    Hey folks,

    I'm wondering if someone can help me put a price on this cabinet. I've never seen another after years of searching for the top cab, but now I'm too old for lugging around 4x12's. :)

    JCM800 - Lead 1982B
    400Watts @ 8 ohm
    Serial #: 5139
    4 x Celestion G12H-100
    - the magnets are stamped T3594 - which I think dates the cab to 1985
    - the cones are stamped 1777

    Almost new condition except a little fuzz on the grill cloth (stupid cat), and has the vintage cover too.

    Any thoughts on what it's worth? Thanks in advance :nutkick:

    I really can't help you much but I have a 1960b with the same speakers and it sounds incredible. I much prefer the 100 watt Celestion over the 75's. I imagine your cab sounds just as good or better. I'm deeply saddened to see it go on your behalf.:wallbash:

    It's awesome, but I also have the 320 watt top and I really don't need all those speakers anymore. My 900 just doesn't sound the same on 4 ohm either (running both cabs). On top of that, I've only been using my DSL40C... although it doesn't compare to my 900.
