Hi all- This is maybe long post, so apologies for you non-readers and short attention spanners. Bear with me, I’m new to the Marshall-type cab thing. I’m getting ready to order the Marshall Origin 50 head here soon, and I’ve been looking at 2x12 cabs for weeks with the right combination of features and price. I’m steering clear of MDF (though I understand some decent Marshall cabs have an MDF back, and I guess I can live with that). I prefer vertical. Some kind of slant/angle would be ideal, too. Given that I have only about a grand – maybe a hair more to spend on both head & cab, that limits my cab hunt to around $500ish. 2 cab styles that really pique my interest are the slant A-cabs (like the SV20 2x12 style), and something along the lines of a Model 1972 2x12. Obviously, given my budget I can’t afford a new SV20 cab @ $850 bucks, and I’m SOL finding a used Model 1972 for any less than probably 2 grand, so... I’ve been looking at Mojotone and some other options like Sour Mash. Mojotone has a British style cab (https://www.mojotone.com/Cabinets_x...ifier-2x12-Straight-Speaker-Extension-Cabinet) that seems to maybe be based somewhat on the 1972. It’s got the flat surface baffle that’s angled back at the top a few degrees, as well as the offset speaker placement. However, in looking at the dimensions, It differs from the 1972 in that it is 3” shorter and 2“ deeper The Model 1972 vert appears to be 30”x26”x12”, while the Mojotone is 27"x26"x14". That's 468 inches of difference, assuming that the ply is the same thickness between the two cabs. Anyway, I guess I’m wondering if it would get me close enough to the 1972, tonally. Also, if anyone happens to have this particular Mojotone, I’d appreciate your thoughts on it. I’m also eyeing the Sour Mash 2061 CX 2x12 cab (https://sourmashguitarcabs.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=37&product_id=52). There are a few Marshall slant 2x12 variants that I’ve seen, so I’m not gonna try to decide which one the Sour Mash might be closest too, and whether that's good or bad, so instead I’m just going to ask if anyone has any experience/opinions about this cab. A note on cab types: My current main rig is two 1x12s stacked. The bottom is an Orange PPC112 and the top is an open back Peavey slanted 1x12. I really like the angle on the Peavey cab for the obvious reasons. Initially I was ONLY looking for slant cabs, but then I saw a demo of the Model 1972 which, although not a slant cab, does have a (slightly) angled baffle and I really liked what I heard from it. I wondered if the angle would be enough to give me some of the projection I like about the slant cabs, or if it’s not a significant enough angle. My gut is still telling me go for true slant, but I dunno. The Origin 50 will be my first Marshall and if I’m gonna go for it, I want to get the best cab I can in my budget range. I do understand that a lot of it is subjective as we all have different preferences and ideas of what will provide 'good tone', etc, etc, etc, ad nauseam. Regardless, I would appreciate your input. The speakers I’m planning on putting in the new cab are 2 WGS ET-65s. I’ve already got one of those that I have been running alongside a Vintage 30 for the last few years – I’m not too crazy about the combo though (I blame the V30 – cuz I love the 65) and want to try 2 ET65s instead. Plus I can’t really figure in 2 new speakers with my budget on top of the head and cab, but I can swing at least one additional speaker. Some other things that might be helpful: I play mostly late 60s/early 70s inspired hard blues rock (Zep/Who/Sab/etc – you know the drill). I guess I’m hoping for a cab that will not not feel overly bright, too middy, or excessively bass heavy or bass-flabby. I like fairly pronounced, thumpy bass that I can feel, with enough thwack to not be muddy (kinda like Hendrix’s tone on 51st Anniversary). Lastly, I’m open to alternate suggestions and considerations as well. You guys are the experts here. At least that’s what the drunk guy said at the door! If you’ve made it this far, thanks!
