables from the head each cable to each side. Don't know why but to me it sounds better than using the mono 8 ohms way. And also like more parallel wired speakers than serie wired... But is just a feeling. I wouldn't be able to explain it

    This is the Origin 50 output jacks setting:

    I can use 2 and 3 to the stereo cab configuration
