    Wondering what your favorite matchup with this old marshall head is? I feel like my Mesa oversized just doesnt fit well with it, and am looking for something that can seat the mids just right. Any thoughts?

    An old Marshall cab of course. ;)

    for speakers... Greenbacks, G12H30's, or G12-T75's.

    My '82 jcm 800 2204 sounds great with my Marshall 425a. Greenback loaded 4x12 from the vintage modern series.

    I think it suits the older marshalls pretty well.

    I have a friend with marshall 1960bx, and a 1960 jcm900 with gt-75's, available to use, but Im worried that the greenbacks cant handle the monster volume without getting too distorted and farting out.

    My cab gets used alot at gigs with bands using all sorts of heads since I also put on gigs and it gets used as backline. Seen guys with Dual Rectifiers and Bugera 6260's use it at loud gig volume with no volume/farting issues and those heads push out alot more watts than 100watter Marshalls
