    I've mentioned this old Marshall stack for awhile. Well, I finally dug down into the pile in storage,
    after I sold off four cabs yesterday and this was the next pair that were in line to get to the shop since I had room.

    So without further ado or fanfare...1967 slant, 1968 straight. 20w G12M's in top, 25w G12M's in the bottom,
    all original 75hz Pulsonic 003 cones, narrow flange metal handles, original tolex, cloth, etc.

    The Queen logo you can see on the back of the slant underneath the Dokken logo.
    I have no idea who Nazgul is/was, but George told me the handwritten Sharpie about the speakers
    was his doing years ago when he owned it.

    A small piece of Marshall, Queen, Dokken history for you. And now, back to sorting out gear for my moving sale.

    Please take note, this 67/68 Queen/Dokken stack is NOT for sale! I just got a call from a MF member who wanted to know what price I would entertain. I told him "Well into the five figures, and there are three people ahead of you." He asked me to give him a call just in case.

    Hi Exotic, seeing a head or cab or even a P.A. setup with multiple band names on them wasn't that uncommon in the 70's or 80's. In L.A. especially there were companies who specialized in buying, selling and renting entire touring backlines. It was cheaper to rent then ship an entire rig across the ocean. You could also rent the same equipment for recording your album. The infamous S.I.R. #34 modded Marshall came from one of these places.:h5:

    I didn't know all those stencils were on the back panel when I bought it a dozen years ago. I sent my ANVIL case, seller put it in, and shipped it back to me. I found out when I unpacked it. I only asked for pics of the speakers, cone codes, and the front and sides. Only later did I talk to George Lynch about it when we met up at Dave Friedman's in 2008/2009 to do speaker ohm sound tasting in identical 4x12 cabs.

    The bottom cab I bought from Adam Palow of Tungsten Amps, recovered the back panel, put some G12M 003 cones in it, and wired it up. Funny how close those grill cloths are in color, but they can't be more than a few months apart since they both have the pre 68 narrow flange metal handles.

    It's the one I had for sale. Now it's staying with this stack when I move...my wife put her foot down about that one.

    I just found my recording gear, mics, Mackie mixer and I'm moving the old Mac Pro Tower out to the shop. Now that I've cleaned off the 9 foot workbench, you may get your wish granted.

    Narrow handles went into 1968, and no '67 cabs I've ever seen had basketweave grille cloth.

    Someone posted a pic of Cream in 67 with BW cabs online a few years back, so it may be possible. OTOH, who knows if they dated that online pic correctly, either. I know the speakers in the Queen / Dokken cab date to late 67, IIRC, when I first got it 12-13 years ago. But I haven't had a reason to open it since then, so maybe I'm remembering it wrong, too.

    Semantics aside, they are cool cabs.

    Yep. Hell I only got the top slant because it had the 20w G12M's in it. The logos being on the back were a bonus I found out about after it got here.

    So cut away a piece of the tolex to be able to write the message on it. That's just insane :pirate:

    Well, it's not like they had ohm and power ratings on them in 60's. That didn't come out until the late 70's IIRC. One old BW cab looks like another, whether it's go 20w, 25w, or 30w speakers in it.

    But I hear you on the Sharpie note in the torn off tolex. I probably need to get the serial # off that cab and donate the info to the Marstran cab page.
