Dating my marshall cabinet

Guitar Center doesn't know the exact year, but that it is from the '70s. :-)I just found this page: best I could tell from here, since I could not make an exact match of the 2nd 1/2 of the serial number on the speakers, was that it was late '70s... _________________________ MUSCLE:91 Mesa Mk4(rack mounted)|Mesa F30|Mesa Nomad45|'78 Marshall 4x12HEART:07 Gibson LP Std 50s Neck|86 Jackson Soloist|92 PRS Custom 24|01 PRS Singlecut|Taylor 814ce|MIM Strat That cab is from the late 70s. Plus, the date code (KL24) dates the speakers to 1977: K = 1977L = November24 = day of the month A 60's Celestion would have the date code switched around with the number first and teh letters second.

I just played a Marshall Speaker cabinet that I will very likely purchase, but I want to make sure I'm paying a fair price. I have posted some pictures here: Vintage Marshall 4x12 As you can see, it is pretty beat up. Those blackback Celestions also point to a 70s cab. They are basically the same speaker, Celestion just used a different color ring for some reason.

I've got that book but the info is all over the map! That "T" series must just mean when the speaker was first put into production in Marshall cabs? As awesome as this cabinet sounded, it is priced too high for its age and condition.

So, always keep your eyes open for “fishy” deals, look for information, and always ask for high definition photos (especially from the interior of the amps – the circuit, the tubes and transformers) to make sure everything is right.

If you don’t have much experience (myself included, to be honest : P), I recommend asking help from the members here of the community.

According to Jim, Ritchie Blackmore, Big Jim Sullivan and Pete Townshend were the three main guitarists who often came into the shop and pushed Marshall to make guitar amplifiers and told him the sound and design they wanted. then expanded, hired designers and started making guitar amplifiers to compete with existing amplifiers, the most notable of which at the time were the Fender amplifiers imported from America.

These were very popular with guitarists and bass players, but were very expensive.

It was founded by drum shop owner and drummer Jim Marshall, and is now based in Bletchley, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.

The Marshall trademark was established circa 1962 in Hanwell, England.

Because of tuberculosis, he wasn't able to go into the forces for World War II. He was able to explore his interest in engineering and electronics and used this engineering experience by working at Heston Aircraft in Middlesex as a tool maker in the late '40s.

In 1946, he started to take lessons to sharpen up his skills.
