Fake Marshall cabinets for show

Postby captpete on Thu Aug 13, 2009 4:25 am

Seattle Craigslist. To burn or not to burn? (not mine!) :shock:



http://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/msg/1320360506.html
6 custom made Fake Marshall cabinets for show. Real Marshall logo, tolex, grille cloth, and corners.
Just put your real Marshall 4x12 on each side or configure it any way you want.
It's very fast and easy to set up, and tear down, takes me about 5 minutes.
2 inside carpeted plywood boxes with casters that holds 3 cabs each.
Plywood trim boards for around the stacks to hide the different cabinet depths.
Removable wood feet on the bottom cabs and 6 C clamps to hold them together.
See photo of the stacks on stage with 2 real Marshall cabs in with the 6 fake ones.
Need to get them out of the garage soon or there going on the burn pile.

Um, burn?

Let me guess. The outfit that sells these must be the same place that sells socks for vocalists to stick down their tight jeans

I think it's clever and enterprising. Marshall has made a similar setup for years for bands like Judas Priest and others. This is the same thing on a smaller scale. When I was putting together my 70's tribute band I wanted to do the same thing to make it feel like a big show...didn't have the skills to build something like that so I ended up buying all the real deals. Beaters and other types of cabs off Craigslist and even a few from Vic (2 Orange 4x12's) and Woody (2 Marshall 4x12's). It was quite a sight to have 12, 4x12's and 3 SVT 8x10's on the stage. Only used a cab for each of use (bass, guitar and vocal/guitarist) but there was always a backup halfstack at the ready. Most stages were too small so we went 3 cabs high. Badass!

+1. And not without precedent.

The real trick is getting everyone in the venue to close their eyes while the "replicas" are loaded in :shhh: .

I dig it and think it's hilarious. I've seen a number of bands (e.g., KISS) where half the stage was made up fake Marshall cabs and it never bothered me.

I think that is very cool! Fake backdrops are very common. It's all about being entertaining to the audience. Why not a Marshall wall? :thumbsup:

Anyone else thinking wall paneling?
One on each side, fireplace up the middle.
Mini fridges painted to look like rack gear in the lower right voids.

Haha, he's been trying to sell those for a long time, his first asking price was $1200 I think. You guys are on the right track with the paneling, I was thinking of the same thing for our rehearsal space. He's 90+ minutes north of Seattle...that's a long drive to spend money on junk...even if it's cool junk. Look where the Marshall head is in the pic. :mrgreen:

Remember boys... they call it "Showbusiness" for a reason. No matter what you think about it... there will be people in the audience who will think you're a big time act and react to you as such.

I'd like mine in basketweave also.

Actually... 2 custom made Hendrix stacks w/ the new repo pinstripe would be cool. Load one bottom cab wired for stereo or wet and dry... and the rest empty.

funny that someone mentioned kiss doin that.. last year i worked the ace frehely show where they had a wall of what their stage manager called "all custom marshalls built specifically for ace" . I suppose he figured i was stupid. the heads were empty boxes with power lights all daisy chained together, and empty cabs. the real amps were under the drum riser facing backwards. his was a 900 haha! the other guitarist had a jubilee head. i was actually sick as hell that day and left before the show started. too bad cuz my buddies said it was a good show. they also mentioned how loud the guitars were but i didn't have the heart to tell them it was an illusion of loud ;-)
