    I have to commend you guys for caring for these late 70s-jcm800 era cabs. We take them for granted and the resale value shows it, but there are truly getting to be less and less nice examples. Sure they’re much more available than basketweave and pinstripe, but probably not forever. Someday a clean JCM800 B cab will be cherished.

    I have a piece of small check that'd make a nice patch..:naughty:

    THOUGH, I'd guess '76 as the cab date? Isn't '74 early for small check?:hmm:

    Paging @soundboy57 !

    Pretty sure small check was first after salt & pepper, large checkerboard came later. 72 with plastic handles and the plastic trays on top would be correct.

    Might have been wishful thinking..small check starts in '76. :D

    I have always appreciated them. I have had them all in numerous examples.
    I prefer the clarity and tone of the 71-73 checkerboard with Pulsonic cones, more than the basketweave.
    The best sounding cabs I have had were both from '73.
    A G12M 75hz B cab, and a G12M 55hz A cab.
    Lovely sounding.

    I would only digress a little...the basketweave with G12H are pretty tough to beat :)
    But I still prefer the G12M with check cloth.
    My two cents.

    I love this guy :)

    D'oh! I meant large check first in 72, small check came later. God I'm old, and dyslexic. I was always a salt & pepper/basketweave pre-1971 cab guy. LOL

    Yep, I even have this 74 slant on my site...argh! I am dating it as 1974 due to the speaker date codes, piping, etc. But uh, isn't this small check?

    I don’t think so. Large check looks more like squares like yours, small check looks Half the size.

    Ok, good, side be side works. There must have been some other check cloth that was bigger I've seen. Maybe it's an aftermarket cloth, not Marshall. But I swear I've seen something larger than the 74 slant above for check cloth. Ah, old age, 100's of cabs owned later. I may be imagining it.

    The very first checkerboard cabs had a slightly larger check:
