    Available?
    Do you mean current production, order from GC kind of available?
    I'd go JVM410 for versitility

    But I'd want a mix of the V30s in the 1960AV/AB and the T75s from the 1960A/B

    Otherwise, I want @anitoli 's 6100 stack (shown above) ^^^^ !

    It's a subjective "Opinion" type question, My "Available", see below. My "Best" depends on my mood and what I feel like playing in that moment, regardless it's a healthy ear ringing loud! I have paired each head with a full stack of like speakers for specific sounds. 9-9-21 Stacks.jpg1.jpg

    Hey Ray, digging that space! It's gotta be loud there ;) Talk about ringing ears.. I haven't heard crickets for a long time ;)

    Current production Marshalls I'd go with a 1959HW and 1960AHW and 1960BHW cabs with the stock G12H 30s. I've always partial to the 1959, 1987 and the 1967 for their simplicity, power and tone. That's what I would go with.

    Oof..tough call as mentioned above, my mood what I want to play varies day to day.

    I have many different amps, cabs and guitars just for that reason alone.

    At the moment, I'm going through all my MOSFETS and running them through my G12K85'S. It's a new fascinating experience that I can't get enough of. The JCM 900 SL-X is just as beautiful through the same cab.

    The Boogie Mark IIIs have their own EVM Half Back. That's where it's at for those, although they sound fantastic through my G12T75s as well. Pushing big girthy, singing tones.

    The G12T75s/JCM 800 1960 cab is pretty dedicated to my JCM 2000 DSL50 and DSL100 heads.

    My Dual Rectifier Rev. G has it's own Soldano 4x12 w/ V30s. It's about as girthy, fat and tight as you can get for guitar tones ( IMHO). Orange Vintage channel is the perfect juicy mix of Marshall and Boogie with clean boost in the front.

    There's really no best answer which is Marshall of course.

    Yeah. They would be closer at 3.5k to 4k or so.

    That depends completely on your tonal and player's preference.

    Answer that and you've got the start of an answer.

    I prefer the tonality of both stock and well modded original Plexi Superleads.

    For speakers I prefer original Greenbacks or as close to them as I can get.

    A 1959 Superlead, Jose' modded, into a 1960 full of original Greenbacks is pretty much perfection for me.

    I have this...but not the Jose' modded version. When I'm completely confident I know the Jose' mods inside and out, I can adapt them to one of my own amps.

    These may not be the best I have ever played through, but they bring a big dumb ass grin to my face every time I plug into them..
    Thanks

    The other necessary thing is a big enough venue that enhances the amp & stack's full throated roar. One of these days I want to blast one outside...
