Re: Choosing a cab - Mesa Rectifier Standard vs Marshall 1960V
I'll certainly be sure to test out both cabs, if I get the opportunity to. While I'm at school, I'm within walking distance of the Boston Guitar Center (Boylston St), but at home I'm over an hour from any major guitar store. All of the local shops have very poor selections for amps. It's difficult for me to get anywhere to try out a wide range of options.
Also, the Marshalls that I'm looking at do come with V30's. I asked my friend about the G12C's before I made this thread. In his words, he said they're better for classic rock--I suppose he could be wrong, but he's never given me a bad suggestion before, so I'm more inclined to believe him than not, ha. Additionally, I keep hearing that the Mesa's a very low-end cab. But certainly if I can, I'll try out a cab with V30's and a cab with G12C's.
Thanks for all the responses, everybody! Looks like a general consensus for Mesa. Though I'll keep an eye on this thread up until I actually have enough money to make my purchase in August.
