    Got a few Marshall Cabinets, decided to try out the matching 'A' box, for the ORI50H. I like it so far. Looking forward to seeing how it holds up in the real world.

    • Regarding the building materials and speakers. MDF, yes. The G12E-60 speakers in the ORI412A look reminiscent of the 1990's Marshall "Gold Back Series" Celestions in my JCM410B. It looks like it was put together well.
    • The tolex feels very soft and I wouldn't have expectation's of it looking good for long, being moved around, without a cover.
    • I like the 800 era style single speaker jack.
    • This cabinet does have the feet which have receptacles for Marshall casters. In the initial move from truck to house, indication is yes, get some casters.
    • Skid trays are absent from the roof of the cabinet.
    • It's 30 pounds lighter than my old 1970's Big M 4x12 cabinet. With judicious used of dollys and moving blankets I was able to get the ORI412A into the house;).
    • I made a sample video of me noodling a bit on the low five watt setting. With this cab, it's a loud five watts. I may be able to revert from the 50 watt setting, to the 10 watt setting, for shows.
    • Looking forward to cranking this bastard. To sum up my first impression- Sounds like a Marshall to me.:smile:
